Lagos Assembly in turmoil again, legislator walks out on Speaker Obasa

A cold war between the Lagos House of Assembly Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa and some aggrieved members seems not be abating as a lawmaker, Mr. Moshood Oshun representing Mainland 1, on Tuesday, walked out of the chamber during the plenary. 

Oshun was said to have walked out of the chamber after refusing to take his allocated seat instead of the one he was sitting on in the chamber.

While in the chamber, Oshun who bluntly refused the seat noted that, he said he had earlier complained that the seat allocated to him was not convenient.

But the Speaker told him: ‘If everyone was given the privilege to choose a particular seat, the chamber might look somehow”.

Thereafter, Obasa directed Oshun to comply with the rule of the House or walk out of the chamber. At this point, Oshun walked out of the chamber.

It will be recalled that Oshun was one of the two lawmakers suspended indefinitely in March while two of its principal officers, the Chief Whip, Rotimi Abiru, and the Deputy Majority Leader, Olumuyiwa Jimoh were demoted.

However, the suspension of the four lawmakers had been lifted after the intervention of the party hierarchy.

This Motion was moved by the Deputy Majority Leader, Mr. Noheem Adams representing Eti-Osa constituency 01 at the plenary invoking the Prevention Law, 2015 as a guide

Meanwhile, Lagos State House of Assembly has called on Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu to direct the Commissioner for Tourism, Arts, and Culture to work out modalities with the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice on how to remove all vestiges of the slave trade and colonialism superiority and rename them.
