Lagos - Two members of the Lagos State House of Assembly said on Sunday that the resignation of the former Minister of Power, Prof Barth Nnaji, was appropriate.
They said that his action was a lesson to other office holders, adding that it was rare for public officers to resign from positions of authority in Nigeria.
Mr Avoseh Suru (ACN - Badagry II) described Nnaji as a man of honour who had done his best to reposition the power sector.
``Nnaji’s resignation might not be unconnected with the privatisation process but it may be on the allegation that two companies belong to him.
``If he is actually guilty of that offence, he has done the right thing by resigning from office,” he said.
Suru, who is the House Committee Chairman on Health, said that everybody should see the minister as somebody who could bail Nigeria out of the problem in the power sector.
Also speaking, Mr Olumuyiwa Jimoh (ACN-Apapa II) commended the Nnaji's courage.
The lawmaker said that it was possible for state governments to generate power, as being demonstrated by the Lagos State Government.
``We have started Independent Power Project at the State House, Marina; before you know it, we will be on our own,” he said.
