Anyone Who Has Effectively Governed Lagos Will Succeed As Nigerian President, Says Obasa



Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. (Hon) Mudashiru Obasa, has said that anyone who succeeds in meeting expectations as governor of Lagos will certainly be successful as a president of Nigeria.

Obasa, who currently champions the mobilisation of the Southwest and other parts of the country in support of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, should the latter decide to contest the presidential election of 2023, spoke in Badagry when he commissioned a block of six classrooms.

The classrooms were built at the Ajara Comprehensive Senior High School by Hon. Setonji David, a lawmaker representing Badagry constituency 2 at the Lagos State House of Assembly.

“Let us support our own and be vocal with it; let us support Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. We will continue to support our leader and we must continue to support our Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, because we have no doubt that he will continue to deliver,” Obasa said while addressing the gathering.

The Speaker also called on government at all levels to consider prioritising education in the country.

Obasa noted that education is a light which must attract people.

He also commended Setonji adding that the latter’s gesture to the people of the area shows that he values education.

“We should learn from this and contribute our own quota to educational development, it doesn’t matter how little.

“Let us support our representatives. It is not his duty to do it, but he said that he went round and decided to do this to help the people of the constituency,” Obasa said.

The Speaker commended members of the House of Assembly and used the opportunity to enlighten guests at the event on the need to allow lawmakers serve and gain more experience on the job.

“All the lawmakers in the Lagos State House of Assembly are good representatives. Sending back your representative is an advantage.

“This is my fifth term in the Assembly and I became a Speaker in the fourth term. I want you to continue to support the people representing Badagry in the Lagos State House of Assembly,” he said.

Speaking earlier, Hon. Setonji David appreciated the people of the constituency for giving him the opportunity to serve.

He recalled how he donated various items to the schools in his constituency in 2018.
