Lagos – Some members of the Lagos State House of Assembly on Thursday said that the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola (SAN), had a lot of hard work to do.
The lawmakers who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos said that the former governor of Lagos needed to work hard not to disappoint Nigerians and the President.
They expressed confidence in the ability of Fashola, but said that that power remained the only problem impeding the development of the country.
Mr Oluyinka Ogundimu (APC- Agege II) said the minister needed to buckle up to address the problem of power which had defied all imaginable solutions.
“A big task has been given to Fashola; I do not envy him because he has the most difficult task at hand.
“Fashola can’t do it alone; he must really sit down and develop a team that will work with him to develop a system that will be working whether he is there or not.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”70560″]
“President Muhammadu Buhari is expecting so much from him and Nigerians are also expecting a lot from him. So, for things to work, he must get people of like minds to work with.
“I don’t have any doubt with Works and Housing, Fashola will deliver; but with Power, he will do extra work, he will not sleep to bring change,’’ Ogundimu said.
Mr Abiodun Tobun (APC-Epe I) said that Fashola’s performance as governor of the state spoke a lot about him as an achiever and actualiser.
Tobun urged the minister not to disappoint the trust reposed on him to transform power and put in place infrastructure.
Also, Mr Setonji David (APC-Badagry II) said the minister was given serious areas where Nigerians are expecting change.
“Power, Works and Housing are very crucial to the happiness of Nigerians who voted for change,’’ he said.(NAN)
