Lagos Assembly debunks secret enactment of Sharia Law to attract support for Tinubu
The leadership of the Lagos State House of Assembly has denied reports of secret enactment of Sharia law in Lagos State, saying that the report is malicious and unfounded. Chairman of the House Committee on Information, Security and Strategy, Setonji David, in statement emphasized that reports making the rounds on social media that the State Assembly has secretly passed a sharia law in a mobilization plot to attract northern support for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), are false.
The committee chairman said the reports is a mere figment of the writer’s imagination and far from the reality.
The lawmaker stated that the House of Assembly would not pass a law without subjecting it to public hearing in the state, saying that the peddlers of the report are illiterate and uninformed people who needed to be schooled about law making process.
He stated that Tinubu does not need any law from Lagos State legislature to further endear him to all Nigerians.
