Lagos Speaker, Obasa opens up on spending N80m on lawmakers’ wives trip to Dubai

June 8, 2020

 209     180

The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, has explained how N80m was spent on a trip to Dubai, UAE for wives of lawmakers in the state.

Obasa appeared before the House panel of inquiry on corruption, to defend allegations leveled against him on Saturday, Giftalworld reports.

He insisted that the allegations were untrue and the handiwork of his enemies.

According to him, the wives of 20 lawmakers flew to Dubai for the event and were given N4 million each as estacodes.

“We gave N4m to each of the participants for air tickets, hotels, feedings and local travel.

“Air tickets to Dubai alone cost about N2m. Some of these allegations were raised for a crusade to get the Speaker out of office.

“The House of Assembly is above the common standard of excellence and we have to train people, and this comes at a cost,” he said.
