The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, claimed on Tuesday the government has paid N300 billion for various projects since the budget was passed, saying the ministry received N102 billion from the fund.

Fashola, who spoke at a Town Hall/Policy Dialogue for Good Governance organised by the Alumni Association of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (AANI), assured Nigerians that despite the paucity of fund, the administration is determined to meet the yearnings of the people.
The meeting, which was also attended by the ministers of Agriculture and Rural Development, Finance, Information and Culture, Budget and National Planning and Foreign Affairs, was the sixth in the series of the town hall meetings.
The ministers took time to brief the audience on what the Federal Government was doing in their various ministries.
Traditional rulers, members of the Diplomatic Corps and Civil Society Organisations, among others, attended the meeting.
Fashola said he inherited 206 uncompleted road projects across the country, nothing that contractors had abandoned the projects due to non- payments.
The minister, however, said the trend had changed and the contractors mobilized back to site.
“We are mindful that it is a tough time, but life will get back to normal. We are not a repository of knowledge, so we are willing to hear from you and make amends,’’ he stated.
