Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has on Monday, urged Nigerians not to vote based on sentiments but for the progress of the country at large.
Naija News reports that the vice president gave the advice during a door-to-door campaign in Ibafo, Mowe and Ifo local government area of Ogun state where he urged Nigerians not to vote based on emotions nor for tribal and religious lines, but to vote for truthful, and honest leaders.
Osinbanjo who was accompanied by the Ogun All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun and other APC Chieftains during the campaign, further urged the electorates to re-elect President Buhari so as to assure the speedy completion of projects initiated by the Buhari-led administration, and assured that Buhari whom he described as a “promise keeper” would fufill all his campaign promises.
While speaking with a group of electorates who received him the state, the vice president said in his words; “Let us ensure that we vote for honest persons, for progress and development.
“We should vote for our future. We must vote for our future and the future of our children,” the VP said.
“I say again that the difference between President Buhari and others is that, if he promised something; he will surely do it. Even his enemies know he is an honest person and not a thief.
“That is the reason why we believe he should be re-elected.
“Look at the Lagos – Ibadan Expressway, the previous government spent over 15 years on that road; they would release money but the money was siphoned by some people.
” But now we have started the work and we will complete it. We have started Lagos to Kano rail; we have completed the rail from Lagos to Abeokuta and we will soon extend the rail to Ibadan.
“For several years they were on the rail project but couldn’t complete it because of corruption. We have started the Second Niger Delta Bridge. We are also doing projects in different parts of the country. We are going to complete all the projects,” he said.
