JUST IN: Nigeria House of Assembly speaks on passing Sharia Law, in an alleged deal to get Northern support for Bola Tinubu

The Lagos House of Assembly on Wednesday dismissed reports that it secretly passed the Muslim Sharia Law in the state, in an alleged deal to get Northern support for Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate in respect of the 2023 election.

This rebuttal was contained in a statement by Setonji David, the Chairman of the Lagos State House of Assembly Committee on Information, Security and Strategy, obtained by zolexreporters

“No informed person should believe this lies against the Assembly that is above the common standard of excellence. The news is far from reality.

“Some people are just mischievous. Spreading all sorts of untrue stuff. Is it possible to pass a law under cover? The process of law-making is universal and very open. You cannot pass a law without subjecting it to public hearing in Lagos State.

“We urged the residents of the state and Nigerians as a whole to take the peddlers of this unfounded report as illiterate, uninformed, and uneducated people who needed to be schooled about the law-making process,” the statement read.
