Senator Oluremi Tinubu representing Lagos Central Senatorial district on Monday, urged a ministerial nominee, Babatunde Raji Fashola, to accommodate Senators’ plea for employment slots to their constituents.
The female lawmaker remarked that she hadn’t asked for employment slots in Fashola’s Works and Power Ministry in the last administration, but said all Senators should be considered this time.
“Mr. nominee, all of us here have our Constituents back home looking for employment opportunities and I want you to consider our request when you get to office.
“In your last administration, I did not look for employment slots for my Constituents, but this time, we all need you to consider us.”
For over an hour, the former Lagos governor and Minister for Works, Housing and Power in the last administration, was overwhelmed with questions bordering on his Ministry in the last administration.
Senators, who asked questions, were unanimous in their concern over the collapse of road infrastructure and housing deficit across the country.
Senator Lillian Ekwunife (Anambra) lamented that Federal roads in Anambra have collapsed completely, saying that a ” journey of one hour takes four hours.”
She revealed that she was almost looking for a chopper to airlift her to a function which held at Awka, Anambra state capital, on Saturday due to heavy traffic occasioned by bad roads.
