Obasa who represents Agege constituency, became the first lawmaker in Lagos State to be elected for six consecutive terms.

OYO NEWS understands that Obasa was first elected into the House in 2003, while he was elected Speaker of the House in 2015.

Obasa was reelected to serve for the sixth term, in the 2023 general elections.

However, his return as the Speaker of the Lagos State House, is being threatened by a member of the House, Hon. Tobun.

According to investigations, Tobun informed his colleagues including the incumbent Speaker of his intention to run during the induction ceremony for newly elected members which took place at Marriott Hotel, GRA, Ikeja last week.

“While many were surprised, some of the lawmakers weren’t. Speculations that Tobun will run for the number one lawmaker seat in the state has been on for long before the man declared his intention last week.”

“Tobun himself is not a small fry in the House. The incoming 10th Assembly will be his fourth consecutive term in the House having made his debut in 2011.”
