Fresh facts have emerged that the Lagos State House of Assembly passed 10 bills into law between January and October this year.
LEADERSHIP checks showed that bills such as, ‘’Lagos State Cancer Research Institute Law, 2017; Lagos State College of Nursing (Schools of Nursing, Midwifery and Public Health Nursing) Law, 2017 and Yoruba Language Promotion and Preservation Law, 2017; Lagos State Cooperative College Law, 2017 and Lagos State Customary Court (Amendment) Law, 2017 and Lagos State Electric Sector Reform Law 2018 were passed into law during the period under Review.
Other Laws passed include, ‘’Lagos State Transport Sector Reform Law, 2018, Lagos State Teaching Service Commission Law, 2018; Lagos State Awards Scheme Law, 2018 and Lagos State Pension Reform (Amendment) Law, 2018.’’
In the month of November, penultimate Monday to be precise a Bill for a law to provide for Establishment of Lagos State Tourism Promotion Agency and for Connected Purposes was passed and the Clerk of the House was directed by the Speaker Rt Hon. Mudashiru Obasa to send the copy to Governor Mr.Akinwunmi Ambode for his assent.
Also a bill on Land Use Reform Charge 2018 was passed into law by the House and the Governor subsequently signed it into law.
This led to protests by Lagos State Chapter of Nigerian Bar Association and Joint Action Front (JAF) forcing Governor Ambode to slash some of the charges by 50 percent.
The Governor subsequently returned the bill to the State House of Assembly for amendment but during public hearing on the matter suffered members of Lagos State Chapter of Nigeria Bar Association led by its Chairman Mr. Adesina Ogulana and Joint Action Front, walked out of the public hearing on the premise that copy of the Law was not made available.
