In a not so funny turn of events, there was a sudden blackout at the Eko Hotels in Lagos state while the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola was delivering a speech.
The event which took place on Tuesday 27th of September while Fashola was delivering a speech on the government’s agenda for electricity in Nigeria.
Fashola reportedly looked embarrassed as he waited for power to be restored. When it was finally restored, the minister smiled.
Eyewitness Dolapo Oni who shared the pictures on twitter, wrote: “Seriously you can’t make this stiff up….Fashola climbs up to talk and they take the light”
