The House of Representatives member representing the good people of Baruten/Kaiama Federal Constituency of Kwara State, Hon. Mohammed Omar Bio, and other Kwara North elected/appointed political office holders, has embarked on unity tour and constituents engagements across the zone. The first phase of the initiative covered a 2-days tour of 2 (Baruten and Kaiama) of the 5 local governments in the zone.
According to the Kwara North Unity Tour/Town Hall Meetings became necessarily inevitable in order to brief constituents on stewardships, determine priorities of the people and for the purpose of uniting the senatorial zone.
Hon. Bio, in his engagements with constituents at separate town hall meetings in Kosubosu and Kaiama respectively, noted that the zone is severely lagging behind in the ladder of growth and development, adding that they (political office holders; both elected and appointed) can not afford to let their guards down after overwhelmingly enjoyed the supports of the electorates during the 2019 campaigns/elections and even now.
“The Kwara North Senatorial District is in a hurry for growth and development. We are taking all measures to addressing those challenges that has held the people captive for years so that we can chart a new purposeful direction in surmounting every developmental hiccup. But, we (elected/appointed political office holders) can not achieve this alone. We need untiy of purpose, your support and prayers. This is the reason for this initiative i.e the Kwara North Unity Tour and Town Hall Meetings”, the lawmaker said.
“We have updated you with some of our major achievements when we marked one year in office as elected/appointed political office holders. We were able to also make some significant and impactful progress between that period and now. We will continue to do our best for the benefit of you and the society. This is our convenance with you during the campaigns. We can not afford to fail you, In Sha Allah”, Dan Madamin Ilesha added.
The former Council Chairman also unfolded some of the projects lined up for constituents as facilitated in the 2020 budget scoping from Zonal Intervention Projects, ZIP, to Capital Projects.
“In no distant time from now, our ZIP will be coming up where a reasonable number of our women and youths will be empowered with various items. This will be in addition to those already trained and empowered with acquired skills tools. Our reasons for focusing on empowerments is not farfetched. You all will agree with me that when a woman is empowered, the society is empowered and when we empower the youth then we have curb a probable increase in the worrisome number of crimes in the society”, Bio disclosed.
“Other projects lined up to commence soon are water sanitation, renovations of classrooms, provisions of electricity transformers, provisions of solar street lights, etc”, he further disclosed.
