El-Rufai, Sen. Ben Bruce in Twitter War over Abuja-Kaduna Rail

 On Thursday, while President Muhammadu Buhari was in Kaduna to commission newly acquired train couches for the Abuja-Kaduna rail, Senator Ben Bruce released a tweet, berating the administration for not crediting the project to ex-President Jonathan whom he said conceptualised it.
Kaduna state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai replied, calling the Common Sense Senator a liar. According to the Gov. the said project was initiated by Obasanjo and not Jonathan.
El-Rufai tweeted:

"Wrong Distinuguisnhed 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!"


But is seems the war is far from over as Sen Bruce has also replied with another tweet saying:

"Your dislike of the late Yar’adua may have clouded your judgment. I made no mention of the ‘Abuja light railway’. My tweet referred to the Abuja-Kaduna railway which IS a product of the Jonathan administration. I am happy to publicly debate this with you."
