The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, in an apparent swipe at former president Olusegun Obasanjo, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has no time to write letters.
Mr Fashola said this on Saturday during the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential rally in Lagos.
Obasanjo has severally written letters of criticisms against the Buhari administration. The former president has also endorsed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“Mr President, I have spoken to our people extensively in Yoruba before you arrived.
“I have delivered your message and the message of your government and our party to them – that ‘Next Level’ means jobs, from Mambilla, to the road projects, to the factories, roads from Apapa all the way to Oworonshoki…
“I have told them that you don’t have time to write letters; you get the job done. I welcome you, especially because this is my own village. This is my own ‘Daura’ in Lagos. This is Surulere. This is the first city, and this is where, historically, the first dollar was devalued four years ago,” Fashola said.
