Telescope reports that the leaders, under the aegis of the Agege Leadership Council, unveiled the forms at the residence of the Agege APC Apex leader, Safari Adaranijo on Saturday, April 30.
They said they contributed to raise the funds for the purchase of the forms.
Adaranijo said the effort is meant to urge Obasa to “speak again” as speaker of the House and to express their love, support and appreciation to him for playing positive roles in the development and progress of Agege.

Adaranijo said: “We, the leaders of APC in Agege and the entire members of the party in Agege, decided to get these forms for our Rt. Hon. Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, because he’s a performer and we are lucky to have him.
“Talking about the bridge, roads in Agege, Obasa is excellent, that’s partly why we, the leaders of APC, decided to get these forms for him.
“As speaker, he became chairman of the Conference of Speakers in Nigeria; when we look at legislative duties in Nigeria today, Lagos is number one.”
The APC fixed the cost of nomination and expression of interest forms for states’ houses of assembly at N2 million.
