If I am sleeping and wake up to hear Yorubas beating drums of war, I will go back to sleep” -IBB,1993? ?The above quote is a HOAX. IBB NEVER made that comment. I urge those circulating the ‘quote’ to research the history of the Yoruba led 2nd Marine Commando. ?

The problem with Nigerians is that we don’t learn from history. Murtala Mohammed suffered defeat at the hands of Biafrans at Abagana and lost almost 4,000 soldiers and had to be airlifted by a helicopter. These are facts you can verify from the BBC. It was 2 Yoruba men who won the war for Nigeria. Their names are Benjamin Adekunle and Olusegun Obasanjo.

    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.”
