Fashola Reveals Why GEJ Conceded Defeat In 2015

Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola

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.

Speaking further, he disclosed that many people voted for change because they were tired of the way and manner Jonathan’s administration was running the affairs of the country.
In the words of Fashola, “Many didn’t know what happened in detail. One of the reasons, it seems, that they did not contest the outcome of the election was perhaps because the economy was already paused.”
“It does not matter whichever government that took over, they knew everything was down. The foreign earning from crude oil at the international market was falling at an alarming rate.”
“So, when the cash was no longer coming in, they felt like, ‘let them come and take it over after all this is a sinking ship.”

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.
