on

president jonathanMinister of Information, Mr Labaran Maku, has noted that the unpopularity of the President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration in the eyes of Nigerians is not unconnected to its resolve to carry out deep reforms in several sectors of the economy.

Maku said this yesterday at the 2013 ministerial platform in Abuja.

He said that despite challenges inherited from previous administrations and current wave of insecurity across the country, Mr. Jonathan had carried on with the transformation agenda, which he said is aimed at revamping the critical sectors of the economy and carrying Nigerians along in his style of governance.

Maku, who decried the spate of negative criticism and violence in the country, urged Nigerians to have confidence in the government “as it is poised to tackle the myriads of developmental problems confronting the country.”

He added that “This President is not popular because he is embarking on some secret and deep reforms and for him to be a reformer, he must carry out some deep reforms that could transform the country. In doing this, he has to carry the people together, which is what we are doing”

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
