OrderPaperToday – House of Representatives member Mr. Zaphania Jisalo representing AMAC/Bwari federal constituency of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has assured his constituents of quality representation if elected to the Senate in the forthcoming general elections.
Mr. Jisalo made the promise at a town hall meeting held in Apo, Abuja, FCT with stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to him, the meeting is to engage party chairmen of different wards in order to fine tune campaign strategies for his election to the upper chamber (Senate) and also to ensure President Muhammadu Buhari is reelected in the forthcoming general elections.
He further pledged to liaise with the government in power if elected to ensure inclusiveness for FCT residents in its programmes, policies and activities.
He said: “I want to thank God for where I am today because I was elected by my party the APC as their senatorial candidate. I’m grateful to the party at ward level especially Garki ward where I come from. I extend same appreciation to local governments, the FCT as a whole and of course I’m thankful to the national leadership of my great party the APC.
“Nonetheless, I’m confident I will win this election that’s with the support you are giving me. I want to assure that when elected into the senate I will ensure peace and unity of FCT residents. Though, I have tried as a House of Representatives member but there’s still more to be done.
“I will also continue to push for a ministerial position for indigenes of FCT who currently feel marginalized. I even sponsored a bill in that regard in the house but it never saw the light of the day. I intend to also follow up the bill for the establishment of university of science and technology Abaji.”
While listing some of his major projects he would like to be remembered for, he said: “As part of my constituency project I attracted the Apo resettlement mini stadium under AMAC area council; I constructed and tarred several roads in AMAC and Bwari, one of the roads and a bridge I built is not too far from where we having this interview. It is very close to the Catholic church. I have also drilled several boreholes in the two local governments I represent and also provided transformers in rural areas so that they can enjoy electricity”
“Finally, since we are in campaign season, I want the people of FCT to vote Baba Buhari for President of Nigeria and myself for senator FCT. The FCT residents should also vote for Mr. Lamode for House of Representatives and all our councils should be returned as well.”
