The Lagos State House of Assembly will soon make laws that will protect the interest of the indigenous people of the state.
This was made known by speaker, Mudashiru Obasa in his acceptance speech after his re-election as the leader of the house.
Obasa said lawmakers will go to any length in protecting the state indigenes even if it means reversing existing law, adding that laws passed by the assembly will now be translated into the Yoruba language.
“Lagos is a Yoruba land as against the assertions of some people that it is a no man’s land.
Therefore, part of our legislative agenda is to ensure the translation of laws passed by this House to the Yoruba Language. We also aim at achieving our collective goals of creating a robust legislative framework that protects the interest of our people.
Going forward in this wise, we are going to employ all legislative instruments for the support of the indigenes of Lagos. There would be laws and resolutions in the areas of economy and commerce, property and titles,” Obasa said
The Labour Party governorship candidate in Lagos state for the 2023 election, Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour has condemned the comments made by Rt. Hon Mudasiru Obasa, Speaker of the state House of Assembly that the house will make laws to protect the property right of indigenes.
He warned that any enacted law that seeks to reverse property rights in favour of the indigenous people of Lagos state at the expense of other residents is divisive and not in the economic interest of Lagos.
Rhodes Vivour stated this in a statement posted on his official Twitter handle on Thursday.
