House Of Reps Summons Fashola


The House Of Representatives have resolved to summon the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola.

The minister has being summoned to respond to comments he made regarding the signing of the 2017 budget.

Fashola had slammed the National Assembly for inserting projects without the knowledge of his ministry in the 2017 Appropriation Act.

He also accused the National Assembly of slashing N21 billion off the N31 billion proposed for the Lagos–Ibadan Expressway.

The minister said it was unfair to the executive arm of government for the inclusion of such projects after public hearings on the budget and defence of the fiscal estimates by ministries.

Coming under the Matters of Urgent Public Importance, the House unanimously agreed that the Minister had breached their individual privileges as well as that of the institution of the Legislature.
