Minister of Works and housing, Babatunde Fashola has asked Nigerians to vote based on their track record in the 2023 general election.

Fashola said this at the sixth edition of the annual ‘BRF GABFEST’ which was held in Lagos and had the theme ‘What Am I Voting For?’.

The Minister who reacted to someone saying “anger” will make many Nigerians vote in 2023, stated that emotions should not be the primary driver for making choices of quality leaders in the country.

He said;

“We might wonder how to get candidates to address these issues. One way is to look at what their manifestos present and what their political parties profess. The other way is to attend rallies they organize, but I tell you this is often a one-way conversation because we cannot ask questions at those rallies.

“Debates and town hall meetings provide perhaps the best way to put their feet to the fire and we as political employers of these public servants can organize these debates and town halls along with our economic and social groupings.

“In doing so, we must be sensitive, because the candidates cannot attend all debates and town hall meetings. In some cases, we must be willing to accept their accredited spokesperson but this must be an exception and not the rule.

“After all they are the ones looking for our votes and we are the ones who seek to employ them.

“I urge you to vote by holding debates and town halls where you put questions to the candidates to test their abilities.

“I urge you to vote by looking at what the candidates have done before, this is like asking for the referees during an interview or talking to a previous employer. This is how to recruit an employee. Not by anger.”
