Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has said a lot of Nigerians misinterpret the importance of constituency projects.
Ahmad Lawan while at an event in Malumfashi Katsina State, to witness Constituency Empowerment programme sponsored by Senator Bello Mandiya representing Funtua Senatorial District in the Senate, said “constituency project is so badly misconstrued by many.”
Quote In Full “This (constituency project) is what we call the empowerment of the most ordinary Nigerians that otherwise wouldn’t have been remembered when you’re talking about the national budget.
“But because members of the National Assembly are so close to the ordinary man, we try to look for those issues that make a difference in their individual and collective lives.
“So, for those who would today receive the motorcycles, the water pumps for irrigation and other items here, I want to congratulate you and assure you that this is just the beginning,”
The Senate President commiserated with the people of Katsina over the recent deadly attacks in the state by the bandits.
“I want to assure you that we are going to continue to work with President Muhammadu Buhari till we are able to find lasting solutions to this problem of insecurity in our country.
“We will also ensure that government provides infrastructure across the country that makes life meaningful for Nigerians,”.
The occasion which drew a large crowd of party faithful and supporters was also attended by Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina state.
