Obasa advocates local government-based lockdown for Lagos State

Lagos Assembly passes vote of confidence in Speaker Obasa

Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon Mudasiru Obasa, has subtly criticised the lockdown strategy being adopted in Lagos State.

According to him, although Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the hEALTH commissioner, Prof. Akin Abayomi, are doing well, the lockdown has not been effective.

He thus called for the devolution of structure to the local councils in the state,

He tweeted: “I commend the Commissioner for Health @ProfAkinAbayomi, through him to the Executive Governor of Lagos @jidesanwoolu for your unrelenting effort on #COVID19.

“But I must say that the lockdown is not quite effective, can we domesticate the lockdown by involving the Local government?

“Just as we have the incident command at the State level, can we replicate the same at those Local Government with high rising number of #COVID19.

“If the lockdown will continue, it is better we move with all strategies.”
