Ministerial Screening: Nigerians Single Out Fashola

The senate has confirmed the appointment of Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN) and 17 others as ministers while the Screening of Rotimi Ameachi was deferred. Lets see what happens today. Do you think Ameachi would scale the hurdles? well, that is an issue for another day...

Fashola was the first to appear before the senate yesterday and ever since his appearance, Nigerians have singled him out. No thanks to JAGABAN, all thanks to President Buhari who had already spotted the potentials in Fashola. According to the rumours, Fashola was not Tinubu's preferred candidate to represent Lagos in the Federal cabinet. Anyways, that issue is now laid to rest.

All through the screening, Fashola held the attention of the senators as he confidently answered his questions. When quizzed about the borehole and website fraud allegation, he responded: “As governor of Lagos state, i didn’t sign cheques, none of my commissioners signed cheques.”

Nigerians were wowed by his amazing performance and are now talking about it on social media. Some are already campaigning for him to be president of Nigeria. See some of the comments below;

I hope the 36 state governors are watching Fashola's screening and taking notes.

Babatunde Fashola, SAN is a difficult man to hate, firm, articulate, upright and full of substance #MiinisterialScreening
