The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on it twitter handle (@PdpNigeria) has attacked the All Progressive Congress (APC) on Abuja-Kaduna speed train.
PDP in a tweet said ‘is it not ironic that ‘Buhari’ who cancelled Lagos Rail Project initiated by Jakande 3 decades ago will now commission Abuja-KD Fast Rail?’
The Abuja-Kaduna rail line is one of the first standard gauge railway modernisation projects (SGRMP) undertaken in Nigeria. The standard gauge line links Abuja (Federal Capital Territory) with the commercial capital Kaduna, enabling faster movement of goods and people between the two cities. The rail project is expected to create over 10,000 jobs when fully operational.
The PDP in it tweets also said that it does not believe in the 97% vs 5% ideology of President Buhari and that those who said that the Abuja-Kaduna speed train was a locomotive train are now struggling to be associated with the rail project.
The party further accused the APC-led government of President Buhari of building an helipad in Daura .
‘Our party does not believe in the 97% vs 5% ideology of president Buhari.
Same people who said the Abuja-Kaduna Fast Rail was a colonial LOCOMOTIVE now struggling to associate with it and even commission it.
