Lagos Lawmakers Invite Attorney-General Over Supreme Court Judgement On LGs

The lawmakers said there was a need for better understanding of the decision of the apex court in relation to some provisions in the Constitution of the country.

A seven-man panel of the Supreme Court had declared on Thursday that the 774 local government councils in the country should receive their funds directly from the Federal Government as well as manage such funds themselves being a tier of government.

The court further declared that allocations to local government councils run by caretaker committees were illegal.

Ruling after a voice vote by lawmakers at plenary on Thursday, the Speaker of the Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, ruled: “There is a need for us to seek clarification and understanding of this judgement. It will be good to invite the Attorney-General to brief us and give his understanding so that we do not run foul of the judgement.”

Meanwhile, the Lagos State House of Assembly has resolved to write a letter of commendation to the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, over the successful operation by men of the force that led to the elimination of nine kidnappers in the state recently.

A letter of commendation is also to be sent to the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Adegoke Mustapha Fayoade, for the efforts of the policemen which led to the fruitful operation.

Speaker Mudashiru Obasa, who presided over the plenary, said the police and men of the force who took part in the operation needed to be commended.

Dr. Obasa agreed with members of the House that letters be sent to Egbetokun and Fayoade further charging them not to relent in keeping the State safe for residents.

He stressed the need for stakeholders to fast-track considerations for the creation of state police to support the federal police system.

The Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Noheem Adams, had earlier recalled how the police launched the operation against some kidnappers in the Ladipo area of the state and eliminated nine of them.

According to him, there has been calm in the area since the operation was carried out.

Noheem added that the Ikorodu area of the state which hitherto had issues of kidnapping now enjoys relative peace.

In another development, the House of Assembly has applauded the First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, for seeking to encourage subsistence agriculture.

The Speaker said it was a beautiful idea to encourage Nigerians to have gardens in their houses arguing that this would help to create food sufficiency.

He recalled that schools had farms in the past adding that current situations call for a return to that period.

Grace Nation Int’l Raises The Alarm Over Plot To Tarnish Dr Chris Okafor By Ibukun Former Church Protocol

 

 

A sinister plot being hatched by Ibukun former Church protocol and his cohort whom we can easily describe as unscrupulous, ungrateful being who has benefited and enjoy the grace and anointing of Grace Nations founder Dr. Chris Okafor in the past. As it’s unprogressive for Ibukun to raise false alarm and fake allegations, attempting to malign the character and hardwork of an easygoing innocent man of God Dr. Chris Okafor, the founder of Grace Nations International Church whose headquarters situated at oshofisan street by Ereke but stop, Ojodu Berger area of Lagos State has been uncovered the evil perpetrator of one scrupulous identified as Ibukun who once enjoy the Grace and of the man of God as church former Protocol.

 

 

 

As for us at Grace Nations International Church turns twenty this year, and despite all odds, including previous challenges, Ibukun and his co-travellers who are bitter that the Church is progressing after leaving the Church unnoticed has been planing a desperate media campaign of blackmail and lies against Dr. Chris Okafor, Church leadership.

 

Grace Nation Int'l Raises The Alarm Over Plot To Tarnish Dr Chris Okafor By Ibukun Former Church Protocol

Obviously, and very uncalled for Ibukun and his cohort tried several routes ever since he left the church but have failed in the past, including unseen mischievously that have been thoroughly examined and dismissed by relevant church authorities.

As Grace Nations International Church planing some Programm ahead tagged “Not My Head, Not My Blood” also as the Church turns Twenty, this year, will certainly not be distracted and will remain focused on the forthcoming programmes amongst others.

It is therefore necessary for all church members both in Nigeria and diaspora, general public to disregard any statements or conferences geared towards this course and against the gentle man of God. Dr. Chris Okafor.

Lastly, Grace Nations International urges members to remain focused on the Church forthcoming Programms ahead in few months to come as we put Church activities on front burner in christian-dom and in the world at large. I advise Ibukun and his cohort to stop this campaign of columny otherwise he will face the wrath of the Almighty, be wise
