PUBLIC NOTICE : Stage Se For Lagos House Of Assembly Public Hearing On Amendment Of Lagos L and Use Charge................ALL INVITED
All weeks of intense preparations, all is now finally set for the much anticipated Lagos State House of Assembly Public Hearing on a bill to review the state Land Use Charge Law, 2018, slated tor tomorrow, Tuesday 27th March 2018
Billed to take place at the Lateef Jakande Auditorium, Lagos HOUSE OF Assembly , Aluasa in Ikeja, the event will be hosted by RT Hon Mudashirru Obasa, speaker of the Lagos HOUSE OF Assembly. The hearing day was fixed following the Second Reading of the bill by the lawmakers on the floor of the House, last week in a law that had generated strong reactions from residents, after its passage by the Assembly, and subsequent assent by Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode.
The Speaker of the House, Mr Mudashiru Obasa, in announcing the committee membership, had said there was a need to address all the issues raised by the people concerning the law.
The Speaker named Mr Bayo Oshinowo, Chairman, House Committee on Lands, as the Chairman of the Ad hoc Committee. Obasa gave the committee two weeks to report back to the House with all shades of opinions from Lagos residents.
Other members of the Committee included: Hon. Yinka Ogundimu, Chairman, House Committee on Finance and Hon (Mrs) Funmilayo Tejuosho, Chairman, House Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Petitions.
The rest are: Hon Tunde Braimoh, Chairman, House Committee on Information, Strategy and Security, Hon Jude Idimogu (APC-Oshodi-Isolo II) and Hon Olusola Sokunle (APC-Oshodi-Isolo I).
IN a chat with WORLD LEADERS last night, Clerk of the House, A.A.SANI appealed to people to participate and contribute in the process of law making during public hearing to make their own contributions.
“We want to involve general public, so tell them through your world platform to freely attend this was actually done when this land use charge was in the process before passage and sending to the governor for assent. We invited the public but we didn’t hear much from them concerning all these concerns. If only they had responded at that time, probably we would have done what would be acceptable to all” he said.
IT would be recalled that following public outcry, the state government, after initially hiking the charge by as much as 400 per cent in some cases, responded by lowering the rates.
The hike had followed an amendment of the state Land Use Charge Law by the state assembly, which consolidated several taxes.
The state government, after lowering the rates, had also promised to return the enabling law to the Lagos Assembly for another review
