The Senator representing Lagos State East senatorial district, Gbenga Ashafa yesterday, praised the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu over the confirmation of former Lagos governor, Babtunde Fashola; his counterpart in Ekiti, Kayode Fayemi and All Progressives Party’s, Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed as ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Ashafa made the remarks in a statement he personally signed to felicitate with 18 ministers who were confirmed Wednesday by the upper chambers saying Tinubu’s foresightedness contributed to the emergence of the aforesaid ministers.
He added: “While I recognise that the task before them is both herculean and complex, I am confident in their ability to succeed and set Nigeria on the path of greatness. With our fearless and visionary leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, at the fore of this team, ably supported by the erudite Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, I am more than assured that this new government will deliver on its promises and make our economy competitive and productive.”
I am particularly proud of the intelligence, poise and grace with which our own former Lagos state governor, Babatunde Fashola , conducted himself throughout his time addressing us in the Red Chambers. His thoughts and plans were illuminating as always. He represented Lagos State very well on that podium and will do very well in the Federal Executive Council. Of that, I have no doubt.”
