Mudashiru-ObasaSpeaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has given assurance of the state government’s plans to adequately protect lives and property of dwellers in riverine communities.
The Speaker gave the assurance during a condolence visit to the Osolu of Irewe, Oba Abideen Durosimi, in the Ojo Local Government Area of the state, over the death of six schoolchildren, who were drowned in a boat accident in the area on July 2, 2015.
In a statement issued on Sunday, Obasa, who was represented by the Deputy Chief Whip of the Assembly, Omotayo Oduntan, added that the state government would not relent in providing basic amenities to its citizenry.
“We members of the Lagos State House of Assembly came to condole with you and the residents over the recent drowning of six schoolchildren.
“We are also here to present to you 60 life jackets and cash to the families of the deceased on behalf of the Speaker”, Oduntan said.
The speaker, however, appealed to the traditional ruler to ensure that boat operators in the area insisted on the use of life jackets.
Earlier, Oba Durosimi appealed to the state government to build boarding schools in the community to reduce the risk of children going to school daily through water transport.
