The Presidency has been urged by the Senate to remove Babatunde Fashola as the Minister of Power.

Fashola is currently the sole administrator of 3 ministries: Power, Works & Housing.

The Senate also urged the government to immediately incorporate Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) for the implementation of alternative energy projects, which included the Hydropower Projects, Solar Power Projects and the Wind Power Projects.

It equally urged the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing to use gas as source of energy for the Kaduna Project in accordance with its original concept.

Chairman, Committee on Power, Sen. Eyinnaya Abaribe, said the committee was already acting along its own mandate for oversight.

“We are working toward ensuring that these concerns that have been raised by this motion were looked into.

“The ministry of power today is combined with works and housing and the thrust of the ministry is to give quality direction.

“But, what we find is that the ministry continues to appropriate these jobs that are specifically meant to be done by agencies under it.

“We are taking measures to see whether we can bring back the ministry to what it ought to be,” Abaribe said.
