The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, has promised to collaborate with the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

This was made known in a statement on Friday sent to Naija News.

The Speaker said this when Mrs. OK Popoola, State Director of the organisation, led other officials on a visit to the House.

Obasa said the House had always ensured accountability and transparency in all its dealings.

The speaker added that the need to tackle corruption had resulted in the passage of motions and resolutions.

He said the House recently passed a law against corruption adding that even though some people misinterpreted it, the lawmakers have a consciousness that fighting corruption should be the responsibility of everybody, not just the Federal Government.

Popoola earlier commended the lawmakers for their swift responses to their asset declaration obligations.

She also urged for collaboration between the House and the CCB.
