OBA OF Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has lamented the suspension of a bill seeking special status for Lagos by the Senate, but expressed optimism that it would still become law in the nearest future. The monarch, who spoke yesterday during an interactive session in Lagos, said “the suspension of the bill sponsored by our amiable daughter and
wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, is unfortunate, but it is better and advisable to let these people know that this is not a matter of quarrel but a question of time. It will definitely happen.” Akiolu recalled the history of the agitation for special status for Lagos and urged promoters of the bill to go back to the drawing board and do their homework well before representing it for consideration and passage.
Also speaking on the issue, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode commended Senator Tinubu for her courage to push for the bill, while also lauding the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, for his magnanimity in allowing the bill to be presented on the floor of the Senate. He, however, expressed optimism that it would be reactivated and represented again, saying the success of the bill is in the overriding interest of Nigerians.
