By Ahmed A. Usman, Kafanchan
Elected office holders in Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State have been urged to see the need to synergize, irrespective of party affiliations, so that more development can be attracted in the area.
The call was made by the member representing Jema’a Constituency in the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Ali Kalat, during a visit to the Chairman of Jema’a Local Government Council, Comrade Yunana Markus Barde, on Wednesday, at the Secretariat in Kafanchan.
Recalled that the House Member belongs to PDP while the Executive Chairman is from APC, Kalat said elections have come and gone and it is now time for governance; therefore, there should be more robust engagements, especially between Local Governments and the State legislature so that dividends of democracy can be delivered to the people.
He noted that the constituents were looking up to political office to alleviate the current hardships they are facing, and assured that they will not relent in exploring avenues to bring succour.
The lawmaker, who is the Minority Leader in the House of Assembly, said he will move motions on the floor of the House for the improvement of infrastructure in tertiary institutions located in his constituency; Kaduna State College of Education (KSCOE), Kaduna State College of Nursing and Midwifery and Kafanchan Campus of Kaduna State University (KASU).
Earlier in a remark, the Chairman of Jema’a Local Government Council, Comrade Barde, noted that executing projects transcend party affiliations, and said all hands must be on deck to move the area to the next level of development.
Barde said there is a lot of pressure on the Council to deliver on governance, as the closest tier of government to the grassroots, thus the need for closer collaboration with the legislature to actualize the people’s yearnings.
Shortly after the meeting, the Minority Leader inspected ongoing construction of drainages in Aduwan One community, to mitigate the threat caused by gully erosion.
