Babajide Sanwo-Olu

The Lagos State House of Assembly has passed the Value Added Tax (VAT) bill and the one prohibiting open cattle grazing in the state.

On Thursday, Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, directed the acting Clerk, Olalekan Onafeko, to transmit a clean copy to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for assent.

The two bills were passed after unanimous votes by the lawmakers at the sitting after they were read the third time.

Obasa commended his colleagues for their passion to see that the state continues to grow.

“I thank you all for this historic exercise,” he said.

The House held separate public hearings on the bills on Wednesday with stakeholders expressing support.
