The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s claim that the late Head of State, Gen Sani Abacha constructed roads from Abuja to Port Harcourt.
Buhari had on Tuesday stated that contrary to the opinion of Nigerians, he agreed to work with Abacha, stressing that during the period roads were constructed, even as education and health were “touched”.
Reacting, PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan said such comment shows that the president “knows little about this country.”
In a tweet on his official Twitter handle, Ologbondiyan wrote: “If the President @MBuhari actually said that himself and Abacha built road from Abuja to Port Harcourt then it is unfortunate.
“It simply shows that he knows very little about this country.”
Buhari had spoken yesterday while receiving members of the Buhari Support Organisations (BSO) led by the Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ali, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“I don’t care the opinion you have about Abacha but I agreed to work with him and we constructed roads from Abuja to Port Harcourt, Benin to Onitsha and so on. We also touched education and health institutions,” he had said.
