Nigeria’s Minister of Power, Babatunde Fashola

The State Chapter of PDP has advised President Buhari against relying on the unverified claims of achievements of Fashola as minister of Power, Works & Housing, saying the former governor of state has the notorious style and practice of promoting Mediocrity, Propaganda and inappropriate speculation.

In a statement by Taofik Gani, state chapter of PDP said, Fashola remains a misfit as a lawyer to occupy such combined ministries of engineering specialties.

According to the PDP “this patriotic advice is on the heels of the minister celebrating a proposed injection of a mere 30 megawatts of power from the gurara-hydro power plant, when indeed the minister has collected monumental funding well enough to have injected over 500 megawatts into the National grid”

Speaking further, the state PDP describes the attempt by Fashola to celebrate a mere 30 megawatts as laughable but infuriating because Fashola should rather admit failure and feel sober having mismanaged the Power ministry to now cause a drop of supply from over 6000 megawatts when he took over to now less than 2000 megawatts.

“We sincerely advise President Buhari to be very weary of the deceptive skills of Fashola who will usually hype and celebrate even mediocrity.

“Fashola has penchant for misrepresenting facts of his achievements in government and would always rationalise obvious inadequacies.

“As governor of lagos state, he enjoyed unprecedented revenues and donations, yet left many services untouched or unfinished.

“He however deliberately funded his pro-fashola media and commentators so much that pseudo and exaggerated achievements were ascribed to him.

“He employed this model to promote his 8 years government of mediocrity. Fashola ended up making Lagos state be the biggest debtor with local and foreign well over 1 trillion naira.

“Without adopting the government of Ambode, at least we now see signs of government presence in some erstwhile abandoned areas under Fashola”
