The Lagos State House of Assembly has passed the state’s Value Added Tax (VAT) bill and the anti-open grazing bill.
The two bills were passed after unanimous votes by the lawmakers at the sitting where they were read the third time on Thursday.
Mudashiru Obasa, Speaker of the assembly, directed the acting Clerk of the House, Olalekan Onafeko, to transmit a clean copy of the bills to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for assent.
Immediately after the bills’ passage, Speaker Obasa commended his colleagues for their passion to see that the state continues to grow.
“I thank you all for this historic exercise,” Obasa said.
The House had on Monday passed both bills for second reading and subsequently held separate public hearings on the bills on Wednesday, with stakeholders expressing support.
