Agunbiade represents Ikorodu Contituency 01 in the House while Solaja is the representative of Ikorodu Constituency 02 in the House.
In his condolence message on Sunday signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Musbau Razak, the Lagos Assembly Speaker described he deaths of the patriachs of Agunbiade and Solaja families as coming at a time when their words of wisdom, experience and prayers are needed most.

“However, we must take solace in the fact that the two men lived a fulfilled live as exemplified by the offsprings that survived them particularly our own Honourables Sanai Agunbiade and Nurideen Saka-Solaja,” he said.
While commiserating with the people of Ikorodu and Imota communities in Ikorodu Local Government, Rt. Hon. Obasa prayed to God to give the two communities, particularly the Agunbiade and Solaja families the grace and fortitude to bear the huge loss.
