I didn’t say N2bn was planted in budget – Fashola

Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, yesterday, said he never

told the Senate Committee on Housing that N2 billion was planted in his ministry’s 2017 budget for the housing sector.

Fashola, on assessment tour of federal roads in the South-South region, told reporters shortly after inspecting the Aba-Port Harcourt dual carriageway project, that he was surprised that the Senate Committee summoned his finance counterpart, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, over alleged planting of N2 billion in the ministry’s budget.

He said there was nothing like planting N2 billion in the budget, adding:”I said I do not have the details and that does not mean that something untidy happened.”
