Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, on Friday told Nigerians that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is not an option to consider in the 2023 general elections despite the challenges the country is battling with.
Fashola made this claim on a television program as he stressed that despite all the problems in Nigeria at the moment, PDP would never be an option for Nigerians.
He urged the citizens to make the right choices in next year’s elections.
The minister said: “Whatever problems the country has, the umbrella parish is never the solution because most of these problems were created by them.
“I think it is perhaps not helpful to publish that spreadsheet in isolation. What you should do is to compare it with the rest of the world. Tell me anywhere in the world where the cost of living is not rising, whether it is in the United Kingdom or the United States.
“Just three days ago, CNN was showing footage of Americans stealing fuel and they would not be stealing it if it was cheap; these are very challenging times globally for the entire world. So this is not an isolated occurrence that affects Nigeria only.”
Fashola stressed that the Second Niger Bridge and other infrastructural projects undertaken by the Federal Government are for the benefit of Nigerians.
He added: “The Second Niger Bridge connects Nigerians from different angles. In terms of performance and execution, the completion will be done in April of this year.
“I need to say this. Opponents will embarrass themselves by saying infrastructure is nothing serious that the country needs.”
