By OKUNADE ADEKUNLE
Speaker of the Lagos State House Of Assembly, Rt. Hon Mudashiru Obasa, has tasked leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state to continue to maintain unity within the party, saying that it was the only way in which the party could sustain its leading roles and victories in elections.
Obasa, who said this while receiving the APC Chairmen of all the 20 Local Governments and 37 Local Council Development Areas at the Assembly complex in Lagos, On Tuesday, appealed to the politicians to always maintain cordial relationships, work in the interest of the party and avoid deviation as a result of the quest for personal gains.
He acknowledged that the party, its elected and appointed officials were aware of the sacrifice the chairmen had made over time for the success of the APC.
While promising that the House would work with the executive arm on the requests made by the party chairmen, Obasa reminded the visiting chieftains that Lagos State operates in line with legal and constitutional provisions which should also be looked at.
Earlier, speaking on behalf of the party chairmen, Prince Abiodun Abu, commended the Obasa for the audience and for constantly thinking of the best ways to help the state to progress.
Abu noted that the APC Chairmen would be happier if they are given more roles to play in the development of the state, which, they agreed, had become of enviable standards as a result of the activities of the House of Assembly as well as its unity with the executive arm of government.
Aside the party leaders, also at the meeting are; the Deputy Speaker , Hon. Wasiu Sanni-Eshinlokun, Deputy Majority Leader, Hon. Naheem Adams, Honourables Sylvester Ogunkelu, Kehinde Joseph and Sanni Okanlanwo.
