2022 Budget Will Work In Interest Of Lagosians, Says Lagos Assembly


Members of the Lagos State House of Assembly said that they would ensure that the 2022 budget works in the interest of the residents.

This was made known when the Speaker of the House, Rt (Hon) Mudashiru Obasa gave his keynote address on Thursday at the Opening of a 3-day budget retreat with the theme: “Addressing The Service Delivery Priorities Of Lagosians In The Post-COVID era; Issues, Opportunities And Options”.

It would be recalled that the state Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu presented the Budget for the Y2022 titled: “Budget of Consolidation” on 24th November, 2021 which was committed to the Joint Committees on Economic Planning & Budget and Finance for further legislative scrutiny.

Obasa, who was represented by the Deputy Speaker, Hon. Wasiu Eshinlokuni-Sanni, noted that Lagos had always been successful with budget performances because the state had always produced leaders who remain passionate about its development.

He said the retreat is meant to help participants understand government’s policy drive as well as work in collaboration with the executive arm to achieve it.

“It is basically to help us understand the policy direction of the state government and help us key into it for the growth and progress of the state and its people.

“It is also to help us understand the various provisions of the budget,” he said as he urged for an all-inclusive participation by those at the retreat.

While welcoming participants to the retreat, the Acting Clerk of the House, Mr. Olalekan Onafeko, thanked participants for showing their individual zeal to make Lagos a great state.

Onafeko noted that whatever was discussed would be of importance to Lagos residents in terms of service delivery by the House of Assembly.

Speaking on the expected outcome of the retreat, Mrs. Oghogho Olabisi of Hybitel Limited, stated that the retreat will support the lawmakers to dispassionately engage the MDAS in their defense sessions.
