The Senate has adopted a motion to rename one of its Committee rooms after the late Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Lekan Balogun.

The late Olubadanwho served as Senator representing Oyo Central Senatorial District from 1999 to 2003 joined his ancestors on Thursday, March 14, 2,023 at the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan at age 81 after a brief illness.

He reigned for two years.

The motion, which was sponsored by Senator Sharafadeen Abiodun Ali informed the Senate that the late Olubadan was a leader par excellence, community developer and service-driven politician which culminated in his election as Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria from 1999 to 2003.

The Senate accordingly after debates on the motion, adopted all the prayers sought as resolutions, one of which was to immortalize the late monarch by naming one of the Senate committee rooms after him.

It also accordingly held a minute of silence in honour of the late Olubadan.
