Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday advised members of the Lagos State House of Assembly not to do anything that would bring down their rating in the country.

Obasanjo, who affirmed that the Lagos State House of Assembly has been a shining example to other state Houses of Assembly, urged the lawmakers of the eighth Assembly to keep up the pace and not be distracted.

The former President made these remarks when he made a surprise appearance at the Green Legacy Resort, Presidential Boulevard, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, Ogun State venue of the on-going three-day seminar organised by the Assembly in conjunction with Jurius Consult.

He commended the leadership of the House led by Speaker Mudashiru Obasa for fostering new grounds through training for the realisation of continued socio-economic growth and development in Lagos state.

He also commended the lawmakers for exhibiting high level of legislative excellence and ethical standard in the discharge of their legislative duties and oversight functions.
