Fashiola Urges South-West to vote for Buhari
With Buhari 2023 is for the West
On Thursday, 25 October, at special town hall meeting on infrastructure by the ministry of information and Culture and the National Orientation Agency, Babatunde Fashiola, compelled the people of South-west to vote for the APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari in the forth coming election.
“besides the massive investments by the Buhari administration on infrastructure across the country and in the South-West particularly, the region would benefit politically by voting for Buhari.”Fashiola stated.
The minister, who spoke in Yoruba language, said, “Do you know that power is rotating to the South-West after the completion of Buhari’s tenure if you vote for him in 2019?
“A vote for Buhari in 2019, means a return of power to the South-West in 2023. I am sure you will vote wisely.”
Fashola in his speech said, “Is the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway the same as it was yesterday? Those who use the Benin-Ore, Ajebandele-Sagamu highways will know the difference. These are critical roads that provide the spine of the intercourse between us. Without them, it will be difficult for us to relate to ourselves. Before now, our people used to sleep on these roads. Think of the great professors that we have lost on that road. Today, you can travel on these roads without sleeping on them and we have not completed works on them.
“On the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, you will remember in 2017 that I had a public engagement on the massive cut to the budget. You know where the problem came from. Those who made the cut have come back to rebrand themselves. They want you to come back to them. Will you go? In three years of this administration, we have completed the first 93 kilometres of Ilorin-Jebba Road. We are moving forward with age. They will tell you Nigeria is not working but let me ask you; under which government did pipeline explosion, human bombing and throwing of grenade start?” he concluded.
