Speaker promises to pass Lagos budget as New Year gift
The Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr. Mudashiru Obasa, on Saturday, said the House would soon pass the 2024 Appropriation Bill into law as a New Year present to Lagosians.
This is as the Speaker thanked Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu “for not being like other governors who seal up the Assembly complex or who remove roofs of Assembly buildings.”
Obasa spoke on Saturday when Sanwo-Olu paid an unscheduled visit to the venue of the budget retreat for members of the Assembly in Abuja.
Describing the governor as a leader, brother and performer, Obasa noted that Sanwo-Olu had always supported the House in carrying out its functions, according to a statement signed by the Speaker’s Chief Press Secretary, Eromosele Ebhomele.
“He has always answered our calls at every point in time. Thank you for coming to check on us and for everything you have been doing.
“We also thank you for not being like other governors who seal up the Assembly complex or who remove roofs of Assembly buildings. That is why Lagos is great and the Lagos State House of Assembly is above the common standards of excellence.
“We are working on the 2024 budget and that is why we are here. I want to assure you that we will do our best to return the approved budget to you as soon as possible. It is going to be a New Year present to you and the people of Lagos,” the Speaker was quoted to have said.
