Fashola Cries Out

Babatunde Raji Fashola, Minister for Works, Power and Housing has denied giving money to fund President Muhammadu Buhari’s presidential campaign…

“Even though every election campaign needs money but not under my watch will anyone divert tax payers money to fund political party campaign. We have never did and we will never do it.”

“I have seen the the document, it was sent to me and when you see it, you will see the minute on it, saying, ‘Please advise.’ That is a very serious word from the ministry to say nothing will happen.”

“Government is not a place to play politics with public fund. I raised some of this observation during the last administration when the then Minister for Finance was attending rallies with Transformation Ambassador of Nigeria, (TAN). This doesn’t happen in any other democracy.”
