The newly sworn-in Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, caused a stir today, Wednesday, November 11, as he resumed work.

When he got to the secretariat, he was joyously welcomed with a loud ovation by the staff of the ministry. He stepped into his office at about 3.15 p.m. He was ushered in by Mrs Grace Papka, the director in charge of Human Resources of the ministry.
He did not waste time as he immediately had a closed-door meeting with the directors in the ministry.
Also, the state’s Minister for Power, Works and Housing, Alhaji Mustapha Shehuri, also arrived at the complex where he joined Fashola and the directors at the meeting.
