The new Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola on Wednesday reported for duty at the federal secretariat, seeking to continue with reforms in the power sector.
The former governor of Lagos State was received at the ministry with jubilation from staff. He was subsequently received by the Director, Human Resources of the ministry, Mrs Grace Papka and immediately went into a meeting with the directors of the ministry.
Fashola however refused to address the press but a statement from the media head of the ministry, Timothy Oyedeji, said that he stated at the meeting his thoughts on how to bring together activities of all the ministries now under his supervision for effective service delivery.
He was quoted to have said: “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 remains to be done, and what are the future plans. We want to continue from there.
