“I want to urge the people of Lagos State to pay their taxes so that the government and the Governor can succeed.

“Also, we must all know that insecurity is not the job of the police alone, it is the work of everyone of us,” he said.

Obasa however, thanked the people of Agege for their constant support for him and the party at the polls over years.

He stressed that his success at the polls since 1999 could be traced to the people of Agege Local Government area who he said had been supportive of him over the years.

“We will repair your roads, give you schools and health facilities in Agege area of the state.

“We have started development projects all over the state and we will ensure development in all areas of the state through road construction, healthcare and provision of infrastructure in our schools.

“We appreciate the people and leaders of Agege for their support for the party and for the Speaker.

“There are no leaders without the people. Your leaders are good leaders because of your support for them. I am happy that you have this kind of leaders. Agege is up there, we will not deprive you of all that you deserve,” he stated.

In his speech, the Lagos State APC Chairman, Alhaji Tunde Balogun said that it was a day of joy for the APC as they rejoiced with the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly.

Also speaking, Hon. Samuel Babatunde Adejare, representing Agege at the Federal House of Representatives, thanked the Governor for his presence, adding that everybody was happy that he graced the occasion.

Adejare, who represented the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the event, revealed that Tinubu was absent at the event due to other pressing matters.

In his speech, Hon. Yinka Ogudimu, representing Agege Constituency 2, said that the victory was for everyone, while promising that the members of the state house of assembly would do what they ought to do.
