Ganduje says he won’t be a spectator legislator
As the general elections draw nearer, Engr Abba Umar Ganduje has assured that he would not be a bench warmer if elected to represent Dawakin Today, Rimingado, Tofa federal constituency of Kano state in the House of Representatives.
In an interactive session with reporters in Abuja at the weekend, Ganduje promised to deliver dividends of democracy and effective representation if he is given the opportunity to serve in the 10th Assembly.
The APC candidate assured that he would, at all times, bring into focus the concerns of his people on the floor of the Green Chamber.
According to him, his well-articulated programmes will be tailored to address the deprivations that the people of Dawakin Tofa/Tofa/Rimingadu constituency had suffered over the years under the incumbent lawmaker.
Ganduje said his direct personal interventions would be focused on supporting the weaker members of the constituency in the areas of their health needs, education, empowerment, employment among others.
He noted: “I wish to say this is not just the usual deceptive campaign theatrics of politicians. This is not also to engage in unfulfilled promises at every election season like this.
” I intend to serve through effective and efficient representation and by bringing the dividends of democracy to the people of the Dawakin Tofa/Tofa/RiminGadu constituency.
“Getting to the National Assembly on my people’s mandate by God’s grace, my programmes will come through the promotion of legislation that will address our peculiar needs and through direct personal interventions to support the great people of my constituency.
“The people of my constituency are yearning for a change and they have assured me of their support to bring about the needed change that will usher in quality representation and development.
“I am confident of victory Insha Allah. I have engaged with the real voters and because they trust us, and because we will be accountable, I will not run away from them, so they have promised me massive votes to change the equation and replace inefficiency in Dawakin Tofa/Tofa/ Rimin Gado Federal Constituency area of Kano state.
“For me, I will be an active member of the House who would not be there to warm seat, remain a spectator but an effective member whose impact would be felt by the people of my constituency, state and the Nation in general,” Abba Ganduje assured.
If elected, Ganduje will take over from Tijjani Abdulkadir Jobe, who is serving the federal constituency for the fourth term.
Abba Ganduje, an Electrical Engineering graduate of American University of Sharjah, UAE, Master of Communications Management from Buckinghamshire New University, United Kingdom, with vast expertise in Telecommunications sector in Nigera and abroad, believes that his experiences both in private and public sector will help to lift humanity and in the course of his assignment as a federal lawmaker.
Ganduje who had recently empowered some of his constituents with various valuable items said he would serve the people of the constituency diligently and impact lives positively if elected.
