The Lagos State House of Assembly has commenced live-streaming of its plenary sessions.
The record breaking feat commenced on Monday as members of the House resumed plenary after a month’s recess.
The Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Sanai Agunbiade, who announced the development Tuesday, stated that the commencement of the live streaming would afford Nigerians all over “the world to watch the sittings of the Assembly live from the comfort of their homes, offices and even while travelling”.
According to Agunbiade, the need to make the legislative proceedings in the Lagos State House of Assembly conform with acceptable modern standard all over the world was responsible for the introduction of the live streaming of its plenary sessions.
He said: “The leadership of the House under the able leadership of Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa is committed to taking the House to greater heights through innovations and adequate infrastructure development.
“Our e-legislative processes have thus been completed with the commencement of the live streaming of plenary sessions of the House.
“Already, the Twitter handle, Instagram and Facebook are fully functioning, while the website is on 24/7.”
According to the Majority Leader, interested members of the public can watch the live streaming of the House plenary sessions by logging on to: www.lagosstatehouseofassembly.gov.ng/life.
With this achievement, the Lagos State House of Assembly thus becomes the first ever legislative House in the country to have its plenary sessions live-streamed to the outside world.
Not only that, the House is second only to the South African parliament in Africa to have its plenary live-streamed.
