Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has stated he was not overwhelmed running the affairs of three key ministries.

The minister stated this at the inaugural “Buharimeter Town Hall Meeting,’’ organised by the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD).

Fashola who was responding to questions from audience at the town hall meeting, said that the ministry was not bigger than Lagos State which he successfully governed for eight years.

He said “what is different is that I am working with a team I have not worked with before,’’ adding that he had to use a reasonable period of time to study the terrain.

Fashola said he had a capable hand as minister of state in the ministry, experienced permanent secretary and reliable members of staff.

Speaking on the score card of the ministry in the last one year, Fashola said that he adopted three stages of “incremental, steady and uninterrupted supply’’ in the power sector.

He said the energy mix to be adopted in realising the three would be unveiled in a week’s time at the meeting of National Council on Power.

He said the country attained 5,000 megawatts electricity generation in February before the height in attacks on gas pipelines and oil infrastructure in the Niger Delta.
