Sharia Law Story Emanated from Pit of Hell, Says Lagos Assembly


The Lagos State House of Assembly, has said the trending story that it passed a law on Sharia to please the Muslim north, could only have come from the pit of hell.

Debunking the news, which trended on the social media, the Assembly in a statement by the Chairman, House Committee on Information, Security and Strategy, Hon Setonji David, the House described the report as “a lie from the pit of hell.”

Continuing, it said, “Alleged secret passage of Sharia law by Lagos Assembly, a lie from the pit of hell,” adding that the process of lawmaking was open, but that the purveyors of the story were mischievous.

“The attention of the Lagos State House of Assembly, has been drawn to a malicious and unfounded report making the rounds on social media, that the assembly has secretly passed a sharia law in a deal to get Northern support for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC Presidential Candidates.

“We would not have dignified the writer of this hate speech but in order to set the record straight, this is a mere figment of the imagination of the writer and a total lie from the pit of hell. No informed person should believe this lies against the Assembly that is above the common standard of excellence. The news is far from the reality.

“Some people are just mischievous. Spreading all sorts of untrue stuff. Is it possible to pass a law under cover? The process of law making is universal and very open. You cannot pass a law without subjecting it to public hearing in Lagos State.

“We urge the residents of the state and Nigerians as a whole to take the peddlers of this unfounded report as illiterate, uninformed, and uneducated people, who needed to be schooled about lawmaking process.

“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a fast selling products across the country and does not need any law from the state to further endear him to all Nigerians and by the Special Grace of God, the Jagaban would emerge winner of the 2023 presidential election to the shame of the purveyors of this hate news.”
