Obasa Assures Sanwo-Olu of Support on Infrastructure, Transport Sector Developments

Published

on

The Lagos State House of Assembly will continue to support Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in the area of infrastructural and transport sector developments in the state, Speaker Mudashiru Obasa has said.

Dr. Obasa gave the assurance during the commissioning of the Oyingbo Bridge on Sunday.

The Speaker, represented by the Chairman of the House Committee on Transport, Hon. Adewale Adedeji Temitope OON, noted: “We have the transport sector reform law which we did. We have the Lagos State Transport Masterplan which is in place and now, we are here again today having the THEME+ agenda.”

He commended the governor for living up to the expectations of the people of the state and for fulfilling his electioneering campaign promises.

“Today we are happy because we are standing at this historic event where Mr. Governor has said that the needs and responsibilities of the people shall continue to be his priority and he has given us the opportunity. Today, we are opening a bus terminal and we are commissioning a bridge.

“Your political scorecard has said it all. Your promises to the people as a politician and as the executive governor are coming to pass. I want to continue to tell you that as long as you continue to do what is right for the people, the Lagos House of Assembly will continue to stand with and by you.

“Just last week, we commissioned the Yaba Bridge and today, we are here commissioning the Oyingbo Bridge. I know we still have the Mushin and Ikeja bridges. We have train stations that have been completed and yet to be commissioned,” Dr. Obasa said.

In the same vein, Hon. Adewale said when he was appointed chairman of the committee on transport, he was worried about the transportation challenges in the state, adding that he got more worried when the governor made transportation a priority in his THEME+ agenda.

“Mr. Governor, history will be kind to you. On behalf of the good people of Lagos State, I promise that Mr. Speaker will continue to stand by you for every need on infrastructure development and the transport sector,” he said.

The lawmaker used the opportunity to appeal to the governor for the construction of a bridge in Ifako-Ijaiye to ease traffic bottlenecks in the area.

“Mr. Governor, I’m jealous because I understand that there are supposed to be seven bridges and I know that four have been constructed. I also understand that one of the local governments that is supposed to benefit from the bridges is Ifako-Ijaiye where I represent and that is the Iju/Fagba Bridge.

“Compensations have been paid but we have not seen any bridge. Mr. Governor, I would like to talk to you about that,” Adewale said.

  • urges patriotism for national prosperity

As Nigerian Muslims celebrate the Eid-el-Fitr with their counterparts across the world, Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, says he joins other faithful in their steadfast belief that Almighty Allah will listen to their supplications and meet their needs at this time.

Dr. Obasa’s prayer came in his congratulatory message to Muslims for having the divine privilege from Allah to partake in the Ramadan.

According to Obasa, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Eromosele Ebhomele, the Eid-el-Fitr is not just a time to eat and be merry, but a day dedicated for thanksgiving to God for the strength and passion He has given the Muslim faithful.

“It is a day to reflect on the blessings and opportunities that have been granted by Allah just as it is a period to engage in acts of charity and love to one another.

“As emphasised in the Holy Book, Muslims are advised to give at this period and beyond. They are urged to share love and be compassionate while having the consciousness of Allah’s mercy upon us all.

“I congratulate Muslim faithful both in Lagos, Nigeria and the world for the successful conclusion of the Ramadan while praying that Allah hearkens to all our supplications throughout the period with the faith that He will continue to bless our state and country,” the Speaker said.

Obasa urged the citizens to mark the festival rededicating their lives to God and doubling their patriotism to the country for national prosperity.

“We all must continue to work hard as we build a peaceful, united and prosperous Nigeria under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu while upholding the lessons that Ramadan brings.

“As Nigerians, regardless of our religious beliefs, we have a country that we aspire to see. We all have to make the country achieve that greatness by being more patriotic and working with the government.

“In the same vein, it has been an upward progression for Lagos. The result of the effective collaboration among the arms of the government is very obvious.

“At the House of Assembly, our pro-people direction has resulted in legislation, motions and resolutions that have brought happiness to the residents of our state. We promise to continue to build on our successes.

“On behalf of my family, colleagues at the House, the management and staff of the Assembly, I wish our Muslim brothers and sisters a beautiful celebration,” Dr. Obasa said.
