Member House of Reps Hon. Ekene Abubakar Adams has shared ten transformers to constituents in order to solve problem of power outage.
This is coming as the federal legislator representing Chikun/Kajuru vowed to remain in Labour Party(LP) on which platform he contested and won an election in 2023.
He made the vow in Kaduna while dolling out ten transformers, six cars, two motorcycles to ward excos, including those of All Progressives Congress(APC), People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and of course the Labour Party (LP).
Ekene maintained that politics should be all about service to people, saying campaign and elections were over, adding that now should be the time for delivering dividends of democracy to the electorate .
He pledged to ensure adequate coverage of communities in need of transformers within Chikun/Kajuru Constituency.
He attributed rising cases of insecurity to hunger and idleness among youth, vowing to do more in job creation and empowerment of people at the grassroots to checkmate antisocial behaviour in the society.
He also doled out 150 thousand naira cash to 66 wives of ward chairmen of APC, PDP and LP.
“I will continue to be a pro welfare representative of the people to ensure their welfare and other needs are well taken care of.
“Now is the time to give back to people even before We settle down for legislative duties.
“While I was on campaign tours prior to the election, several communities, some of which have been in darkness for long due to faulty or lack of transformers approached me with their request and I promised them.
“Today is the day I am redeeming my pledge to them by providing these transformers for their use so they could have a sense of belonging like others enjoying electricity.
“These 500 kva transformers were bought from my personal resources, they are not part of my constituency project, ” he said.
Beneficiary communities included; Gonin-Gora, Kanti Aga, Karji, Nasarawa, Ungwan Gimbiya among others.
To ensure proper distribution according to need and priority, the grassroots politician made traditional heads of Adara, Gbagyi and Kajuru to oversee distribution of the transformers.
