The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, earlier today has urged the people of South-West to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 elections to guarantee a return of power to the region in 2023,Naija News Understands.
The minister stated this at a special town hall meeting on infrastructure organised by the Ministry of Information and Culture and the National Orientation Agency.
Someone should please tell Babatunde Fashola that average Yoruba man is not interested in power coming back to SW in 2023. 2019 is our immediate focus and making Nigeria work again is our goal, political dynamics of 2023 will surely take care of itself.

Fashola said 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.
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.
On the performance of the Administration, Fashola said that the government had kept its promises to Nigerians in the three key areas of security, fighting corruption and rebuilding the economy.He said the essence of the town hall meeting was to showcase what the administration had done in three and half years.
