This came in a televised interview on Qadhayana- Al Ghad Al-Mushreq TV on Wednesday evening.

The minister ridiculed the number of government ministers who attended the official meetings in Aden, saying that they did not attend because they cannot offer anything. He explained that nothing was achieved in the '100 days limit' which the government gave itself. He said that the failures were because of serious levels of corruption.

He said that the Ministry of Water and Environment was working with a budget of not more than $1,500 per month. He said that it came to the point when the government premises of the ministry itself did not have running water. a situation which provoked a wave of sarcasm among citizens.
