From Francis Nansak
Affirming a trending story about his defection from the People’s Democratic Party to the ruling All Progressive Congress,the House representative member representing Kokona,Karu and Keffi, Jonathan Gaza Gbefwi,has said he will be revisiting Tudun You,along side with the Nasarawa state Governor,Engineer Abdullahi Sule,when campaign for 2023 begins in earnest.
Honourable Jonathan Gaza Gbefwi,made the statement on Monday,while addressing stakeholders,youths and women during the commissioning of a rural electrification project facilitated by him.
He said the objective of his being in politics and in active governance is not for personal enrichment,or self engrasdisment,but to be of service to the people, especially those he would have hardly known them,so that they can benefit from the dividend of democracy.
According to him” I am delighted today for being here not because I want you to see me or serve me ,neither that you look at me as a very important being,but my joy for being among you people of Tudun Uku,,is that today in this community,a child can access happenings around the world,,a child from here can put on television and learn how to be innovative from Japan.
” It is also my earnest prayer that through this project as commissioned today,one among you would one day be elected to represent us as I am currently representing you today” Gaza added.
Fielding questions from journalists to know how much was the cost incured for the electrification project,he declined comment and said it was immaterial to talk about the cost for a service rendered to people,saying what matters must is that Tudun Uku Community,which never had the opportunity enjoying electricity,is now connected to the national grid and that community like any other community of Nigeria are partakers in the provisions of government.
Earlier,the traditional ruler of Tudun Uku Community, Baba Maiyamma,who received the legislator in his palace , expressed profound gratitude with the visit and said his community has resolved that they will continue to support the aspiration of the member .
According to the traditional ruler, youths ,women and the elderly I’m the Community are highly impressed with the house of representative member,who had earlier drilled borehole to the community” Today we are happy that again through you our community will be lightened,we thank you” He said.
