Babatunde Fashola

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, expressed hope on Monday that Nigerians will continue to vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, nevertheless, added that the only thing Nigerians can do is not vote for the APC if the party fails to deliver on its campaign promises.

The Minister who spoke with journalists in Abuja on Monday said that even if the commitments are not 100% fulfilled, but the people see signs of commitment and progress, the other parties should forget about displacing  APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, which is why Nigerians should not be expected to vote for them by 2023.

He said: “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,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent 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.”

Speaking further on the effect aggrieved members may have on the party’s fortunes in the next general elections, Babatunde Fashola noted that the party’s caretaker committee is already working on such issues and all party members must cooperate with them to get the job done.

“It was a crisis that led us to have a caretaker committee, we must respect the caretaker committee, let it do its job. Those of us who didn’t contest party positions, let’s focus on our jobs too and stop getting in each other’s way.”
