Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker of the Lagos state house of Assembly has stated that the political empire of former governor of the state, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu remains unshaken, inspite of recent events.
Speaking in a statement on Wednesday, he dismissed speculation of a rift between himself and Bayo Oshinowo, member representing Lagos East at the national assembly.

“I was the one that dropped Senator Oshinowo off on his way to Abuja yesterday. If there was a rift between us, will that happen?”
He stated that Tinubu remained everything to the continued success of the party he built from scratch and nurtured up to this moment.
“It is unarguable that his resilience, love for democracy, passion to see his foot-soldiers grow and belief in discipline cannot be measured.
“The legislature must remain strong at all times, especially in relation to Nigeria’s democracy because it is often the hardest hit where issues in the democratic journey pop up.
“This is why during plenary on Monday, March 9, I made this proclamation: ‘The parliament is a heartbeat of every democratic system, its sanctity, integrity and positive reputation should be guided and protected, hence discipline is a key and where it’s lacking, the hope of the people fizzle”, Obasa added.
