Tinubu’s Bill Seeking Special Status For Lagos Has Been Rejected By The Senate

Today, The Nigerian Senate voted against a bill seeking special status and federal grant for Lagos State.

The bill sponsored by Oluremi Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress Senator representing Lagos Central, was rejected on Wednesday after failing a voice vote called by Ike Ekweremadu.

Consequently, the bill, SB 112, failed to scale second reading for committee stage.

It sought one per cent of federally generated revenue as special grant for Lagos State in view of the former Nigeria capital’s socio-economic significance.

According to the official Twitter of the upper legislative chamber, the bill didn’t pass the second reading. It was rejected after failing a voice vote called by Ike Ekweremadu.
