His tenure has got off with a close-door session with the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Louis Edozien, and directors on the way forward in tackling the enormous task ahead.

“We are here to work with you, in solving problems on ground as quickly as possible, we want to know if some of those problems are man-made or systemic.

"We want information on what has been done, what remained to be done, and what are the future plans, we want to continue from there,” said the former Lagos State Governor.

Fashola said his thoughts were on how to bring together processes and activities of all the ministries now put under his supervision for effective service delivery.

He assured the Ministry’s leadership of his willingness to learn from them as they were career people who had been on the job for a long time.

Fashola said was is also interested in how best to harness the available human resource assets in the ministry, so also the physical asset, as all these information will assist us as we hit the ground running. 

“We need to do more so as to regain lost time,” said Fashola.

He assumes the portfolio amid the country experiencing scant supplies of power.
