The Minister of Power, Works, and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, along with the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Muhammad Musa Bello, led a campaign to further President Muhammadu Buhari’s reelection bid.
The campaign, themed FCT Next Level Task Force, took place in Abuja on Friday.
Fashola advised Nigerians to make an informed choice in the upcoming general elections in order to avoid regression in the economy and security of the country.
“We are putting our record on the line, and our government, our party, our President, Buhari, and our candidates deserve another term,” he said in an interview.
“We expect that this campaign will strengthen our bid, not only for the president but for all of our candidates.
“And whilst we have the nationwide rallies led by the president, we also have some other contact levels and campaigns led by the vice president, Senators, House candidates, and gubernatorial candidates reaching out to voters to continue to carry out our message of consolidation and the message of our achievements over the last three years compared to the last 16 years.
“We have done more with less, we have built a foundation, we have recovered the economy, the economy is back on the path of growth, we need to consolidate on what we have built.”
The former Governor of Lagos also listed Buhari’s advantages over his opponents, being “his integrity, his leadership qualities, and all his achievements especially in terms of security.
“There are places here where you couldn’t go out by 7pm just three years ago,” Fashola spoke. “We must reflect on the fact that, while there is a lot of work to do going forward, we must remember where we came from three years ago.
“A lot of stability has happened here in the past three years. People have returned from IDP camps back to their homes and it’s one thing to lose your home and be in an IDP camp, and to build up lives which have been truncated.”
FCT Minister Musa Bello also spoke in an interview, reiterating the important achievements the present administration has made, and asked citizens to make wise decisions at the polls so as to better their own future.
“Buhari has restored hope to this country, ” stated Bello, “and that is why everybody you see here man woman and child are full of hope and that is why we are encouraging them that for this to be sustained it is very important that Muhammad Buhari comes back for a second term.
“If we lose this traction it’ll be very difficult for us to rise out of the ashes.”
