Afe Babalola revealed why he turned down ministerial appointments because he can’t work with civil servants.
According to founder of Afe Babalola University, he can’t work with the present crop of workers in the civil service.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria who admitted that Nigeria is a difficult country, added that accepting the ministerial appointments could have created an enmity between him and civil servants.
Babalola said “Well, I turned ministerial appointments down for two reasons. One, I cannot work with the present type of civil servants in this country. The civil servants are the problems in this country. None of them can work the way I work.
“I will create instant enmity, if I accepted to be a minister. The second reason is that my clients are so many. They protested and felt I would be disappointing them if I accepted to be a minister.”
