The state of Lagos will be implementing laws to protect its indigenes,” announced Mudashiru Obasa, the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, on Tuesday.

Obasa, who secured his third consecutive term as the speaker of the 10th Assembly, revealed that the legislative agenda would encompass various sectors such as the economy, commerce, property, titles, and the reversal of policies “that are reversible to safeguard the interests of the indigenes.”

While addressing the controversies surrounding the recently concluded 2023 elections, including claims of non-indigenes attempting to take control of the state, Obasa emphasized that Lagos is a Yoruba land.

He stated, “Lagos is Yoruba land, contrary to the assertions of certain individuals who view it as a no man’s land.”

“As part of our legislative agenda, we aim to ensure the translation of laws passed by this House into the Yoruba language,” Obasa continued. “Our collective objective is to establish a robust legislative framework that safeguards the interests of our people.” Moving forward, Obasa pledged to employ all legislative instruments to support the indigenes of Lagos.

He affirmed, “There will be laws and resolutions in the areas of economy and commerce, property and titles, and we will reverse any policies that can be reversed to protect the interests of the indigenes.”

These statements were made during his acceptance speech after being unanimously elected as the speaker of the assembly.
