SENATORS SCORECARD

Kogi

Smart Adeyemi

First elected in 2007 to represent Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Adeyemi leads Kogi lawmakers in terms of bill sponsorship with twelve bills to his credit in three years.

Chair of the Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), he was a member of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) before his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on whose platform he was elected for a third term in November 2019. Senator Dino Melaye, the previous occupant of the seat was sacked from the Senate by the Court months after being sworn in 2019 for a second term.

He sought the party’s ticket for a fourth term but was unsuccessful and is considered by many as a strong contender for the State Governorship Elections later this year.

 

 

Jibrin Isah

The Senator representing Kogi Central in the National Assembly has seven bills to his credit over the last three years. Prominent among his bills is ‘The Bill For Act To Establish Federal Eye Centre At Ochadamu, Kogi State. The banker-turned-politician is a first-term lawmaker and would be contesting the 2023 election for a return to the Chamber.

He is the current Vice Chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance.

 

 

Yakubu Oseni

A representative of Kogi Central Senatorial District at the Red Chamber, Yakubu has sponsored six bills so far.

Among these bills is a  ‘Bill for an Act to establish the Solid Minerals Producing Areas Development Commission in the Federal Republic of Nigeria to address Environmental Devastation and for other connected matters thereto, 2021.” Chairman of the Senate Committee on ICT and Cyber Crimes, he is also a member of the APC.

Like Isa, Yakubu is also a first-term Senator but will, however, not be seeking re-election in 2023.
