Vote Buhari For Presidency In 2019 And Power Will Return To You In 2023 – Fashola Tells South-Westerners
The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, on Thursday, during a special Town Hall Meeting on infrastructure, urged all South Westerners to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 elections to guarantee a return of power to the region in 2023.
The Town Hall Meeting is reported to be organized by the Ministry of Information and Culture and the National Orientation Agency.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, and three other ministers including Fashola, Ministers of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and Water Resources, Suleiman Adamu, were also in that town hall meeting.
Fashola said besides the massive investments by the Buhari administration on infrastructure across the country and in South-West, in particular, the Southwest would benefit more politically by voting for Buhari. Fashola, who spoke in Yoruba language, with a proverb, said:
“Did you know that power is rotating to the South-West after the completion of Buhari’s tenure if you vote for him in 2019?
“Your child cannot surrender her waist for edifying beads and you will use the bead to decorate another child’s waist. A vote for Buhari in 2019, means a return of power to the South-West in 2023. I am sure you will vote wisely.”
On the performance of the Administration, Fashola said that the government had kept its promises to Nigerians in the three key throngs of security, fighting corruption and rebuilding the economy.
