Video making rounds on social media suggests President Buhari lied about completion and commissioning of Ogwashi-Ukwu Dam in Delta State, which he claimed was done by his led-administration.
President Buhari addressing the National Assembly on 19th December 2018, during the presentation of 2019 budget said his administration completed and commissioned the Ogwashi-Ukwu Dam.
“To date, we have completed and/or commissioned a number of these projects including; Central Ogbia Regional Water Project, Bayelsa State, Northern Ishan Regional Water Supply Project, Edo State, Sabke Water Supply Project, Katsina State,Takum Water Supply Project, Taraba State, Ogwashi – Uku Dam, Delta State, Shagari Irrigation Project, Sokoto State, Galma Dam, Kaduna State, Mangu Water Supply Project, Plateau State and Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi Water Supply Project, Benue State.”
Contrary to the claim by President Buhari, a video of a man standing on a dry supposed completed Dam sends shock to Nigerians. The man made mention that water used to fill up where he was standing but the Dam construction project was abadoned.
