The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said former President Goodluck Johnathan only conceded defeat after the 2015 elections because he knew the nation would witness economic recession soon.
The Former Aide to President Goodluck Jonathan took to his twitter account to support his former and tell the Minster to focus on buhari’s WAEC result.

1-I am surprised that rather than help @MBuhari, look for his invisible WAEC certificate (allegedly been ‘kidnapped’ by the army), @tundefashola, persists in slandering @GEJonathan, saying he only conceded 2015 elections due to the impending recession #FasholaFocusOnBuharisWAEC
2-@tundefashola knows there was no ‘impending recession’ at any time when @GEJonathan was President. What was on the horizon, was economic boom as evidenced by CNNMoney which projected Nigeria as the third fastest growing economy in the world in 2015 #FasholaFocusOnBuharisWAEC
3-@tundefashola knows ex President Jonathan handed over a robust economy to @MBuhari, with a single digit inflation rate (it is now double digit), a Petrol Pump Price of ₦87 (it is now ₦145) and a Naira valued at ₦199 to $1 (it is now ₦365 to $1) #FasholaFocusOnBuharisWAEC
4-@tundefashola is aware economic conditions under Jonathan was much better than today. @Gallup polls rated Nigeria under Jonathan as the ‘happiest nation on earth”. Today, the World Economic Forum rates Nigeria world headquarters for extreme poverty #FasholaFocusOnBuharisWAEC
5-@tundeFashola knows that Nigeria’s 1st recession in 25 years occurred under Buhari because he took 6 months to appoint his cabinet. Even at that, he ended up appointing inept certificate forgers to handle a sensitive ministry like the finance ministry #FasholaFocusOnBuharisWAEC
6-Furthermore, the utterances by @tundefashola’s boss, when he went abroad, only demarketed the economy and trigger capital flight. If Buhari was not telling the world all Nigerians were corrupt, except him, he was saying that Nigerian youths are lazy #FasholaFocusOnBuharisWAEC
7-I remind @tundefashola that on July 12, 2014, he said “the only way you and I will have electricity in this country is to vote out the PDP.” Mr Fashola is fond of denying his statements. I remind him he cant deny this one because it was caught on tape #FasholaFocusOnBuharisWAEC
8-@OfficialPDPNig is no longer in office and @tundefashola has been minister of power for over three years, yet the power situation has not improved. Yet, Fashola continues to dance Unclad in the market and blame Dr. Jonathan for what his bad gang caused #FasholaFocusOnBuharisWAEC
