Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, says the APC indeed promised change in 2014 when it was campaigning but that it never promised to effect the changes within four years.
The minister said this at the inauguration of President Buhari’s 2019 campaign in Ikeja, while was urging Nigerians to be patient with the ruling party.
“In 2014, we said we would change Nigeria but we did not say we will do it in four years. This election, therefore, is a choice between going forward to the next level or backward because the work has already begun.
“Since I became a minister, the president has never interfered in what I do. He has never lobbied me for contract and I can assure you that it is like that with other ministers.
“The oil revenue the former government took advantage of, what did they use it for?” he asked
Speaking further, Fashola took a swipe at the main opposition party, PDP. According to him, the opposition would not have lost the election in 2015 if they had performed very well.
