JUST IN: Lagos Speaker denies report of contract manipulation




Oziegbe Okoeki


 


Speaker of Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa has denied allegations of awarding contracts to himself in the House of Assembly as stated in the report published by an online media on Saturday.


Obasa, who described the media outfit as “Liars” challenged the media outfit to make proof their assertion in public in order to unveil the truth.


He made this disclosure during plenary on Monday.


Obasa re-emphasized that there was no relationship between the De Kingrun Multipurpose Nigeria Limited and the Lagos State House of Assembly, noting that the media outfit should publish the contract date, location, amount and contractual agreement.


“Let me also join you to emphasize that what was published has nothing to do with me.


“I said it two weeks ago when the publication was out about De Kingrun, and I made my position known on that. But the fact remains that De Kingrun has no relationship with the Lagos State House of Assembly and I am challenging ‘Sahara Liars and Failures’ to publish if there is any.


At least, they have alleged and they must be able to prove by giving out the name of such contracts, the amount, the location, the date and the contractual agreement.


“So, with this, the public would be convinced that truly such allegation exists. But, as we speak, I am saying emphatically that there is no relationship between De Kingrun and Lagos State House of Assembly.”


Speaking earlier, The Clerk of the House, Mr. Azeez Sanni, who brought the matter to the House, stated that the House did not in any way award any contract to the companies mentioned in the report published by the media outfit.


“Mr Speaker! Let me seek your indulgence to make announcement of the publication on Sahara Reporters in which some comments were made regarding the House.


“As the Clerk of the House and Head of Administration, I want to say categorically to the public that this House has not had any business dealings with the mentioned companies,” Azeez stated.
