“Senator Goje should apologise to Assembly for utterances” -Lagos speaker Obasa

Published

on

The Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr Mudashiru Obasa, on Monday directed the Clerk, Mr Sanni Azeez, to write a protest letter to the Senate over a comment by Sen. Danjuma Goje.
This followed a motion moved by the Chairman, House Committee on Information and Strategy, Mr Tunde Braimoh, in respect of a statement credited to Goje (APC-Gombe Central) against the House.
Braimoh recalled a statement made by Goje, the Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, on July 5.
He said Goje had reportedly told the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, not to see the National Assembly as an institution he could control the way he controlled the Lagos Assembly.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Goje had replied Fashola over issues bothering on the 2017 budget.

Braimoh said that the matter was reported in the national newspapers edition of July 6, 2017.
The
senator derogatorily referred to the Lagos State House of Assembly by
saying that the National Assembly was not Lagos State House of Assembly.
“The statement is derogatory, uncomplimentary and it is an insult on the Assembly.
“The constitution does not give the senate power to superintend the state assembly.
“All
the newspapers reported the story and it is an uncomplimentary and
disparaging as well as an unparliamentary statement. The context in
which the statement was made was slanderous
,” he said.
According to him, the statement brings the House to public ridicule and it made people to feel that the House is a rubber stamp.
“Goje ought to be more civil with words with his status,’’ he said.
In his contributions, Mr Rotimi Olowo,
the Chairman, House Committee on Budget and Economic Planning, said
Lagos Assembly was an institution that people of other climes
appreciate.
Olowo said that if Goje has issues with Fashola, he should sort it out rather than insulting the assembly.
He, however, said that the house should write the Senate to reprimand the senator on the matter.
In his remarks, Mr Yinka Ogundimu, the Chairman, House Committee on Finance, described the statement as provocative.
Also, Mr Tobun Abiodun,
the Chairman, House Committee on Works and Infrastructure, said that
there were certain expectations from lawmakers based on ethics of the
office.
What Goje said is an insult on the leadership of this House. We demand an apology from Goje and the senate,” he said.
The House later adjourned the plenary session until Tuesday.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
