From Abel Leonard, Lafia
Barely a month before the 2023 general elections, Hon Abubakar Nalaraba, who represents Awe/Doma/Keana Federal Constituency of Nasarawa State in the House of Representatives, has inaugurated his campaign council and commissioned some projects.
The inauguration of the campaign council, consisting of old-time politicians selected by the representative and the projects, took place on Saturday in Awe, the headquarters of Awe local government area of Nasarawa State.
Between 2019, 2020 and 2021, the Nalarba executed almost 30 projects some of which includes the construction of a modern abattoir/slaughter slab in Doma, the construction of a multi-purpose hall and road in Awe, the provision of over 30 solar-powered boreholes in electoral wards of Awe, Doma and Keana federal constituency and many others.
Special guest of honour at the occasion, Governor Abdullahi Sule, represented by his deputy, Dr Emmanuel Akabe, gave the legislature a pat on the back for execution projects across the three local government areas he’s representing.
The governor called on other politicians to emulate Nalaraba, saying the projects are worthy of commendation and served as campaign tools for APC in the state.
Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, the Senator representing Nasarawa South at the NASS, who also thanked the legislature for effective representation, urged electorates to go and collect their PVCs and vote for all candidates of APC.
Al-Makura, who appealed for a rancour-free election, urged voters in the state to vote for Ahmed Bola Tinubu, Governor Sule, himself, Nalaraba and all APC candidates of APC.
Earlier in a welcome address, Nalaraba, who was lively and exhibited some dancing skills at the event, thanked the electorates for sending him to represent them at the green chamber.
Nalaraba, who holds the traditional title of Sadaukin Lafia, said all he did in the last four years was a tip of an ice bag, as according to him if voted back he will do good and attract more projects for his constituency for them to enjoy dividends of democracy.
