POLITICS: Lagos Special Grants Bill Thrown Out by the Nigerian Senate

We are still in the euphoria of drama that happened in the Nigerian upper chamber. The Nigerian senate today dismissed a bid for Special grants to be allocated to Lagos state as the nation's commercial capital.


The bill which was proposed by Senator Oluremi Tinubu (Bola Tinubu's wife) will entitle Lagos state to one percent of the Nation's revenue. The bill was rejected in a rowdy session. It was rejected after failing a voice vote called by Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.

Pundits are of the opinion that Lagos as a former federal capital territory deserves a special status for the purpose of revenue sharing in order to manage the huge challenges that was inherited from the relocation of the country's capital. But unfortunately, tribalism, hatred and outright jealousy will not allow the law makers take the right decision.

NOW, OVER TO YOU.
Lagos Special Status Bill: Which Side Are You ?
Are You for Tinubu or with the Majority?

Iconcur with tinubu but only if and only if cross rivers state will be granted such special status consideration too

@christian: that is, if Cross River asks for it

You are right too endy, time for whoever it is representing cross river state interest at the assembly to speak up

Lagos is the nation's hub commercial city and they can do very well without allocation if only the so called godfathers wish the state well.
