The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN, has unveiled a book titled ‘Proof of Infrastructure Delivery Across Nigeria” in which he highlight his performance in the last three years, five months and eighteen days.
In his address at the book presentation in Abuja, Fashola recalled his maiden briefing on December 8, 2015, when he promised to increase budgetary allocation for the Ministry and delivering on incremental power.
He recalled how he promised to increase Works budget from N19 billion to revive construction activities and create better roads. He also promised a National affordable housing scheme.
On these promises, Fashola said, “I feel confident to say that with the help, support and cooperation of our staff, under the leadership of our Permanent Secretaries and Directors, we have delivered on the agenda I set out at the 2015 maiden press briefing. “Very simply, we have made this place better than we met it. That is what our mandate for change meant and still means; making it better.”
“In the Power sector, well- meaning Nigerians acknowledged our efforts by saying clearly that their power supply experience has improved compared to 2015 and we acknowledged that the work has not finished,” he said.
Fashola said going forward, the team will work to solve the outstanding issues of estimated billing, supply of meters, add more power and make the supply steady.
