A social commentator, Mr. Segun AromokunOla and others have likened Lagos East, Sen. Adebayo Osinowo and the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa camps dirty fight as that of a pot calling kettle black, saying both are guilty of the same offence.
Over the weeks whole lot of office abuse, misdemeanor and financial recklessness allegations has been hovering round the embattled speaker neck with the help of neck relieve pad to mitigate pains effects as public joined to demand for thorough investigation. Which the highly revered senator supporters reported to be behind the speaker pains and stress. Consequently, Obasa camps who strongly believed that the Senator also benefited directly or indirectly from alleged embezzlement before moving to the senate are not leaving stone unturned as they gradually pulling the rug of his feet over power wields and his business interest are becoming the daily target.
His supporters among the lawmakers, who principal officers were earlier suspended, demoted before they were given access to the state Assembly.
However, Mr. Segun AromokunOla in his summary statement described the duo as “The pot calling the kettle black”. His words:
“It is a case of thieves tracing the footprint of another on the rock. Majority of the Legislators are guilty of one form of misdemeanour or the other. Now let’s delve into some of the issues. I am not a fan of Obasa or Oshinowo because I have not seen the quality leadership provided by the duo.
“One is a Libya returnee while the other is from Italy. I believe that Pepperito over reached his bounds by maintaining an office in the Lagos House of Assembly complex and probably meddling in the affairs of the parliament after his election as a senator. One would have thought that after spending 20 years in the assembly and left for Abuja Pepperito will let them be in Lagos.
“Again Pepperito and Yaro lured all the local government chairmen in Lagos East Senatorial District on a purported jamboree solidarity visit to Pepperito in Abuja at the public expense.

“Look at all the atrocities in Kosofe Constituency.. putting anybody who can boot lick in position with impunity and no regard to loyal party members. Is it the issue of thuggery we want to talk about both in Agege and Kosofe Constituencies, the 2 Legislators cannot be said to be innocent. People know Obasa and Oshinowo thugs in Iyana Ipaja and Ikosi Ketu. The two of them have overstayed their welcome in the public office. They have held office for over 20 years and other people be allowed to come on board. With greatest respect to the duo they are not the best Agege and Kosofe could offer.
“Obasa cannot be said to be brilliant like past speakers of Lagos assembly like Olorunnimbe Mamora or Joko Pelumi likewise Oshinowo cannot match the brilliance of Senators Ogunlewe or Gbenga Ashafa. The public is tired of stories from the two of them, I don’t think we are interested in Obasa took his mistress to Dubai or Pepperito is busy with illegal dredging in Lekki or Majidun.
The important thing for now is delivery of robust dividend of democracy to the wonderful people of Lagos. Why is it now they just wake up from their slumber to realise the other is doing wrong?

I think dredging has been stopped during Fashola days but now at Itowolo, Majidun to mention a few are still going on.This is dangerous to the community .What can we do,rumours says it bn done by people in power. if flood should come State will now use her power to quit this inhabitants.
It’s rather foolish for a sword to seek to destroyed its house under the illusion that it’s destroying the shield . Those who seek to destroyed to move up should contemplate destruction at the post of thier success. If the probe is actually targeted at an individual then, too bad.
What is the position of federal law about dredging & hope the investigative panel raised by Lagos state House of Assembly will not clash with the federal legislation.
