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.
Fashola said he had no intention to insult the lawmakers as it had been portrayed to the public.
The former Lagos State governor said the apology did not change his position that distortions in budgets could negatively affect the development of infrastructure in a country like Nigeria.
