The legislative arm of Oshodi-Isolo Local Government on Monday summoned the residents of the community to seek their input to the five proposed bills before they were passed into bye laws.
They included the bill on environmental sanitation; bill on child right’s protection/adaptation; bills on prohibition of trading around perimeter fence of public primary schools; bill on corporate/mobile loading and offloading of haulage and bill on revenue items.
Speaking on the move, the Council Leader, Hon. Rasheed Obasa, said the legislature sought the opinion of the residents on the bills in line with the tenet of democracy.”Making Oshodi -Isolo Local Government better via the instrument of lawmaking remains the core function of the legislators of the council.
“In achieving this, many rigours processes have been passed through towards making Oshodi work for all through functional laws enacted at the grassroots. “In fulfilling this core mandate in tandem with the ethos of participatory democracy is the reason why the residents of Oshodi-Isolo Local Government are invited to the public hearing on some of the bills to seek their opinions before the bills are passed into law.
“Laws are meant to govern the behaviour of the people for civility and the people the law is said to be created for must have input to avoid any form of draconian or authoritarian tendencies.”
