Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai has corrected the assertion by Senator Ben Murray-Bruce (PDP-Bayelsa East) that the Jonathan administration initiated the Kaduna Rail Project, which President Muhammadu Buhari enjoyed on his way to commission the Kaduna Dry Port on Thursday.
It will be recalled that Ben Bruce had taken to his Twitter handle to inform president Buhari to appreciate Jonathan for the achievement.
However, the Kaduna State governor stated that: “Wrong Distinguished Senator! The Obasanjo administration which Jonathan was not part of, designed, raised the financing and started the EPC of the Lagos-Kano dual track-standard gauge rail system, and the Abuja Light Rail. Yar’Adua-Jonathan stalled both projects for two years!”
