“I’m saying this without fear of favour and I want everybody to know that the national assembly is not a child’s play . If you go there, you are going to work mainly for your community and not for your pocket.
“Honestly we are going to miss ourselves at the national assembly and I want to put a message before you all that being a senator is not for fun or child play. A Senator you elect is supposed to come and work for you and for the community and not just to come and give you money”, the Senate President representative, Danjuma La’ah said.
Also speaking, the engineer that handles the project, Yakubu Usman, charged the Area Council Chairmen to make use of the projects judiciously adding that residents have started dumping refuse into the drainages.
