Last week, Viva Naija’s espied ministerial portfolio pointed Babatunde Fashola as the minister for Power; well, we weren’t far from right as the official list from the Presidency, released moments ago, corroborated us, just that this list went two miles further. The undoubtedly cerebral former Governor of Lagos state has been ascribed the responsibility of performing ‘Change-wisely’ in 3 ministries, Power, Works as well as Housing, Land and Urban Development, all combined into 1.
Babatunde Fashola emerged the Minster of Power, Works and Housing – whew! He seems to have the toughest portfolio out of the lot. He can be proverbially seen as ‘Thor’, who in Norse mythology, is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning,(Power) storms, oak, and strength (Works), and the protection of mankind (Housing). 😆 May passion help Fashola oh.
Also, the Nigerian government have again committed the purse of the home to the woman. One named Kemi Adeosun emerged the minister for Finance. In the past, in this our 16-year democracy, women have been at the helm of our finance. This time, we hope an Adeosun will combine expertise, consummation and the feminine briskness, to better her predecessors in performance.
The President, shortly after inaugurating the ministers, also named a former governor of Rivers State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister for Transportation, while Lai Mohammed got the Information portfolio as widely expected. Buhari also maintained his position as Petroleum Minister.
