Titi Abubakar, the wife of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC), for taking credit for railways built and fully paid for by former President Goodluck Jonathan’s government.
She said this yesterday, at a Town Hall meeting organised in her honour, by Ndigboamaka Progressive Association in Lagos.
According to Titi, Buhari’s government cannot point at any major project it started during his tenure.
“Since the APC came into office, they could not initiate any project and, even the railways that they are now commissioning, were fully paid for by Jonathan. All they are doing is to complete what was almost completed and claim it as their project. They should point at any project that they started and completed.
“We have traversed the entire country; to bring a message of hope and we are confident that God will crown our efforts.
“Atiku said I should tell you that the wants to better the lot of our people. He wants to cleanse the mess that this administration created. The other party said that the PDP ruled for 16 years, but, what they have borrowed in less than four years is far much more than what the PDP borrowed in its entire time that it was in power. When a government is not functioning well, we should vote them out and I believe Nigerians would do the right thing by voting out the APC.
“Even president Buhari’s wife told the entire nation that her husband is not in charge and that the country is being controlled by two men. Should Nigerians still vote for a man who is being controlled by a cabal?
“Atiku is pro-business and is a wealth creator; who has successful businesses and has been able to manage them well,” Titi said.
