Lokoja, July 25, 2022
The Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for Yagba West in 2023 State Assembly Constituency election in Kogi, Hon. Sunday Isaiah Maiyaki, has assured his constituents of a quality legislative representation if given the opportunity to represent them.
Maiyaki gave the assurance in an exclusive interview with our Correspondent in Lokoja on Monday.
Maiyaki also promised to employ intensive lobbying that would bring succour to his people and wipe out the untold hardship inflicted on them by the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kogi State.
He vowed that if given the mandate, he would agressively push for new laws that would guarantee adequate checks and balances between the executive and legislative arms of government for accountability and transparency in the system.
He, therefore, called on the people of his area to reject the ruling APC that had inflicted poverty, pains and insecurity on them and vote wisely for all the candidates of the opposition PDP to regain their sound livelihood.
Maiyaki, who is a graduate of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria, lamented the negative impact of vote buying on the nation’s electoral process and urged the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC), to end the unfortunate trend.
According to him, this can be effectively achieved by making polling booths a bit far from the eyes of voters and agents alike, this will give the electorate the audacity to vote for their conscience and disabuse the mind of the ‘buyer’.
While commending PDP delegates in Yagba west for given him their mandate to fly the ticket, Maiyaki appreciated Dr Ekundayo Samuel, for facilitating the media publication which had given the opportunity to unfolding his manifesto to his constituents.
