Sen Okorocha blames Buhari for Fashola’s grey hair



Presidential Committee orders APC to lift suspension on Okorocha

Imo West senator and former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, on Monday apparently blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for much of the grey hair on the head of former Power, Works and Housing Minister, Babatunde Fashola.

According to him, the three ministries which Buhari assigned to the former minister to handle, were too much to be headed by one person.

Okorocha stated this when the Senate screened Fashola at the ongoing ministerial screening exercise at the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly in Abuja.

He said, “The three ministries are too large for one person. Look at my friend; he now has grey hair.”

Fashola was among the ministers who served in Buhari’s first term cabinet and got reappointed as a ministerial nominee in the list of 43 the President sent to the Senate last week Tuesday in consideration of his second term cabinet.
