Controversial former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has described the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola SAN, as the “Prince of Darkness”.

Fani-Kayode gave the appellation while reacting to a comment purportedly made by the minister.

According to The Punch, Fashola said it was no longer the Federal Government’s problem to worry about lack of electricity since the bulk of the power supply chain had been privatised.

The minister reportedly made the declaration at the Nextier Power Dialogue on Wednesday, December 12.

He said, “There are problems without a doubt and we must deal with them. But let me remind you, all of the assets that the Ministry of Power used to control for power have been sold by the last administration before I came. And so if you don’t have power, it is not the government’s problem. Let us be honest.

“The people who are operating the power sector, generation and distribution are now privately owned companies. I am here because I am concerned. If your telephone is not working, it is not the minister of communication that you go to. Let us be very clear.”

Quoting Fashola, Fani-Kayode, who took to his verified Twitter handle on Thursday, said:

“If you don’t have power it is not the Federal Goverment’s problem” – Tunde Fashola, Minister of Power, Works and Housing.

The Prince of Darkness has spoken.
