The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt (Hon) Mudashiru Obasa, has advised members of the State’s Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB) not to relent as whatever they do presently would be a reference point for the next generation in the state and Nigeria.
Obasa, who gave the advice when the members of the board led by its Chairman, Hon. Wahab Alawiye-King paid him a courtesy visit on Thursday, eulogised them for the successes they recorded so far.
The Speaker further stated that LASUBEB remains very important to the Lawmakers and the state because of the role the organisation plays in the lives of pupils.
” The House of Assembly has always followed your activities and we rate you high”, said Obasa.
While informing them that the House earlier discussed the death of former Governor of the state, Alhaji Lateef Jakande with more emphasis on his achievements in the educational sector of the state, he urged the board members to continue to cooperate and succeed.
“Let me commend you for the job you have done so far. Thank you for the seriousness you have attached to your assignments and your desire to see to the development of the educational sector in terms of infrastructure.
“I have no doubt in my mind that the members of the team will perform, especially since the chairman of the board was the chairman of the House committee on education while he was here as a legislator.
“This, I think, has given him the leverage to see the nitty-gritty of education in the state and how he can take advantage of the situation to excel,” said Obasa.
He advised the members of the board to be their best in their assignments, admonishing them not to focus on the benefits of the job since what is more important is the opportunity to serve and write their names in gold.
“Everything, no matter how long, must come to an end. And when it happens, it is our children and those we leave behind that would speak about our works”, said Obasa.
While praying for the team to be successful, he noted that the board has started well.
Meanwhile, Alawiye-King had told the Speaker that the visit was to further secure the blessing and advice of the Speaker as they carry on with the tasks handed them by the state government.
