The minister of power, works and housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, has apologized to staff of the ministry whom he may have offended during his tenure as minister.
Fashola stated this on Tuesday, May 28, as the management and staff of the ministries gathered to bid him farewell, Vanguard reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the minister thanked the staff, whom he referred to as “a great team”, for keeping pace with him and enduring his schedules in spite of the inconveniences sometimes.
He added: “I want to apologize to those I invaded their privacy with my phone calls and text messages. I apologize to your spouses and your children because it was done only in the national interest.”
He continued: “Those of you I have offended one way or the other, I am not perfect, I am flawed; but I did not offend you deliberately.
“If I did, it was unintentional; my apology is deep, it is profound, it is unreserved.”
Fashola said he couldn’t thank everyone individually; noting that as a team and a chain, “it is impossible to thank one without thanking the other.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that barring last minute changes, any of the trio of Col Hameed Ali (rtd), Adamu Adamu or Babatunde Raji Fashola, will be named as substantive chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The move is part of the president’s plan to attract fewer controversies and rejig his cabinet for the next four years.
With the presidential inauguration out of the way, all eyes are now set on who gets appointed into the president's kitchen cabinet and the Federal Executive Council made up of ministers and key appointees.
