The Lagos State House of Assembly on Thursday passed the state’s Value Added Tax (VAT).

 

The House also passed the bill that prohibits open cattle grazing in the state.

 

The two bills were passed after unanimous votes by the lawmakers at the sitting where they were read the third time.

 

‌Immediately after their passage, Speaker Obasa commended his colleagues for their passion to see that the state continues to grow and directed that  a clean copy  should be transmitted  to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for assent.

 

 

“I Thank you all for this historic exercise,” Obasa said.

 

 

The passage comes a day after the lawmakers held separate public hearings on the bills with stakeholders who declared their support for them.
