Senator Rochas Okorocha has stated that the immediate past Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has been so encumbered by the three Ministries left under his care that he has started having grey hair at 56.
Okorocha, a former governor of Imo State, said this when he spoke at the screening of Fashola in the senate chamber. According to Okorocha, the former minister had grown grey hair because of the enormous work of overseeing the three ministries.
“The three ministries are too large for one person. Look at my friend; he now has grey hair,” Okorocha said.
Alongside Fashola, those scheduled for screening today July 29th include Rauf Aregbesola (Osun), Geoffrey Onyema (Enugu), Gbemisola Saraki (Kwara), Maryam Katagum (Bauchi), Muhammadu Mahmoud (Kaduna State), Clement Agba (Edo) and Suleiman Adamu (Jigawa).
The remaining three Ministerial nominees, Sabo Nanunu (Kano), Saleh Mamman (Taraba) and Lai Mohammed (Kwara), will have their screening conducted on Tuesday, July 30th.
