Hours after he was named the new Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola made his first appearance at the Ministry of Works where he had a close-door session with the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Louis Edozien and other Directors so as to chart a new course for the ministry.
Fashola in his address said his focus will be on how to bring together processes and activities of all the Ministries now put under his supervision for effective service delivery. He pledged to work with all the staff of the various ministries.
“We are here to work with you, in solving problems on ground as quickly as possible, we want to know if some of those problems are man-made or systemic.
We want information on what has been done, what remained to be done, and what are the future plans, we want to continue from there. We need to do more so as to regain lost time” he said.
