HON. OLUFEMI FAMAKINWA (AJEROMI IFELODUN 1)
I see Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa as a bridge builder. He respects everybody and highly diplomatic. You can’t superintend over the most vibrant and proactive house of assembly in Nigeria without being diplomatic in directing the affairs of the House. That he has been able to do very well in the last two and half years that he has been the speaker. I give him kudos for that.
I wish him a happy birthday. I wish him good health and prosperity. He will break more grounds.
HON. NURUDEEN SAKA – SOLAJA (IKORODU 2)
I wish the Rt Hon speaker good health, wealth. I want to appreciate him because he is a man that allows everybody to express his feelings. He sees every one of us as one big family. He does not pretend. When he is angry with you, he will tell you why he is angry with. Immediately you explain yourself to him that is the end of the whole thing. I love him for that. I want him to continue in that manner.
I wish him happy birthday, best of luck, good health and prosperity.
HON. OLARENWAJU OSHUN (LAGOS MAINLAND 2)
I have been working with the Rt. Hon. Speaker for about 10 years now and I can tell you for a fact that he is a wonderful man. He is a team player and a man of integrity. He does not say what he does not mean. I have seen another side of him when he became the speaker. He has shown that he had good leadership quality. His leadership skill is unparalleled. I have learnt so much from him as a speaker. I can now talk of Obasa Mudashiru as a member and as a speaker. As a member, he is a team player and hardworking person. As a speaker, he has run an inclusive government. He has made sure he carried everybody along. He does not unilaterally take any decision or impose his decision on members.
I wish him all the very best. Happy birthday, long life and prosperity. I wish him a very long life in good health. I wish his family the best so that they can enjoy him.

I wish almighty God to bless him immensely, bless his family and may his family also receive favour as he had been favouring us with his style of leadership . I wish him a resounding happy birthday.
