#PMBinLagos: Fashola in veiled jab at Obasanjo, says Buhari doesn’t write letters, he gets the job done

Nigerian govt declares Discos as failures, five years after privatisation

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola on Saturday said President Muhammadu Buhari was not in the habit of writing letter but gets things done.

The former governor of Lagos State gave this comment at the All Progressives Congress (APC) rally in Lagos.

This was in apartment ridicule of former President Olusegun Obasanjo who is known for writing letters to criticise his successors, including President Buhari.

Fashola said, “Mr President, I have spoken to our people extensively in Yoruba before you arrived.

“I have delivered your message and the message of your government and our party to them – that ‘Next Level’ means jobs, from Mambilla, to the road projects, to the factories, roads from Apapa all the way to Oworonshoki…”

He continued, “I have told them that you don’t have time to write letters; you get the job done. I welcome you, especially because this is my own village. This is my own ‘Daura’ in Lagos.

“This is Surulere. This is the first city, and this is where, historically, the first dollar was devalued four years ago.”
