The lawmaker who obviously was irked by Governor Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya taking all the accolades said credit must be giving to the President instead of the governor for the construction
He added that these projects were conceived as part of plans for the recovery of the North East.
These projects according to the lawmaker are being managed by North East Development Commission (NEDC) on behalf of the federal government.
