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 would go to any length in protecting the state indigenes even if it meant reversing existing law, adding that laws passed by the assembly would 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.
Obasa’s comment is coming in the wake of the recent controversy on who the real owners of the Lagos state are.
Recall that in the build-up to the February and March elections in Lagos, there were divisive statements made on and off social concerning Lagos politics.
