The Nigerian Senate has urged President Muhammadu Buhari, to swiftly appoint another Minister, to take charge of the ministry of power.

The Senate said Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola is overwhelmed by functions of other Ministries portfolios, hence the Ministry of Power is suffering for it.

The Senate resolution follows a motion by Senator Mustapha Bukar, on the need for the Ministry of Power under Fashola, to limit its role to general policy making, rather than choking and preventing agencies like the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC from performing their legal functions.
