The two Bills were passed following unanimous votes by the lawmakers after scaling through the constituionally required Third Reading.

Immediately after their 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.
