Lawan: National Assembly will deliver on its promises


SENATE President Ahmad Lawan has said he and his colleagues in the Ninth National Assembly will remain focused to fulfill their promises to Nigerians.

Lawan spoke on Monday when a delegation of leaders and traditional rulers from Oke-Ogun in Oyo State visited him in his office in Abuja.

The delegation, led by the Aseyin of Iseyin, Dr. Abdul-Ganiy Adekunle Salau, and facilitated by Senator Abdulfatai Buhari, was attending a public hearing on a Bill for the establishment of a Federal University of Technology in Oke-Ogun.

Spokesman for the delegation, Ahmed Raji, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), said the visit was meant to thank the Senate President for supporting the Bill.

Responding to Raji’s remarks, Lawan said: “We here in the National Assembly, especially this Assembly, have promised Nigeria that this Ninth National Assembly will work for Nigerians, and that is our direction. That is our trajectory.

“We are not looking sideways or back and forth. We know what we are going to make Nigeria better. In doing that, we will not allow ourselves to be distracted.   “We believe that every part of this country must have a tertiary educational institution and it is only fair that Oke-Ogun zone has one.”

Raji stressed that out of about 30 Federal institutions in Oyo State, none was cited in Oke-Ogun zone, which he said has about 60 per cent of the landmass and 10 of the 33 local governments in the state.  Other indigenes in the delegation included former Communications Minister Adebayo Shittu and Okere of Shaki, Oba Khalid Olabisi Oyeniyi.
