By Ahmad A. Usman, Kafanchan

The Jema’a/Sanga Community Development Charter (CDC) champions, a civil society organisation has partnered with the member House of Representatives representing Jema’a/Sanga Federal Constituency of Kaduna State, Mr Dan Amos, on project monitoring and tracking to ensure accountability and transparency in governance.

Speaking during a meeting with the rep member in Kafanchan, the CDC champions led by Mr Godwin Kumai said the partnership had become necessary to promote citizens’ participation in governance.

“We have come here to seek ways of collaborating with you as you strive to deliver on your mandate to the people.

“Your focus on the areas of health, education and agriculture amongst others are well aligned with our own thematic areas and that is why we are here,” he stated

According to him, citizens engagement and participation in governance processes is critical for sustaining the development of any society.

Kumai explained that the CDC is a participatory budgeting process and social accountability tool that enables communities to prioritize and nominate developmental needs to inform the annual budgets.

In his remarks, rep Amos, who is a first termer and the Committee Chairman on House Services, stated that he was looking to impact at least 100 communities in his constituency in 2024.

“As a first termer, we have not done badly in this year’s budget, because looking at the records it simply beats the four years of my predecessor put together.

“In this first budget, we want to reach a minimum of 100 communities that we can say we have been able to give boreholes and solar street light and much more.

“These projects are achievable and we trust the President Tinubu led Federal Government to do the needful in releasing funds for their implementation,” he added

He listed some of the projects he has attracted to his constituency in the 2024 budget to include construction and installation of all in one solar street lights and hand pumps in various communities.

Others are construction of the bridge linking Kogom and Hayin Gada and electrification from Jagindi to Kogom as well as road improvement work with drainage in Bara community in Kagoma amongst others.

The lawmaker noted that projects are in fulfilment of his campaign promise to implement projects that have a direct bearing on the people.

He pledged to collaborate with the CDC champions in identifying the priority needs of his constituents ahead of future budgetary provisions.

The CDC champions thereafter presented the Jema’a and Sanga CDC documents to the rep member as an official request of the community’s development needs.
