The immediate past governor of Lagos, Babatunde Raji Fashola, has stated that president Muhammadu Buhari has a clear idea of what he wants each confirmed minister to do in his government.
Speaking to All Africa, Fashola noted that top priorities for the Buhari-led administration are security and the economy.
“The president is clearly focused on security. We have seen some results, and it will get better.
“Dealing with the criminals who now terrorize parts of our country in a faceless manner poses challenges for our security apparatus, who were trained to deal with conventional opponents rather than these unconventional methods where soft targets are their victims. And government really, with all its best intentions, can’t be in every home and every corner of our society.”
When asked which ministerial post he may hold, Fahola said only President Buhari can tell.
“He nominated us, so he would have a very clear idea what role he wants each of us to play. I believe he must have had deep reflection on who will be in what position,” he said.
