The Lagos State House of Assembly has passed a vote of confidence on Speaker Mudashiru Obasa saving him from being removed as the lead of the house.
While expressing their opinion on the decision, the Lawmakers said Obasa had demonstrated exemplary leadership so far so good.
Reacting to the news that Obasa is about to be impeached, the Lawmakers averred:
“Chief Obasa had been in the eye of the storm following ongoing investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) into his financial dealings in the house. However, we never tried to impeach the speaker as it has been flying around on social media, describing the report as false.” – Hon. Kehinde Joseph said.
“It is clear that Hon Jimoh AbdulWahab is going about searching for information about Mr.Speaker mudashiru obasa , he should be indefinitely suspended while my good brother Hon. Olanrewaju Oshun should be investigated on this false information” – Hon. Sokunle.
“I was shocked to see the story on “trip to Istanbul alone”, i was on that trip, Hon. Olumuyiwa Jimoh was on the trip as well, Hon. Mojeed Fatai and Hon. Egberongbe also. It is clear that someone is doing his best to give this House a bad name” – Hon.Fatai Oluwa.
“We do not impeach on Social Media, we are legislators representing Lagosians, if we need to impeach we will be bold about it. There is no need for an impeachment and the rumour should be disregarded – Hon.Tobun.
“Some people have tried to unsettle the peace and integrity of this noble House, i think we should invoke some sanctions to maintain it’s sanctity” – Hon. @DesmondElliot_
Gistongist gathered that the leadership of the House might fish out those giving out false information to detractors for purposes of blackmail.
