FORMER Works and Housing Minister, Babatunde Fashola has stated that he does not need to be in a position in President Bola Tinubu’s administration to serve.
Fashola spoke with NAN shortly before delivering the keynote presentation at the event’s fifth research and innovation expo, which took place yesterday in Lagos State University.
While stating that there aren’t enough parastatals in government for everyone, the former governor of Lagos State noted that Tinubu’s administration is producing a new generation of leaders.
“I do not need a title to serve: the president can only appoint at least one minister, for example, from each state in which he has done that,” Fashola said.
“There are just enough places in parastatals, they are doing that; we are estimated to be 200 million, so there are not enough offices to take everybody.
“All of us must play our roles as citizens, and a citizen does not need a title to serve. The biggest title you need is that of being a citizen and playing our role; we are also talking about the next generation.
“If some do not move on, where is the place for the next batch?
