Mr Johnson Zaki, a Kaduna State House of Assembly hopeful for Jema’a constituency, has assured his constituents of effective representation if given the mandate.
Zaki, a 35-year-old business tycoon, made the pledge while speaking with newsmen in Kafanchan, headquarters of Jema’a Local Government Area.
According to him, he is in the race for the Jema’a Assembly seat to provide positive, all inclusive representation, which he said, had been lacking in the constituency.
“I am in this contest because I want to give quality representation to my people because they deserve it and much more.
“Before now, I have been carrying out projects in Jema’a that have direct bearing on the lives of my people, in my own personal capacity.
“And so getting the people’s mandate can only mean more projects and empowerment programs for the women and youths to realize their full potential.
“I will hold quarterly town hall meetings to ensure popular views and needs of communities are documented and a follow up to ensure positive action,” he added
He added that educational scholarships, agricultural interventions for farmers, sports and health issues will be given priority.
The business man said he was bringing fresh energy and ideas to better the lot of his people, noting that the industry and innovativeness of the youths makes them well placed to transform society.
“If I get the seat, we will do great exploits. People will see radical changes in Jema’a constituency.
“I will be bringing my youthful energy and new ideas to turn things around for the good of everyone. It won’t be business as usual I assure you,” he stated
On his legislative blue print, the aspirant promised to initiate qualitative legislations that would improve the socio-economic well-being of his constituents and Kaduna people at large.
He called on other aspirants to be civil and decent in their utterances as they canvas for votes because election is not a do or die affair.
“Election is not a do or die affair. If I don’t get the seat, then fine. My whole life does not depend on it. I will go back to my business.
“And I expect others to do the same thing, and allow the collective will of the people to always prevail at the end of the day,” he added.
