Honour for lawmaker
A member of the House of Representatives, who represents Emure/Gbonyin/Ekiti East Constituency, Hon Bamidele Faparusi, has bagged a honourary doctorate degree at the Commonwealth University, United Kingdom (UK).
A source told The Nation yesterday that the lawmaker traveled out of the country to the UK through Dubai about 4pm yesterday.
The award, the source said, is not unconnected with the “impressive” representation that the lawmaker has given his constituency, coupled with his people-oriented empowerment initiatives that have lifted many indigenes of Ekiti State.
Confirming the story, Faparusi said the award came to him as a surprise, adding: “I appreciate the honour, but I must say that serving my constituency has remained part of my natural self; it is something that I see as an avowed commitment. The award, to me, is a further impetus to drive me to do more for my people and fatherland.”
