A bill sponsored by Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress Senator representing Lagos Central and the wife of the National leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, seeking special grant for Lagos State has been rejected by the Nigerian senate.

The bill was rejected on Wednesday after failing a voice vote called by Ike Ekweremadu.

Consequently, the bill, SB 112, failed to scale second reading for committee stage.

It sought one per cent of federally generated revenue as special grant for Lagos State in view of the former Nigeria capital’s socio-economic significance.
Details soon
