For sponsoring a bill for the establishment of a Federal University of Agriculture and Technology, Oke Ogun and Federal Polytechnic, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, the leadership of Oke-ogun Council of Elders (OCE) has commended Sen. AbdulFatai Buhari.
Buhari represents Oyo North Senatorial District which comprise ten local government areas in Oke ogun and three local government areas in Ogbomoso.
According to the elders, Buhari, has proved to be a true representative of his people by moving the bill for the establishment.
A statement by its spokesman,Mr Jare Ajayi, the elders said that enacting the law and implementing it promptly will be of immense benefit to Oke ogun,Oyo State and Nigeria in general.
They called on the federal government to positively consider the proposal for the establishment of the University.
“As clearly stated by our Senator, there is no federal institution of any type in Oke ogun. Establishing a University in the area will therefore be a way of redressing an agelong neglect of Oke ogun.”
“That the proposed University is going to specialize in agriculture makes it more fitting because of the agrarian nature of Oke ogun and the adeptness of the people in this occupation. We commend Senator Abdulfatai Buhari for this well thought-out initiative and urge the National Assembly as a whole to pass the bill without further delay” the statement read.
