Ekiti PDP Won’t Celebrate Proposed Lagos – Abuja Rail


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti state has accused politicians already celebrating the proposed added railway design as  “attention-seeking sycophants from the powers that be in Abuja.

The party’s State Publicity Secretary, Mr Jackson Adebayo, the PDP said President Buhari should rather address the challenges facing the economy and those praising the president should be mocked, for the reported inclusion of Ekiti  in the rail routes design.

“When we see the rail-lines being constructed here in Ekiti, we will believe them. As it is now, it is still in the realm of the kind of promise made by Dr. Kayode Fayemi about President Barrack Obama of the United States of America’s visit to Ekiti State that never was.”

President Muhammadu Buhari has not done Ekiti any special favour by including the state in routes for a railway project that is still on paper,” Adebayo said.

According to the Secretary “every little thing that they promised, they have not fulfilled. Even the Lagos – Calabar Coastal Rail line that is in this year’s budget, have they done anything on it? What has happened to the much publicized School Feeding Programme and N5,000 per month stipend for unemployed youths?”

“Ekiti people are wise enough not to succumb to the propaganda of ‘we will’ that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is known for by praising President Buhari for what he has not done.”

The party called on the federal government to refund the billions of naira spent on the rehabilitation and construction of federal roads in Ekiti State.
