Members of the Lagos State House of Assembly resumed plenary session yesterday with a resolution to write letter of commendation all governors on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC),President Muhammadu Bihari , the Conference of Speakers , the National Assembly for their collective efforts that resulted in the Victory of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu during the recent party’s convention.
While thanking all Presidential aspirants who stepped down for Tinubu ,the House also resolved to send a congratulatory message to Tinubu, who the lawmakers called a ‘golden fish’,
Further the members of the House took turns to eulogise the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, who was said to have commenced the mobilisation for Tinubu long before the latter officially declared his intention.
Recall that Speaker Obasa, since 2020, had visited many states of Nigeria canvassing for support for the emergence of Tinubu as APC flag bearer.
Obasa said the outcome of the primary election was worth celebrating, especially in relation to the number of people who supported and played various roles to ensure Tinubu’s victory.
According to him, the action of the Northern governors has further deepened democracy and unity.
Ahead of the convention, the APC governors in the North had resolved to support a Southern aspirant. They also made their decision public.
“That singular action is proof and testimony that Nigeria’s democracy has come to stay and that Nigeria will continue to exist as one. It goes beyond giving Asiwaju support and that in togetherness, we can move this country forward.
“The emergence of Asiwaju gives hope that there are better days ahead where we would have an egalitarian society.We have absolute confidence that just like he did it before, he can do it again,” the Speaker said as he recalled the various achievements recorded by
Tinubu as governor of Lagos state.
He tasked stakeholders and party leaders to intensify their support for Tinubu ahead of the general election.
One of the lawmakers , Abdulsubur Olayiwola, described Tinubu as a political warlord just as he argued that the presidential candidate’s Abeokuta declaration helped his victory.
Also he noted that Speaker Obasa started reaching out to Nigerians from other parts of the country even before it became public knowledge that Tinubu would run for the position,other contributors are
Hon. Tobun Abiodun, Hon. Adedamola Richard Kasunmu, the Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Sanai Agunbiade and Gbolahan Yishawu who said Tinubu reaped what he had sowed for many years .
