Senator Ben Murray-Bruce has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s claims on the Abuja light rail project is “factually incorrect.”

Buhari had said during the commissioning that his government started and finished the project, a statement the lawmaker said was not true.

“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,” the lawmaker wrote on Facebook.

“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!”
