2023 elections: Some actions, comments disgracing Nigeria – Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has condemned certain actions and comments ahead of the 2023 elections.

The former Lagos State governor advised citizens to stop exaggerating Nigeria’s problems and shaming the country.

Fashola spoke Thursday in Lagos in an address at TheNiche Annual Lecture themed “2023 Elections and the Future of Nigeria’s Democracy”.

“We can win elections without exaggerating our problems. We can do so by offering credible service and well thought out solutions.

“We can win elections without disrobing our country before the global community”, NAN quoted him saying.

Fashola noted that the focus should mostly be on Nigeria’s possibilities, not the nation’s fault lines.

He insists elections must be based on ideas and choices that bring out the best of the people and country.

Fashola decried the rate of heckling, online trolling, hate, in-person verbal abuse, and reckless views about ethnicity and religion.

The minister urged Nigerians to understand that choices have consequences as the nation moved to another electoral cycle in 2023.
