A 2006 Law graduate from the Lagos State University, Obasa’s entry into the political scene in 1999 as a councilor in Agege Local Government Area of Lagos State, brought out the visionary leadership quality in him, as well as his charitable spirit. These two traits endeared him to his constituents. The reward came when he presented himself to represent his constituency, Agege Constituency 1, in the Lagos State House of Assembly in 2003, as the constituents massively cast their votes for him. He did not disappoint his voters. His sterling performance in the business of law making is the only reason he has remained in the House since 2003. He became the Speaker of the Eighth Assembly on June 8, 2015 and was reelected by his colleagues to continue with his good works in the current Ninth Assembly.
