Yusuf Ahmad Albasu, Kano.
The drum beats of politics have swayed across the country’s political atmosphere ahead of the 2023 General Elections. Where hidden and quieter aspirants have crept out from their abodes. As a keen observer of the political trends in Albasu, Gaya & Ajingi federal constituency of Kano state. We have seen this quieter aspirant creeping out from their Abuja abodes.
In this regards the choice before the people is between going forward, with records of visible achievements across the constituency against the empty promises of a Desperate Position Seeker. Very fortunate, the peoples of Albasu, Gaya & Ajingi local government areas are wiser and will only vote on their conscious for quality representation in the 2023 elections.
My simple message to the party’s delegates in the forthcoming primaries in Albasu, Gaya & Ajingi Federal Constituency is to be wary of the desperate aspirant who mistakenly relies on the myopic thought of having backing in Abuja as his utterances show. Days are gone when even mentioning PMB’s name or attached poster his picture can enable an aspirant to win the election. Anybody who wants to contest in the 2023 general elections has to work hard and not using his name to canvass for support is no longer workable.
The constituents people we do not let anybody vote for peanuts as the people will only vote for selfless and true representatives that will serve the constituency diligently. There will rise to take advantage of civic responsibility in maintaining the emerging achievements spread across. The peoples of the constituency are sagacious enough and will only ote by their conscience and no one will buy them easily. As the constituency need an experienced lawmaker who will remain with peoples without deserting peoples after the election.
The incumbent member, Hon Gaya always stands in matters affecting people black is black and white is white, this accorded him a chance to serve the constituency enter and remain dedicated to serving
The best option since the invocation of the 8 and 9th National Assembly available indices showed that better than other former members from the area. The people of & the Ajingi and Albasu government areas should not joke with our best at this critical time as we need more development in the area. Therefore, appealing to all to continue to trust him even beyond 2023 for more development.
Why constituency needs continuity, before the 2015 elections the constituency has been neglected in terms of true representation in the House of Representatives with poor constituency Projects. With the unflinching commitments of Hon Abdullahi Mahmud Gaya, narrations have been changed for the better. With apparent development across all the nooks and cronies of the three local government areas. It is indeed a task before electorates towards consolidating the emerging development in terms of projects and required representation in the House of Representatives.
Throughout seven years of being in the House of Representatives, he remains accessible and responsive to electorates holding regular interactions with leaders of the local government, party officials, elders, and other party stakeholders to hear their priorities as their priorities are crucial in making any decision that has a direct bearing on them. Hon Mahmud Gaya’s amazing conduct distinguished him different with the rest of the elected public servants who singlehandedly took decisions without consulting their people but for him, there was no decision taken singlehandedly without consultation of all stakeholders in the constituency and most importantly maintaining a single phone number and also accessible, responsive in additions of visiting his constituency every week this has shows that he has provided far-reaching consultative representation.
“We need to encourage and support his aspiration in 2023. What he has done as a House of Representatives member is unprecedented. Hon Mahmud Gaya has accorded Education the attention it deserves, building 30 blocks of classrooms consisting of 2 and 3 per block, including offices and toilets, which were constructed and furnished throughout 30 wards of the Constituency is the first of its kind in Albasu, Gaya & Ajingi federal constituency The project would accommodate an estimated 7,000 pupils, as each classroom will contain 60 pupils and recruited 150 voluntary teachers and placed them on a monthly allowance of N10,000.”
Knowing fully supporting women cannot overemphasize as they play a multidimensional role in today’s economy. 10, 000 women across the constituency undergoing different Training and Capacity Building Workshop on Poultry Production and other Modern Goat rearing both beneficiaries received N20,000 each as a starting capital across three local government areas.
AMG designed a special empowerment program for widows with saloon kits to start saloon businesses, grinding machines, cold rooms, and sewing machines with 20, 000 Naira as seed capital to take care of their children. Considering the youth are the backbone of any society and country at large. For the first time in the history of the constituency, he has secured a job for some youth from the constituency in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) Nigerian Army, Navy, Airforce, Police, Civil Defence, Federal Road Safety Corps, KEDCO and many other places.
Even those without formal academic certificates are not left behind, they undergo skills training in various trades aimed at making them more economically self-reliant through agricultural support with water pump machines for irrigation farming. Hundred of Cold rooms and a hundred motorcycles were also provided to support them. Hundreds of Solar Street Light across the constituency. Hundred motorized boreholes with overhead water tanks in each ward of the constituency were provided. A substantial amount of funds is provided towards rehabilitation security facilities across Albasu/Gaya & Ajingi local government areas.
To the party’s delegates, history will not be kind to them if their fail to do the needful in voting for the right candidate. there is a need for them not to compromise their integrity with monetary inducement or other sweet mouth promises by other aspirants vying for the seat. In the upcoming general election, electorates will only vote for an aspirant who is accessible and responding to the voter’s plead and sees the electorates’ concerns as his concerns. and we understand the antics of this Abuja’s base who mistakenly rely on myopic thought of having backing in Abuja.
Every bird flies but not as Eagle does, Hon Abdullahi Gaya is the right person. the right man at the right time for Ajingi, Gaya, and Albasu federal constituency. He is informed and possesses all the qualities the peoples of the three local government areas want in National Assembly Representation. In all facets of performing Duties, Hon Abdullahi Mahmud Gaya stands out in distinction.
