The Lagos State House of Assembly on Thursday lifted the suspension of two lawmakers, Moshood Oshun and Raheem Kazeem.

Speaker of the Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, made the announcement at the start of plenary on Thursday.

According to Obasa, the Governor's Advisory Council and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, called a meeting earlier in the week to intervene in the matter.  See Also Exclusive EXCLUSIVE: Tinubu, GAC Back Lagos Assembly Speaker, Obasa, Over Suspension Of Lawmakers, Corruption

Obasa through companies he owned and directly benefits from had been issuing contracts to himself, an act that is against the public service rule of Nigeria.

SaharaReporters had published a list of companies the Speaker had been using to award contracts to himself and launder public funds.

To avoid it being directly linked to him, Obasa did not use his name to register but used his father, wife and children as shareholders in the company.  See Also Corruption EXPOSED: Speaker Of Lagos Assembly, Obasa, Awards Contracts To Self Through Company Registered In Son's Name
