SaharaReporters has uncovered yet another fraudulent act by Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, to siphon public funds.
According to a document seen by our correspondent on Thursday, the Assembly, on the orders of Obasa, approved N51,477,987 for himself and nine others to attend a leadership summit in Vienna, Austria.
Most of the amount approved by the Speaker for the contingent went into the payment of estacodes, which ran into several millions of naira from public funds for a four-day summit.
The document reads, “Approval for the release of the sum of N51,477,987 to enable RT. Hon Speaker, 6 Hon. members and three others to attend an international leadership, communication and entrepreneurship summit from 18 – 22 September 2018 in Vienna, Austria.”
