NAOSRE President, Femi Oyewale, Congratulates Speaker Obasa @ 49
The President of the National Association of Online Security Reporters, NAOSRE, Comrade Femi Oyewale, has congratulated the Speaker of Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt Honourable Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa on his 49th birthday.
Oyewale, in a statement on Thursday in Lagos, describes the Lagos Speaker as a legislator with courage, forthrightness and diligence in providing exemplary and broadminded leadership for the Lagos Assembly.
He noted that the speaker’s leadership in the Assembly has steadily provided cohesive ambience for the executive to implement peoples oriented policies which have turned Lagos into a mega city.
In particular, Oyewale saluted the nationalistic inclinations of the Lagos Assembly Speaker who is always lending supports to NAOSRE in its national security objectives as well as his genuine concerns for Nigeria’s security situation.
“Obasa’s greatest strength lies in his ability to look beyond religious, ethnic and political stereotyping, embracing the reality of Nigeria as one entity,” Oyewale said.
Meanwhile, aides of the Speaker had also visited an orphanage, a foundation and a school which take care of indigent children and those with special needs.
The visit, which was also part of activities to mark the Speaker’s 49th birthday, had the aides distributing various gifts, including rice, cartons of noodles, clothes and other materials.
At the Compassionate Orphanage Homes in Igando, Prince Sunday Ladipo, Chief of Staff to the Speaker, said the aides decided to celebrate with the children because of Obasa’s love for youngsters, especially those in need.
“Speaker Obasa has a large heart towards people that are disadvantaged,” he said, adding that the aides would take back the requests of the home to the right quarters.
“This visit will be in our memories. Places like this are special to our principal,” Ladipo added, according to a statement by Eromosele Ebhomele, Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker.
Head of the Compassionate Orphanage Homes, Dr. Gabriel Oyediji, while thanking the group for their visit, urged the government to provide grants and assistance to homes because of the financial challenge they face taking care of children.
He said the home had raised over 200 children and given out some for adoption through the assistance of the government.
The home, he said, had also produced some graduates, some of whom are currently serving the nation.
He added that some of the grown children also enrolled into vocational institutions.
“Last year, we had our first wedding here and the family of the man was here from Osun.
“On behalf of the pupils and students, we send our love to him. We pray that his tenure would be the best,” Oyediji said as he prayed for the Speaker.
The aides also visited the Inclusive Unit For Children With Special Needs (inside the Dairy Farm Primary School), Agege and the Tunji Adebayo Foundation.
