The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa has denied any disagreement with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Obasa was speaking one week after the Lagos State House of Assembly rejected 17 of the 39 commissioner-nominees presented to them by the state governor.

Obasa made this clarification while presiding over the plenary session on Monday.

He said no matter the threat by some persons, the Assembly will not reveal what it discovered during the screening of the rejected commissioner-nominees.

The Speaker also insisted he is trying to protect his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“So, I am trying to protect my party and I would continue to do that but we are not going to sacrifice service to our people in the name of technocrats, no.

“If anybody is interested to know why we have taken such decision, he should approach the House.

“The House, as a body, restrains itself from exposing what was discovered during the screening exercise and we would not be forced to spill it,” Obasa said.
