House of Representatives has assured the people of the North-East of the dividends of democracy, saying N46.9 billion has been earmarked for capital projects in the region this year.
House Committee Chairman on Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazaq Namdaz made this known at a dinner organised for journalists in Yola.
Namdaz, who represents Ganye/Toungo/Jada/Mayo-Belwa Federal Constituency in Adamawa State, said out of the total amount, N5.9 billion was allocated for projects in Adamawa.
He explained that projects to be executed in his constituency include the completion of Mayo-Belwa power substation by the Transmission Company of Nigeria, repair of Mayo-Belwa-Zing road and rehabilitation of the Federal Government College, Ganye.
The lawmaker also explained that there would be constituency projects worth N197 million.
“I will also continue with my youth empowerment programmes for people in my constituency. I want to urge the people of Adamawa to come out en-masse and support candidates of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the forthcoming local government election,” Namdaz said.
The federal lawmaker called for support and the understanding of citizens, saying the current hardship being experienced is a global problem and not peculiar to Nigeria alone.
“I went to South Africa, they are also facing challenges. We need to bear with President Buhari as he tries to shape things, we must realise that he is not a magician.”
