SaharaReporters has laid hands on a document revealing how Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, approved the sum of N258m for the printing of invitation cards for the inauguration of lawmakers two months after the event had been held.
The document explicitly stated that the fund was processed on the orders of Obasa for the inauguration of the Ninth Assembly with 34 returning members and six new members, which was held on June 7, 2019.
The document, which was used for the approval and release of the funds, was fraudulently processed two month after the event had taken place.
The document was titled “Celebrations and Ceremonies” and was dated August 7, 2019.
It reads, “Being payment approved for the printing of invitation cards during the inauguration of the 9th Assembly as per Hon. Speaker’s approval vide LSHA/LM/C/276.”
