Why replace a man with 4 Years' experience with a man who does not understand the problem of the sector?
Babatunde Fashola said funds were a major setback, now that you've injected 600 Billion into the sector, why replace the man who understands the problems?

Fashola removed as Minister of Power was the right thing to do. Hopefully the next person has better results.. #BuhariCabinet

The power sector was already messed up, privatization scam & don't forget the $16B #ProbePowerNow is still here.
How do you build #SomethingOnNothing when the #OwnersOfNigeria already sold DISCOS to themselves while leaving the liability to Govt? Where should Fashola start from? pic.twitter.com/Xt9hgdRAiM

Remember Fashola? Remember "The Face of Lagos", "Lagos Professionals" and others who hounded Fashola out of the state on behalf of Ambode?
Payback is a bitch.
