The Speaker, Lagos State  House of Assembly, Mr Mudashiru Obasa, says the removal of two principal officers of the House and suspension of two others was a measure to take care of sanctity.

Obasa made the assertion on Wednesday evening in a press release in Lagos.

The speaker stated that the state meet’s motion was taken to instil self-discipline within the lawmakers, and in addition, a measure to make sure the legislature remained strengthened always.

He stated instilling self-discipline amongst members of the house was not tantamount to friction in any kind between him and members of the occasion.

“The legislature must remain strong at all times, especially in relation to Nigeria’s democracy, because it is often the hardest hit where issues in the democratic journey pop up.

“This is why during plenary on Monday, I made this proclamation that the parliament is the heartbeat of every democratic system.

“Its sanctity, integrity and positive reputation should be guided and protected, hence, discipline is key and where it is lacking, the hope of people fizzle,” he said.

Obasa insisted that there was no rift between him and Sen. Adebayo Oshinowo, whom he described as “a friend and mentor” and with whose support he had excelled in legislative activities.

The speaker said he was with Oshinowo on Tuesday, adding that they both drove in his convoy.

“I was the one that dropped  Oshinowo off on his way to Abuja yesterday. If there was a rift between us, will that happen?” he said.

Obasa insisted that the political empire of the National Leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in Lagos remained intact and strong.

According to him, Tinubu has gone through a lot in building the party in Lagos and Nigeria,  adding nobody in his right senses would do anything to be a clog in the wheel of the party’s progress.

“Tinubu stays every part to the continued success of the occasion he constructed from scratch and nurtured as much as this moment.

It’s unarguable that his resilience, love for democracy, an ardour to see his foot-soldiers develop and perception in self-discipline can’t be measured,” he added.

Obasa maintained that the occasion in Lagos state remained united.
