The non performance of some representatives have been largely attributed to the fact that they were not prepared for the calling , their inbuilt inhumane nature and their greedy taste for wealth accumulation.
It is not exaggeration that Distinguished Senator Dr AbdulFatai Omotayo Buhari ,representing the Oyo North Senatorial District at the Upper Chamber has raised the bar of representation ,not only in Oyo North alone but Nigeria at large, reaffirming the Pace Setter status of Oyo State.
His qualitative representation dates back to his days at the lower chamber(House of Representatives) between 2003-2007, where he embarked on certain policies that other law makers have emulated til date.
records at the state level as the Special Adviser on Water Resources and Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters under the able leadership of the Late former Governor of Oyo State, Sen Isiaq Abiola Ajimobi, also attest to his selfless and purposeful leadership styles full of vision and direction.
The truly Distinguished Senator, is a proactive team leader with great absorbs and very strong belief in the Supreme Being, who does not allow distractions to hinder him from achieving set goals, aims and objectives.
Records have it that the combinations of the achievements of all the representatives from Oyo North at the Red Chamber from 1999-2011 can no way match the qualitative representation of Senator Dr (Prince) AbdulFatai Omotayo Buhari, in terms of bills sponsored and co-sponsored, projects facilitated , personal projects, empowerment programmes, workshops, seminars organised, employment, to mention but a few, in his first tenure of four (4) years, between 2015 – 2019, which gave him the name “Omoluabi” meaning, born with good virtues.
As the Chairman of Senate Committee on Information Communication Technology (ICT) and Cybercrime and Vice Chairman on Industry in the eighth (8th) Assembly, he worked tirelessly and progressively to ensure all the thirteen (13) local governments he represents ,ten (10) in Oke-Ogun and three (3) in Ogbomoso axis of the state had well equipped and tastefully furnished ICT Centres with CBT Centres in each zone, making available power generating facilities and maintenance fees.
Unprecedentedly Unbelievable, “Omoluabi Ponbele” indeed.
His remarkable roles when Ladoke Akintola University Of Technology (LAUTECH) went on a long strike and brilliant moves for the speedy completion of the yet to be completed Oyo – Ogbomoso expressway ( hopeful to be completed very soonest) ,which has claimed so many lives, on the floor of the Hallowed Chamber, cannot be overemphasized.
Not surprised the good people of Oyo North Senatorial District , in their quest for more purposeful representation , spoke in one voice to give him another mandate,first in the history of zone, to continue the good works he started few years ago by re-electing him to the Upper Chamber.
With his appointment as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Land Transportation, it is generally believed that, as a round peg in a round hole , as an achiever and performer who always wantd to break records and write his name on gold, the Distinguished Senator will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that he excels brilliantly in his new very tasking and challenging responsibilities , against all odds, for the betterment of the good people of Oyo North, Oyo State and Nigeria at large.
This the Senator has started by reaching out to the concerned to ensure roads that need rehabilitation and reconstruction are well attended to within the Senatorial District he champions at the Red Chamber as well as federal roads in the country.
His unprecedented gestures during this Pandemic period to the loving people of his constituents has been largely described as second to none – distribution of over a thousand bags of rice and semovita and cash (at three (3) different times), presentation of equipment (nose masks, hand gloves, hand sanitizers, liquid soap,etc) worth millions of naira to Ladoke Akintola University Of Technology Teaching Hospital in Ogbomoso.
The Coronavirus Pandemic which has halted economic activities globally has affected the numerous programmes the Distinguished Senator has highlighted for his constituents,ranging from super mega empowerment programmes, seminars, trainings, to mention but a few.
The good people of the zone and state at large should expect more purposeful and dividend driven representation from the Distinguished Senator in the years ahead.
Ogbomoso, Oke-Ogun and Oyo State in general is truly blessed to have a humility personified, selfless and a responsibly responsive servant of Senator AbdulFatai Omotayo Buhari (BAF) caliber.
It is therefore imperative that we rally round him, as an indivisible united entity, for him to excel for the betterment of all because his success is our pride.
Senator Fatai Buhari, a true definition of “Omoluabi Ponbele”, the Messiah of Oyo North Senatorial District.
