Why we couldn’t make significant achievement in 2021 – legislative arm

Hon. Rasheed Obasa

The legislative arm of Oshodi-Isolo LG has attributed its failure to record significant achievement in 2021 to irregular sittings as a result of unstable activities.

Speaking to ECHONEWS as they embarked on recess for Christmas and New Year break, the council leader, Hon. Rasheed Obasa said they were unable to stabilise the House since they were sworn in five months ago.

According to him, the House needs to be set aright since they have a new system with new members.

It was gathered that the House has not been able to sit on any bill since it was inaugurated on July 27.

However, the council leader said they have passed about 10 resolutions while looking forward to passing some bills into bye-laws next year.

“Though much has not been done in the house but, there are preparations to move Oshodi-Isolo LGA forward come year 2022.”

He promised that the House will embark on tangible bye-laws that will be of benefit to the community members to improve the economy such as enacting a law to promote the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of Oshodi-Isolo LGA for more developmental projects.

He further promised to make life more meaningful for the community members by passing more bye-laws that will have a positive impact on lives.

Obasa assured that there will be great achievements next year as the House will embark on serious work immediately it resumes on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.
