The Lagos State House of Assembly  is poised to ensure that the 2022 budget works in the interest of the residents of the State, Speaker Mudashiru Obasa has said.

Obasa said this on Thursday at the opening of a 3-day budget retreat held at the Orchid Hotels Lekki, Lagos with the theme: Addressing the service delivery priorities of Lagosians in the post-COVID era.

The Speaker, who was represented by the Deputy Speaker of the House, Hon. Wasiu Eshinlokun-Sanni, noted that Lagos had always been successful with budget performances because the State had always produced leaders who remain passionate about its development.

He said the retreat is meant to help participants understand government’s policy drive as well as work in collaboration with the executive arm to achieve it.

“It is basically to help us understand the policy direction of the state government and help us key into it for the growth and progress of the state and its people.

“It is also to help us understand the various provisions of the budget,” he said as he urged for an all-inclusive participation by those at the retreat.

While welcoming participants to the retreat, the Acting Clerk of the House, Mr. Olalekan Onafeko, thanked the participants for showing their individual zeal to make Lagos a great State.

Onafeko noted that whatever was discussed would be of importance to Lagos residents in terms of service delivery by the House of Assembly.

Some of the lawmakers who spoke about the retreat said they expected to gain more knowledge, rekindle their passion for progress of the State and continue to work with the other arms of government to sustain Lagos as an enviable State.

The resource person from Hybitel Limited who managed the training, Mrs. Oghogho Olabisi gave a hint on the deliverables of the retreat, she stressed that it will boost the capabilities of the Lawmakers to dispassionately engage the MDAS in their budget screening sessions.
