OrderPaperToday – The Lagos State House of Assembly has summoned the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice of the state, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem to explain conflicting letters on 15 bills inherited from the last assembly.
Speaker of the assembly, Mr. Modashiru Obasa said the commissioner must meet with principal officers sequel to a letter from the latter asking the assembly to stop legislative action on the bills.
 Mr. Obasa said that it was important to have a meeting with the Attorney General since he was new on the seat.
Majority Leader, Mr. Sanai Agunbiade said that he had earlier received a letter from the Commissioner through the Clerk of the assembly calling on the lawmakers to resume work on the bills and that another letter was received asking for suspension of work.
“The call was unnecessary because there is room for the executive to make amendments during public hearings that would be called by the House on the Bills. We cannot stop work on the bills as against the request of the Attorney General. So I will suggest that we should continue working on them,” he said.
The majority leader’s position was supported by many lawmakers including Mr. Bisi Yusuf, who said that the suggestion of the Attorney General was wrong, adding that the lawmakers should be allowed to do their job.
