Today dated 3rd of April 2022, the Prudent Watch received a letter that was jointly signed by the National President of the IEDP Union, Alhaji Aliyu Otta Uthman, and the National Secretary, Mallam Abubakar Imam.
The letter portrayed the thank-you visit the National Leadership of Ilorin Emirates Descendants Progressive Union paid to the Ilorin residence of the Senator representing Kwara Central in the National Assembly, Dr. Ibrahim Yahaya Oloriegbe over the successful conduct of the public hearing on a bill seeking the establishment of Federal College of Education, Afon, Kwara State.
The delegation, led by the Union’s National President, Alh. Aliyu Otta Uthman, fsi, also used the occasion of the visit to convey a letter of appreciation on behalf of the people of Ilorin Emirate to the lawmaker on the same subject.
Recalled that the senator had sponsored a bill for the establishment of the institution in pursuit of his bid to improve access to affordable and quality education and as well enhance the economic fortune of his constituency and the state at large.
In a letter, dated 30th March 2022, the National President, Alh Aliyu Otta Uthman, commended the lawmaker for his unswerving commitment to purposive representation which he said has become an inspiring enabler for the actualization of the abiding yearning to have a Federal College of Education in the state to satisfy the quest to expand access to qualitative education.
“The Ilorin Emirate Descendants Progressive Union (IEDPU) writes to wholeheartedly appreciate you and celebrate you on the successful staging of the public hearing on the proposed Bill for an Act to provide for the establishment of a Federal College of Education, Afon, Kwara State which took place on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022, at the National Assembly in Abuja.
Our great Union will not stop giving gratitude to Almighty Allah (SWT) for your purposeful representation of community’s interest at the hollowed chamber as this proposed Bill, when finally passed into law, has become imperative not only to satisfy our State’s over 30 years yearnings to have a Federal College of Education after the one at Okene was lost to Kogi State due to state creation but also actualize our quest to expand access to qualitative education and train qualified manpower for our primary and junior secondary schools”.
While reiterating the gratitude of the union over the lawmaker’s efforts in the actualization of the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Budo-egba for which the management had been constituted for its smooth take-off, the president applauded the sterling attributes of Dr. Oloriegbe, calling him an example of selflessness whose quality representation has over the years been the yearning of the people.
“We also like to recall, for deep appreciation, the Bill you doggedly sponsored which was passed into an Act that established the Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Budo Egba in Asa Local Government Area of our jurisdiction. The management of the Hospital has since been constituted for a smooth take-off while the people of Ilorin Emirate will eternally be grateful to you for your efforts in this regard and many more that are still incipient.”
“Your soaring profile as a distinguished Senator of repute exhumes in you the best example of selflessness and quality representation our community has been yearning for over the years and this has endeared you not only to the people of Ilorin Emirate but also to your fellow Senators alike, making all your sponsored Bills find favour with your colleagues.”
In concluding the letter, the Union recalled the effectiveness of the lawmaker when he served as an executive member of the Kano State chapter of the association which led to his election into the National Executive Council, describing him as an outstanding ambassador of the Emirate who is keeping its flag flying.
“The Union is unsurprised with your distinguished dispositions you were a functional member right from your days in the city of Kano and eventual election into the National Executive Council about two and a half decades ago. Hence, your outstanding patriotism and services as an ambassador of Ilorin Emirate who is keeping its flag flying”
“On our part, as believers in the efficacy of prayers, we will continue to wish you success in your legislative functions while we pray Allah to reward your superlative performance with prolonged life in good health and all that would please you.”
