The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, says Nigerians seem to have been disappointed in the president administration because they are looking for results in the wrong place.
Fashola was answering a question in an interview with Channels Television on Thursday on his performances as a minister and governor.
He asked Nigerians to pay more attention to government at the local and state levels which, according to him, are directly responsible for provision of basic education, primary healthcare, waste management and water supply, among other essential amenities.
He stated: “The government that can transform and give us what we want quickly are the government closest to us – state and local government.
“Looking for the Federal Government or a magic President is why we seem to have been disappointed.
“We are looking for the results in the wrong place.
“Going forward in choosing leaders, we must make sure that we pay greater attention to who becomes our governor, local government chairmen.
“This requires more attention from the people than even who becomes president.
“Nigerians need to read the constitution.”
