Federal University of Oke-Ogun Bill: Aseyin and others speak at the Public Hearing

Today, Aseyin of Iseyin land, Oba Ganiyu Jimoh, Barr. Hammed Raji SAN, Okere of Saki among other stakeholders in Oke-Ogun made it to the Nigerian Senate Public Hearing on the establishment of Federal University of Agriculture, Oke-Ogun.

You will recall that the Sponsor of the Bill, Senator Fatai Buhari who represents Oyo North Senatorial District at the National Assembly made it known in the past that the Bill he started sponsoring from the 8th Assembly only scaled through the 1st reading but unable to be finally passed before the last Assembly came to an end. This neccessitated his unrelenting effort to pick the bill again in order to ensure speedy passage at the current 9th Assembly.

Currently, the Bill for the Establishment of Federal University of agriculture, Oke-Ogun is now at the Public Hearing stage where stakeholders in Oke-Ogun are making their contributions and inputs to aide the smooth passage of the Bill.

The Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and Tetfund earlier today held public hearing in respect of 3 number of bills targeted to improve Nigeria education sector. Among which is Distinguished Senator Buhari’s bill that seeks to establish Federal University of Agriculture and Technology, Oke Ogun.

Public Hearing is an important part of legislative process which affords the concerned public and the stakeholders the opportunity to make input that will shapen the decision of the parliament in legislative process and the gathering witnessed a large turn-out of the representatives from Oke-Ogun ranging from the Traditional Rulers, Professionals, colleagues from House of Representatives, educationists and others who have come to convince the committee on why it is not negotiable to establish the university of learning.

Senator Fatai Buhari in his remark, calls the attention of all stakeholders to ensure that the Bill is finally passed to law because Oke-Ogun blessed with both natural and human resources does not have any federal presence and a region that contributes immensely to the agricultural revolution we have been clamouring for cannot be left out in having its own University of Agriculture for rapid economic development.
