Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the newly-inaugurated Minister of Interior, has declared his decision to formally assume the reins of the Ministry next Monday, admitting that he lacks understanding of how the ministry works as the little he knows about it was what he gleaned from the pages of newspapers.
Aregbesola who revealed this on Wednesday in Abuja during his first visit to the ministry told top officials of the ministry that apart from stories about the ministry on the pages of the national dailies, he had no understanding 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 informed the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Barr. Georgina Ehuriah to continue supervising affairs until next Monday when he would formally resume work.
