Lagos - Olumuyiwa Jimoh, the Deputy Majority Leader, Lagos State House of Assembly, on Wednesday, said that the leadership of the 8th Assembly would surpass the achievements of the 7th Assembly.
Jimoh (APC-Apapa 2) disclosed this in an interview in Lagos.
The lawmaker expressed confidence in the ability of the Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, to move the House and the state forward.
"I am part of the leaders of the Assembly; we are going to stand on the shoulders of the leadership of the previous Assembly so that we can see beyond what they have done.
"Obviously, Adeyemi Ikuforiji (former Speaker) is a brother, he is a leader, but I am assuring you that this generation of leaders would fit into his shoes," he said.
The lawmaker said that there was nothing special about having opposition members in the House, which in the 7th Assembly, comprised only APC members.
