The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has said that the ninth Assembly will not be distracted from discharging its duties.
Senator Lawan stated this on Monday when a delegation of leaders and traditional rulers from Oke-Ogun in Oyo State paid him a courtesy visit.
The delegation, led by the Aseyin of Iseyin, Dr. Abdul Ganiyu, facilitated by Senator Abdulfatai Buhari, was in Abuja to attend a public hearing on a bill for the establishment of a Federal University of Technology in Oke-Ogun.
A spokesman for the delegation, Ahmed Raji, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, said the courtesy call was to thank the Senate President for his support for the bill.
The delegation’s spokesman further noted that out of about 30 Federal institutions in Oyo State, none was cited in the Oke-Ogun zone which has about 60 percent of the landmass and 10 out of the 33 Local Governments in the state
