Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, has said that one of the legislative agenda of the 8th Lagos Assembly, will be the pursuit of a special status for Lagos State.
The Speaker stated this on Tuesday at plenary, after the Majority Leader, Sanai Agunbiade presented a report on the June 12 Anniversary lecture which took place in Lagos in commemoration of the annulment of the June 12 election acclaimed to have been the freest and fairest election and won by the late Chief M.K.O. Abiola.
Obasa promised that in doing this, the House of Assembly will work hand-in-hand with fellow lawmakers at the lower and upper chambers of the National Assembly to ensure the actualisation of the quest which is long overdue.
According to him, this is imperative because apart from being a former federal capital, Lagos still remains the economic and commercial nerve center of the country and the destination of so many Nigerians seeking better life.
“It is therefore important that the federal government takes a special interest in the state by according it a special status and making necessary provisions to cushion the pressure on infrastructure in the state,” the Speaker said.
