The minister said this at a special town hall meeting on infrastructure organised by the ministry information and the National Orientation Agency (NOA).

Lai Mohammed, minister of information, led Fashola, Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation; and Suleiman Adamu, minister of water resources, to the town hall meeting.

Fashola said besides, the massive investments by the Buhari administration on infrastructure across the country and in the south-west particularly, the region would benefit politically by voting for Buhari.

The minister, who spoke in Yoruba, said: “Do you know that power is rotating to the south-west after the completion of Buhari’s tenure if you vote for him in 2019?

“A vote for Buhari in 2019, means a return of power to the south-west in 2023. I am sure you will vote wisely.”

On the performance of the administration, Fashola said that the government had kept its promises to Nigerians in the three key areas of security, fighting corruption and rebuilding the economy.

He said the essence of the town hall meeting was to showcase what the administration had done in three and half years.



  1. Fashola, what made you think power will return to South West in 2023? I have known you as a brilliant young man but in this case your speculation is very wrong? You seem not to consider other ethnic nationalities and that made you somewhat selfish in your assertion. Please use the remaining months you have as a minister to see how you can improve electricity and leave politics for politicians because you don’t belong to that class.
