Assembly dismisses corruption allegations against Obasa

The Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday dismissed all allegations of corruption against the Speaker, Mr Mudashiru Obasa.

The House also passed a vote of confidence in him, describing the allegations as “frivolous and unfounded”.

The development confirmed a report on Monday that Obasa would be cleared at plenary.

Our correspondent gathered that the nine-man ad hoc committee of the House, led by Victor Akande (Ojo Constituency 1) submitted their report on the various allegations levelled against the Speaker.

An online news medium had reported that Obasa operated 64 bank accounts with the same Bank Verification Number.

He was also alleged to have spent N258m to print invitation cards for the inauguration of the 9th Assembly.

The Speaker also allegedly approved N80m as estacodes for some lawmakers to travel to Dubai, while his wife collected N10m monthly from the House.

The committee, in its report, said the allegations were deliberate misinformation.

“The Speaker did not have multiple accounts with Ecobank; the BVN ascribed to Wema Bank does not belong to him and the companies attributed to him in Wema Bank, are not correct.

“Out of the 14 accounts attributed to him for Zenith Bank, only six belong to him and only two are active.
