Exclusion Of The Minority Leadership In Lagos State Is Tyrannical In Democracy …Hon. Saheed Mosadoluwa



The founder of Ibile Peaceful Assembly, Hon. Saheed  Mosadoluwa (Mr-Ibile) has described the exclusion of the minority leadership at Lagos State House of Assembly as tyrannical and  undemocratic.

He, however, made this assertion while reacting to the recent Lagos State House of Assembly on the exclusion of the offices of Minority Leader and Minority Whip in the House, saying the two positions are no longer necessary.

“I considered the assertion of the Chairman, House Committee on

Information, Strategy, Publicity and Security, Mr Tunde Braimoh of

Lagos State Assembly as a troubling conundrum”.

“We are not saying majority rule is not necessary for expressing the

popular will and the basis for establishing their deceptive  and progressive’s campaign but minority is bound to disagree on any anti-

people ideal of the majority”.

However, the Lagos State House Assembly should understand that the consensus cannot be the basis for making political or legislative decisions because minority rule is antithetical to democracy.

His words, “is this Lagos State House of Assembly or fascist organization?, I have not heard of any state assembly without minority leaders; it will surely pave way for executive arm recklessness and rascality. APC members should not abuse its powers to oppress the minority voters that sent some of these traitors to that chamber to represent their communities”.

Mosadoluwa noted that PDP members in their constituents were not consulted before the six members proceeded to decamp to APC, as these members were fascinated with what those in the APC camp are benefiting which compelled them to decamp from PDP to APC.

“I would advise that someone should stand as a minority leader to represent the will of the minorities’ votes. We should stop being economical with the truth.

The Lagos State House of Assembly on Tuesday said the offices of Minority Leader and Minority Whip in the House are no longer necessary. Obasa, his loyalists and APC leaders should understand the dangers of tyranny in legislature which should also be condemned by Lagosians”.

Furthermore, it is of great importance at LSHA not only to guard

Lagosians against oppression and deceptive progressives’ campaigners,

there is need for minority leader in that assembly to guard the rules

of the assembly against the injustice of those who decide to tell us

that the rules are now superfluous and whims.

It is time to compel Buraimoh to resign as the chairman, Lagos

Assembly House Committee on Information and Strategies since his

appointment as the chairman is the creation of the assembly and that means the office that gave him the

privilege to send deceptive information to the public is also based on the whims.

The minority’s rights must be protected no matter how alienated a

minority is from the majority members of Lagos State Assembly;

otherwise, the majority’s rights may lose its meaning.

Mosadoluwa, in his final note, urged that Ibile Peaceful Assembly will surely protest the heinous decision of the majority of the house of Lagos Assembly from becoming a vehicle for the “tyranny of the APC government. “We will resist imposed regimentation of thought and values as the voice of the minority must be heard”, he added.
