The senator representing Bayelsa East, Ben Murray-Bruce has declared that President Muhammadu Buhari’s claims on the Abuja light rail project was “factually incorrect.”
He stated this on Thursday via his Facebook page.
The lawmaker dismissed President Buhari’s comment that his government started and completed the project.
Bruce argued that the project was initiated and came to a near completion by the previous administrations of Obasanjo, Yar’adua and Jonathan respectively.
Ben Bruce wrote, “NOTICE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. The Abuja Light Railway project today commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari is NOT an example of the present administration’s delivering on its promises, as the President claimed today. That is factually incorrect.
“That is a project by the previous government. It was initiated by President Obasanjo and most of the work was completed by the Yar’adua and Jonathan regimes. Truth must be sacrosanct!”
