Budget row: Fashola apologies to reps panel

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, on Friday, apologised to members of the National Assembly over his comments, following his post-budget row with members of the House of Representatives.

“If my statements caused any discontentment; that was not my intention. I certainly apologise for it (sic),” he told a panel of the House of Representatives in Abuja.
