The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, says the infrastructure development report card of the President Muhammadu Buhari/ APC-led administration places the party’s presidential flag bearer, Bola Tinubu, ahead of other candidates in the February 25 elections.
Mr Fashola, also the director of the election planning and monitoring directorate of APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), said this at a strategic pre-election engagement with some members of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Yoruba Community for Mr Tinubu on Tuesday.
He said the infrastructure development report card of the APC-led administration in the last eight years is self-evident and fulfilment of the promises made by the party to Nigerians in 2015 and 2019.
“Our scorecard in the last eight years or thereabout is self-evident of a promise made, promise kept, and this is a virtue that set Tinubu ahead of the pack,” he said.
He said Nigeria would witness massive infrastructural development if Mr Tinubu is elected.
Mr Fashola noted that the APC-led administration changed the face of the entire FCT and the nation despite the global economic downturn compared with the 16 years of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“The country stands to witness a more robust and well co-ordinated infrastructural development in line with the renewed hope agenda of our presidential candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu,” the minister said.
Mr Fashola urged leaders and members of the Yoruba community in the FCT to vote en masse for the APC presidential candidate come February 25.
According to him, Mr Tinubu’s antecedents as a former two-term governor in Lagos State remain a barometer for measuring good governance in the country.
The programme convener and representative of FCT Yoruba women, Simi Fajemirokun, charged the community members to go all out and vote for Tinubu and Sen. Kashim Shettima, his running mate.
“The Yoruba vote is very important. We have a Yoruba candidate who is Tinubu, it is important to show our strength as a community, as a people, and as a tribe,” Ms Fajemirokun said.
