Lagos state house of assembly speaker, Mudashiru Obasa has been cleared of the corruption allegation levelled against him.
Victor Akande, the representative of Ojo constituency 1 and chairman of the nine-man fact-finding panel which probed Obasa, said all the allegations made against the speaker were “frivolous” during the presentation of his panel’s report on Monday June 8.
The panel which recommended that the clerk of the house Azeez Sanni should investigate how documents which led to the allegations against the speaker were leaked, maintained that Obasa followed due process in disbursements of funds.
“We also recommend that the activities of the house should be digitalised for proper record keeping and monitoring.
“It was then suggested by the committee that a vote of confidence should be passed in the speaker of the house.
“The speaker did not have multiple accounts with Ecobank, the BVN ascribed to Wema Bank does not belong to him and the companies attributed to him in Wema Bank is not correct.”
The panel’s clearance of Obasa was put to a voice vote by the house’s majority leader Sanai Agunbiade, and was unanimously adopted by the lawmakers.
