Lagos Assembly Tackles Bode George Over ‘Rubber Stamp’ Comment

Lagos HouseThe attack by Chief Bode George on members of the Lagos State House of Assembly has been faulted by the Assembly’s spokesperson, Mr. Segun Olulade.

George, a former national Vice-Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West Zone, was quoted in the media as describing the Lagos State House of Assembly as a mere rubber stamp.

The PDP leader was reported to have also said that the state Assembly was answerable only to the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, who is a former governor of Lagos State.

But Olulade, who is Chairman, Committee on Information and Publicity of the LSHA, said the comment credited to George was a reflection of the PDP leader’s “die-hard habit of uttering unguided and un-statesman-like statements”.

The lawmaker representing Epe Constituency II in the House of Assembly said the statement was insulting to the integrity of the people of Lagos, who elected the current set of the state lawmakers.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Wednesday, the lawmaker said that, “Unlike the secretive party which Bode George represents, the APC is open and the leadership of the party, including those serving in the executive and legislative capacities, is open to people they represent.

“Bode George’s unguided statement is insulting the integrity of Lagosians who have elected their own representatives into the House of Assembly.

“Lagos Assembly is not a house of commotion, so we don’t sit to issue threats and fight the executive before we can carry out our legislative tasks. Lagosians are blessed with one of the best governors anyone can think of in Nigeria today, hence, we carry out our tasks in checking the executive maturely and amicably, not by shouting, issuing threats and causing commotion as expected by Bode George”, Olulade said.
