Lagos Assembly not ‘fighting’ Sanwo-Olu — Speaker Obasa


The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, says lawmakers are not “fighting” Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu by rejecting some of his commissioner nominees.

This comes about a week after the state legislature rejected 17 of the 39 commissioner-nominees sent by the governor for screening.

The Speaker, who presided over the Monday plenary of the House, said no matter the threat by some persons, the Assembly won’t spill its discovery during the screening of the rejected commissioner-nominee.

He said no amount of intimidation would make the Assembly change its constitutional decision on the rejected nominees of the governor.

“We’ve been around together for long. In the last four years, we have been working together and I wonder why anytime we say ‘no’ to the request of the governor, it becomes something else.

“That is when the so-called elite conclude that we are fighting the governor. The House came up with so many resolutions which the executive did not carry out. Nobody has noticed that, nobody has said anything about that.

“So, I don’t know what informed the erroneous belief that the House is fighting the governor.”
