The Minister for Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, says the South-west has more to gain by re-electing President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.

Mr Fashola, who was in Lagos on Tuesday for the inauguration of 5000 campaigners for Mr Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, said that the South-west already had high stakes and appointments in the current administration.

He said the promise of the Secretary to the Federal Government (SGF) slot by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is not enough for the South-west to lose the positions it is currently occupying.

Gbenga Daniel, the Director General of the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, had said that the position of the SGF would be given to the South-west, if Mr Abubakar emerged as president in 2019.

“As a South-west indigene, I will vote for the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket, because my people stand to gain more from it,” Mr Fashola said.

He said the reelection of Mr Buhari would guarantee that power would come to the South-west in 2023.

“The South-west is presently occupying the position of the vice president. We have three sitting ministers and many different federal appointments from the present administration which we cannot afford to lose,” he said.

The minister said that although the APC promised change in 2014, the party did not promise to do it in four years.

“The APC has done more in three years than 16 years of PDP administration, yet they say President Buhari is too slow.
