The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola on Friday revealed why former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan conceded defeat in the last presidential election which brought President Muhammadu Buhari into power.
According to Fashola, Jonathan had no choice then because the economy of the country was in a big mess and was almost collapsing.
As gathered by NIGERIA NEWS, the Minister made this disclosure while speaking during a chat on “PMB’s Scorecard On Power, Works And Housing: The Journey So Far” in Lagos.
He also commented on the collapsed situation he met in his ministry after taking over upon his appointment by Buhari as a minister.
Fashola claimed that “When you put that into perspective that when I was leaving as the Lagos State governor in May 2015, a total of N74 billion was earmarked for road construction and somebody was seated somewhere and happy that N19billion was all that was earmarked for all roads in Nigeria.”
He, however, urged Nigerians to keep believing in the administration of President Buhari which is putting all hands on deck to ensure that the country moves forward.
