The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said the All Progressives Congress government is focused on rebuilding the country.
He said the government had discovered that agriculture and infrastructural development could aid economic prosperity in the country, hence it had focused on them.
Fashola spoke on Monday in Abuja while inaugurating the Directorate of Election Planning and Monitoring of the APC Campaign Council headed by him.
He said, “One of the things we have done is feeding nine million children every day. No government on the continent has done that. When the opposition was in government their leaders were too disconnected to understand what hunger meant.
“The way Obamacare was attacked by the opposition is the way the opposition here is attacking us because we are working for the masses.”
The former Lagos governor urged members of the directorate to relate and campaign peacefully in their neighbourhoods to secure votes for the APC.
“You have to protect your votes. It was because we protected our votes in 2015, that was why we won,” he added.
A popular Yoruba actor, Jide Kosoko, who spoke at the event, said Buhari had integrity and the love of the masses at heart.
He said, “If we all believe this, we must be ready to defend our votes. We have a task that must be accomplished at hands.”
