Former Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN), expressed his willingness to serve in the President Bola Tinubu-led administration without the need for a formal title.
He emphasized the importance of this administration in nurturing the next generation of leaders during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at Lagos State University, Ojo, where he delivered a keynote address at the institution’s fifth research and innovation fair.
Fashola, a trusted associate of Tinubu, who previously served as Lagos State Governor and as Tinubu’s Chief of Staff during his gubernatorial tenure, addressed his role in the current federal administration and the possibility of an appointment.
He stressed that he doesn’t require a formal title to contribute to the nation, highlighting that there are limited positions in government for a country as populous as Nigeria.
He underscored the importance of all citizens playing their part in nation-building, especially as they consider the needs of the next generation of leaders.
Fashola also expressed his hope for a more youthful presence in the administration, emphasizing the importance of bringing in outstanding, public-spirited individuals to fill important roles as the nation continues to evolve.
