The senior special assistant on public communication to Atiku Abubakar, Phrank Shaibu, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari should stop taking credit for projects executed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He was reacting to the inauguration of the new terminal of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja by Buhari yesterday.
Shaibu, in a statement, said that the past PDP administrations of Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Yar’Adua and Goodluck Ebele Jonathan started and mostly fully paid for most of the developmental projects inaugurated by Buhari.
He said, “It needs to be emphasised that new terminal of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport is among the many projects conceived and started by the immediate past PDP administration of Jonathan.
“The last administration had obtained a $500 million facility from the Chinese Exim Bank, with additional funding of $100 million from Nigeria to build four international terminals in Port Harcourt, Lagos, Abuja and Kano.
“We understand that governance is a continuum and that’s why there should not be unnecessary orgasms by sympathisers of the Buhari’s administration in trying to change the narrative that the new terminal and the one earlier commissioned in Port Harcourt were achievements of the Buhari administration.
“Isn’t it strange that the APC is now resorting to projects conceived and executed by PDP as its achievements in office after spending almost four years in office with nothing to show for it?”
