Mudashiru Obasa, on his Golden jubilee celebration on behalf of my wife, Ibijoke, the Lagos State Government, leaders and members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and the good people of Lagos State.
“You (Obasa) are a loyal and committed member of the progressive family in Lagos State, especially in Agege Local Government area where you served passionately as Councilor on the platform of Alliance for Democracy (AD) between 1999 and 2002 before being elected into the Lagos State House of Assembly in 2003 and re-elected four consecutive times to become the longest serving lawmaker in Lagos State House of Assembly.
“You are an outstanding politician worthy of emulation and commendation because of the role you have been playing as leader of the Lagos State House of Assembly. As Speaker, you have discharged your duties with utmost professionalism, commitment, competence, and dedication for a cordial relationship between the legislature and executive for the progress of our dear Lagos State.
