The Speaker of the state House, Mudashiru Obasa, therefore, directed the Acting Clerk, Mr. Olalekan Onafeko to send the copy to Governor Sanwo-Olu for further action.

The two bills were passed after unanimous votes by the lawmakers at the sitting where they were read for the third time.

Immediately after their passage, Obasa commended his colleagues for their passion to see that the state continues grow.

“I Thank you all for this historic exercise,” Obasa said.
