Babatunde Raji Fashola, minister of works and housing, has stated that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has to think faster and be “better than us” to retake power in 2023.
The minister made this known on Tuesday, November 24, as conversations continue to be broadened on power shift when President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure is over.
The former two-term Lagos state governor described the PDP as a weak opposition to wrestle power, saying the APC has done massively well to retain the seat in 2023.
“Our opposition has to think better than us in order to defeat us, right now they are not doing that. When it’s election time they should come and meet us.”
Fashola, who has been rumoured to be eyeing the slot of vice presidency, expressed surprise over the defection of Governor Dave Umahi to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The minister said “some governors have joined us from where we think that we cannot get water before.” He enjoined his colleagues in the current administration to face their works and “stop bashing in each other’s room.
