Fashola Says Right-Thinking Nigerians Will Vote For APC In 2023
Fashola claims that the APC has done its best to serve the country.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
The All Progressives Congress (APC), which is now in power, is expected to win the 2023 presidential election with the support of right-thinking and well-intentioned Nigerians, according to the Minister of Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola.
Because of how effectively it has run Nigeria, according to Fashola, the governing party will win the election.
On Sunday, July 24, 2022, while appearing on Channels TV’s Sunday Politics, the former governor of Lagos State made this statement.
“Nigerians have had the opportunity of two governments.
“On a very deep reflection, right-thinking and well-meaning Nigerians will re-elect our party into governance, I am optimistic about that.
“I think we have served this country as efficiently as we can — in the most difficult of times.
“No government has faced COVID; we did. No government has faced a global scarcity of resources caused by a war in which we are not involved; we did and we are still managing that economy, providing hope and sustainability.
“I’m optimistic that we will win,” Fashola says.
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, and Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, recently fought. Fashola asked them to put their disagreements behind them and start focusing their campaigns on issues.
He said, “The exchange of words, at best, I will call it a stumble. They should quickly recalibrate.”
Atiku and Tinubu’s spat began when the former vice president claimed during an appearance on Arise TV that he had rejected Tinubu as his running mate in the 2007 presidential race.
In response to a query addressing the contentious Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC, Atiku made this statement.
Recall that Kashim Shettima, a fellow Muslim, was recently chosen by Tinubu as his running partner for the 2023 presidential race.
The Tinubu Campaign Organization (TCO) responded to Atiku’s assertion by saying Atiku is not prepared to serve as president.
According to the organization, Atiku ignored crucial questions during the interview and “muddled facts and demonstrated befuddling lack of mind during the interview.”
Atiku’s assertion was also refuted by Tinubu, who said that he was the one who approached him about running for vice president but was turned down.
Atiku, however, isn’t going to allow the remark from Tinubu’s camp to go unanswered, and in a statement sent by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, he took another aim at the former governor of Lagos.
Atiku implied that Tinubu’s memory might not be as sharp as it once was in the statement.
He asserted that Tinubu would undoubtedly forget what transpired in 2007 and 2015 if he could forget the name of his party.
