Chairman of the Senate Committee on FCT, Senator Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi) yesterday said he would lobby President Muhammadu Buhari to fast track assent of the proposed University of Agriculture, Kabba.
A Bill seeking to establish university passed third reading last week at the Senate.
Reacting to the passage of the Bill, Melaye, in a statement said he would personally visit President Buhari to hasten assent of the Bill for immediate takeoff of the specialised university.
“It is my greatest priority and I thank God. I thank the leadership of the Senate and the entire Senate for giving the Bill an expedited passage. Okun elite should be ready as I’m planning a courtesy call on Mr President to lobby for assent of the Bill.”
