The Speaker who spilled the beans when members of the Lagos State House of Assembly converged on the floor of the Assembly Complex to further shower encomium on Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and review activities organised to mark his 65th birthday said started climbing the leader of politics from a barber's shop in Agege.

Obasa who affirmed that there was need to put the record straight countered the Deputy Speaker Hon. Sanni Eshilokun who claimed that Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu started his political career from Lagos Island.

The Speaker said: “Asiwaju started his political career from a barber’s shop in Agege.” adding that the Senator has contributed immensely to his political career.

Obasa observed that the height of the birthday celebration was the colloquium at the Eko Hotel where dignitaries from all over country including present and past governors attested to the role played by Senator Tinubu in their lives.

Honourable Tunde Braimoh, the House Committee Chairman on Information and Strategy representing Kosofe Constituency II who raised the issue under matter of Urgent Public Importance stated that Senator Tinubu is a phenomenon and an enigma in this present generation.

Meanwhile, Tinubu has responded to report that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senate caucus accused him of trying to destroy the senate.
