‘What I know about my ministry is only that which I read from Newspapers’ – Aregbesola Confesses


  • Newly-inaugurated Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has announced his decision to formally assume the reins of the Ministry next Monday, conceding that he lacks knowledge of how the ministry operates as the little he knows about it was what he gleaned from the pages of newspapers.

Aregbesola who disclosed this Wednesday in Abuja during his maiden visit to the ministry told top officials of the ministry that apart from stories about the ministry on the pages of the Newspapers, he had no idea of its policies and operations. “My relationship with the ministry is distant.

What I know about the ministry is what I read in the Newspapers,” Aregbesola confessed.

The former Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola thereafter directed the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Barr. Georgina Ehuriah to continue overseeing affairs until next Monday when he would formally resume work.
