In a solemn display of empathy and leadership, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, accompanied by his cabinet, visited the Agege residence of the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa, to offer condolences for the loss of Alhaji Suleimon Atanda Obasa.

The elder Obasa, a respected figure and father of the Speaker, passed away at the age of 83. His passing came as a sudden shock to the community, as he had been in good health just days prior.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, representing the government and citizens of Lagos State, expressed heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved family, acknowledging the profound impact of the loss and the enduring legacy left by the Speaker’s father.”

“No matter how old one’s parents are, one can never want them to go. So one can imagine the shock that the incident came with, but we have the belief that it was the appointed time.

“This is something that all of us owe life. We only pray that we live long and leave good legacies.

“It is clear that having produced you, your dad actually left a good legacy. So the onus is now on you to carry on with his good works as a community leader and one that brought together the entire family,” the governor said.

Sanwo-Olu also commended the Speaker for his effective leadership of the Assembly and his service to Lagos. He prayed that the Speaker will continue to have the capacity to lead the legislative arm as he had always done.

In his response, Dr. Obasa described the House as the Governor’s support base adding that the legislative arm is poised to ensure the success of the current administration.

Obasa said the visit by the Governor and his cabinet is a confirmation of the love, cooperation, unity and friendship that radiate in government.

“The truth is that I hold you in high esteem always. And because we have the same father in Asiwaju Tinubu, we have always worked for the same goal which is service to the people of Lagos.

“I always say there is no amount of money one can acquire that would sustain one better than what one has done in one’s community,” the Speaker said noting that Agege has experienced massive progress because of the Governor’s collaboration and intervention.

“Like I continue to say, we should continue to be particular about the people, not ourselves because there will come a time when we will leave office and people will make reference to what we have done.

“Mr. Governor, you’re my brother anytime and day. Whatever we achieve in the House of Assembly is because you support us. We are there to work for your success and that is why as part of our religion, we must pray for you, the deputy governor and every other person before ourselves. That’s the only way one can grow,” Obasa added.
