Fashola Admonishes Youths over Presidential election


Report gathered that, Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola has told Nigerians to vote out General Muhammadu Buhari if he fails to perform in his first term if given the mandate on 28 March.

Fashola spoke at a Town Hall meeting with students and youths addressed by Buhari at the Muson Centre, Lagos, southwest Nigeria, on Thursday.

The governor said the time had come for people to vote for performance and that those who were first given the mandate and failed to perform should be kicked out through the ballot box.

He urged the youths to defend their votes, which he said did not mean fighting and being violent, but to wait until their votes were counted.

“Vote and defend your votes. It does not mean you should fight. Wait until your votes are counted. Nobody, armed or unarmed, has the right to stop you from voting. It is your right,” he said.

Fashola wondered why a Federal Government that promised to improve technology would be afraid of the use of card reader for the election, saying why did it issue the Permanent Voter’s Card in the first instance?

The governor said this was the best time for Nigeria to change a government that is not performing at the centre and that by so doing, they would make history as the first generation to have changed a bad government through the ballot box in Nigeria.

“If you agree your country is not doing well and you want to change it, it will be the first time a bad government is changed by the people in Nigeria. If you elect Buhari and Osibanjo, you will have succeeded in changing a bad government and if Gen. Buhari and Osinbajo did not perform, you should vote them out,” he said.
