The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has insisted that Nigerians will vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general election.
Fashola stated this when he appeared on Sunday Politics, a Channels TV programme.
The former Governor of Lagos state was asked about Nigerians’ perception of the APC and if the party will be re-elected for the presidency in 2023.
In response, Fashola said the party will be re-elected based on what it has done for Nigerians, compared to previous governments.
“Nigerians have had the opportunity of two governments,” he said.
“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.”
