La­gos As­sem­bly re­fuses to screen nom­i­nee for fail­ing to reg­is­ter as res­i­dent

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

Mem­bers of the La­gos State House of As­sem­bly yes­ter­day re­fused to screen a nom­i­nee of the state gover­nor, Mr Adisa Ipaye, for fail­ure to present his res­i­dent’s reg­is­tra­tion card.

Gov. Ba­batunde Fashola had sent the name of Ipaye and an­other nom­i­nee, Mr Olu­sola Adeo­sun, to the House for con­fir­ma­tion as mem­bers of the state Au­dit Ser­vice Com­mis­sion.

Ipaye, who ap­peared for the screen­ing, was asked for his res­i­dent’s reg­is­tra­tion card but said he had yet to reg­is­ter with the La­gos State Res­i­dents Reg­is­tra­tion Agency (LASRRA).

The nom­i­nee also failed to present his West African Se­nior School Cer­tifi­cate and told the law­mak­ers that he did not know it would be re­quired dur­ing the screen­ing.

He said that he had yet to col­lect the cer­tifi­cate from Odog­bolu Gram­mar School, which he at­tended from 1969 to 1973. The Deputy Speaker, Mr Taiwo Ko­la­wole, who presided over the ple­nary, said it was im­por­tant for res­i­dents to reg­is­ter with LASRRA.

Ko­la­wole also said it was very im­por­tant for any­one seek­ing po­lit­i­cal ap­point­ment in the coun­try to have the se­nior school cer­tifi­cate. (NAN)
