(VIDEO)AUDACITY: Mudashiru Obasa Dares Governor Sanwo-Olu, Says "Those Who Live In Glass Houses Do Not Throw Stones".

Sanwo-Olu & Obasa.

The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa has taken a huge swipe on the Governor of the state, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu over some of the issues that arose from the screening out of 17 out of the 39 candidates sent to the house by the Governor for confirmation as Commissioners.

In the controversy that ensued, protests are said to be in view to show the grievance of the people against the House of Assembly for not confirm all the 39 individuals sent to her by the Governor, out of which were, former Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, that of Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, Education, Folashade Adefisayo, Women Affairs, Bolaji Dada and others.

Responding to some of the stories flying on Social Media about the controversy, Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa took a swipe on the Governor, telling him that those who live in glass houses are not supposed to throw stones, else, the glass of the building they live in would be shattered as he buttressed the point as to what led to some of the candidates he sent not being confirmed as Commissioners.

In the video which has now gone viral on Social Media, the speaker was seen showing some form of attitude and affront against Governor Sanwo-Olu with his approach and manner of speech.

According to Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, why Prof. Akin Abayomi who was in charge of the Ministry for Health and others were rejected wasn’t because of qualification alone, which isn’t enough, but that the party must be protected. The house according to the speaker will not expose what it discovered during the screening exercise.

But, the last may not have been heard from the tussle between the executive and legislature in Lagos, but few days from now, a few things are expected to start emanating from both parties, even as the Governor is yet to make an official statement on the development, especially how he hopes to overcome the impasse created by the animosity but feelers “Precious Eze’s Blog” got has it that members of the Governors Advisory Council, popularly called the GAC in Lagos (which is a group of seasoned politicians in the ruling APC who determines who gets what and doesn’t get what) may not be unconnected with what is going on right now and time will reveal these things.

Truly, it is expected that in a few days too, the Governor would be expected to send another sets of names to the house, hoping they would, this time, screen and confirm them, so he could swear them into the state executive council as Commissioners.
