The Speaker of the Lagos state House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, is one whose impact in the Lagos State Government can never be overemphasized considering his contribution to its development.
He has been very instrumental in the progress recorded in Lagos State, ensuring accountability on the part of the executive arm and total improvement in all sectors of Lagos economy as a whole.
Obasa started his political career in 1999 after contesting for the seat of a councilor at Agege Local Government under the Alliance for Democracy (AD) and won.
Not many know that the speaker, Obasa, is a lawyer, but according to information, never practiced after receiving a bachelor degree in Law from the prestigious Lagos State University (LASU) in 2006. It’s quite alarming that a man, who was at the top of his law goal after graduation, decided to drop it for the sake of politics, which is merely a service to humanity.
He became a member of the State Assembly in 2003 and had since then being re-elected by the millions of people in his constituency. At different terms, the speaker served as a member of numerous committees including Committee on Lands and Housing and Physical Planning. At different times, he served as Chairman of Committee on Rural Development, House Committee on Public Account for Local Government for six years and Chairman, House Committee on Budget and Economic Planning.
No doubt, Obasa’s re-election can only be attributed to the excellent character he has built over the years. From a councilor to a member of the house of assembly to the speaker of the house of assembly, this is nothing short of quality service to the people.
