Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, after the passage of the bill, ordered the acting clerk, Olalekan Onafeko to convey a copy of the bill to the Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his final approval.
The bills were passed unanimously by the lawmakers after they were read three times.
Honourable Obasa lauded the lawmakers for their commitment to the development of the state.
“I thank you all for this historic exercise,” the Speaker said.
