Which President should get the credit for the Abuja-Kaduna railway?

by Joachim MacEbong

The Abuja-Kaduna standard gauge railway was opened for business by President Buhari and other government officials today in Abuja, and they took a ride to Kaduna to commemorate it. While that was on however, Nigerian Twitter was busy debating about who should take credit for the achievement.

The GEJ camp insisted that the former president deserved the bulk of the credit, and should even have been invited to the ceremony and given some of the credit in order to build bridges. Buhari supporters for their part also insisted that the praise should go the person who actually completed the project, given how many of our projects end up abandoned. Below is a series of tweets that should provide some clarity.

The above tweets indicate that the bulk of the credit therefore should to GEJ, but credit should also be given to Buhari for not scrapping the project or delaying it unnecessarily. We have far too many uncompleted projects already. Next!

  1. Comment: Buhari should please recognise the effort of others and stop claming praise where he has just contributed very little.

  2. It is not about Presidents getting credit, its about moving the country forward. This kinds of posers rather create more divides.

  3. u guys are just too petty, it’s nigerians that will get d credit bcos it was tax payers money that was used 2 execute the project.

  4. Jonathan that did the project but wasn’t in power to commission it should take credit. buhari is yet to do one notable project

  5. president Buhari because he was the one who paid the percentage Nigeria was suppose to pay for the project. China paid the highest.

  6. I think they should both take the credit 50/50,thanks to the man that initiate the move and thanks to the man that accomplished it
