'APC Will Still Be In Power After 2023' - Fashola Reveals Strategies
Fashola revealed that people will vote any party that keeps to its promises, even if it has not performed a 100 percent.
The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has disclosed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will only retain power in 2023 if it fulfils its promises to Nigerians.
Fashola stated this while speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Monday, according to Daily Post.
According to him, people will vote any party that keeps to its promises, even if it has not performed a 100 per cent.
Fashola stated: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly, if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics.
''If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred per cent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.
“Our opposition parties ought to think better than us in order to defeat us. Right now they are not doing that and I won’t teach them how to do it.''
In another report, Fashola said no money was missing or stolen under his watch between September and December 2019.
Fashola denied reports that he supervised the illegal payment of N4.6bn into private accounts when he served as Minister of Power, Works and Housing.
The minister attributed the controversy over the payment of N4.6bn to some directors to challenges arising from the use of government payment platform, the Integrated Personnel Payment and Information System.
