A member of the Northern Elders Forum and the Chairman of Maje Foundation, Alhaji Rufai Mukhtar Danmaje has called on Babatunde Fashola to resign his position immediately as the Minister of Works and Housing.
Acccording to the northern elder, the former governor of Lagos has not completed any single project in the north since he became the Minister of that key department five years ago.
He said that Fashola still recorded failure in the entire north despite massive tax payers funds at his disposal.
He asked President Mohammadu Buhari to sack him if he fails to tender resignation letter.
He added that Fashola needs to explain how he spent hundred of billions of Naira allocated to his ministry every year
“For example look at the issue of Mambila Hydro Power project. Over time the Minister has been deceiving the President and indeed Nigerians that works have reached high percentage but only for a committee to now expose that there is nothing on ground there”.
He cited the issue of Mambila hydro Power project as one of the reasons why Fashola deserved to be booted out
He said, “if people like Fashola continue to talk about rotational Presidency back to the South, they might provoke us to reject voting for anybody from that region because we consider him a failure and nothing more.
“You could see that no single road project is been completed under Fashola in the entire Northern Nigeria even the darling Kano, Kaduna, Abuja road he is saying can’t be completed till after their tenure, so what are we saying?
