Aspirant promises to introduce legislations on national unity, infrastructure development.


SOKOTO – A House of Representatives aspirant in Sokoto State Alhaji Al-Mustapha Ibrahim, has promised to introduce legislations that will ensure the peace, unity and progress of Nigeria.
“The unity of Nigeria should not be compromised in any way, as God has reasons for creating us as Nigerians with diverse religious, ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
” So our diversity should be our strength and the uniting factor and not a divisive one,” he told news men in Sokoto on Monday.
Ibrahim, who currently represents Rabah Local Government constituency on the platform of the All Progressives congress (APC), also said that the abundant human and natural resources should be fully harnessed and tapped.
He is seeking to represent the Wurno/Rabah federal constituency in the House of Representatives under APC umbrella in 2015.
This, he said, was extremely necessary especially now that the need to diversify the nation’s oil-dependent revenues had become apparent and necessary.
” There is need to focus more on non-oil sectors like solid minerals, agriculture, manufacturing and tourism, among others.
” Abundant water resources like the yet-to-be completed Goronyo and shagari dams, as well as several others across Nigeria should be fully tapped,” he added.
The law maker promised that when elected, he would liaise with his colleagues and relevant federal agencies, to attract more federal presence to his constituency and Sokoto State in general.
” These include roads, water and health projects, education and more interventions from the Ecological Fund to reduce the menace of desert encroachment.
“The constituency has been bereft of the required pungent representation at the House of Representatives in the past 12 years.
” I am in the race to reverse this ugly trend with a view to enabling the electorate in the area to benefit from more dividends of democracy from the three tiers of government,” Ibrahim, added. ( NAN)
