The honourable member held meetings with the traditional rulers, youths, women, pressure groups and different trade unions and associations where he gave summary of his stewardship as a member representing them at the Green Chamber.
At Kwal, Gagdi met and interfaced with village heads and some traditional title holders and briefed them on what he was able to accomplished for the constituency in less than two years and also unveil the numerous plans he have for the constituency.
He brought to them the good news of the construction of befitting district heads palaces and office at Garram and Amper districts which contractors had already mobilised to site last week ago and have 60 days to complete the project.
The construction of the Garram and Amper District Palaces and offices are among the six other palaces that work has commenced already in the last one week within Pankshin, Kanke and Kanam as part of his constituency projects. Six districts are considered for the first phase this year while the remaining districts will be captured in the second phase.
The Hon. member also promised the mammoth crowd that the collapsed Gugur bridge will be reconstructed by him within the shortest time.
During the parley with different interest groups and individuals, Hon. Gagdi again highlighted some of the achievements within the short span of his representation which includes among others; the building of classroom blocks and offices at GSS Kor, Belning ward Pankshin LGA, building of classroom blocks, office and furnishing of a community secondary school at Dungung, Kanke LGA, an examination hall at KADA special academy Dengi, Kanam LGA, traditional leaders palaces, filling of potholes to make the road safer for driving from Kabwir to Dengi, kanam LGA, many phases of intervention during the lockdown due to Covid 19, provision of millions of naira worth of food support to his constituents during Sallah and Christmas festivities, provision of non interest loan to businesses as a form of support against the dwindling economy due to the corona pandemic and many other laudable interventions and projects.
Just as he explained to his teaming constituents in Kanam and Pankshin the reason behind the challenge faced by some individuals out of the 284 people he was able to secure employment for, he explained the same scenario to the good people of Kanke. Their inability to report to their places of work at Federal University Wukari and Lafia was them not being captured by IPPIS due to the Universities exhausting their budgeted personell cost and the frantic efforts he is making to see the problem being rectified and to even scout, lobby and secure more job opportunities to his constituents. He also give a brief note on his upcoming empowerment program where 400 motorcycles, 400 sewing machines, 400 grinding machines and 40 406 peugeot cars will be distributed. With 20 individuals per polling units with small businesses getting a cash support of between ten to twenty thousand naira only.
The program will be coming soon with the Executive Governor of Plateau State Barr Simon Bako Lalong and Speaker House of Representatives Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila expected to grace and bless the event with their presence at Pankshin.
In a demonstration of genuine love to PKK, he said instead of pushing for a new road project to be sited somewhere he rather choose that funds be allocated in the budget for the continuation of the Babban Lamba-Sharam road and assured the constituents that, as soon as capital releases for 2021 budget are made, contractors will be back to site to complete the project.
It was a marvelous and very engaging parley where different respondents commended the giant strides and the people centered representation of Rt Hon Yusuf Gagdi. It was a cheering and very heart touching outing with the honorable member stopping by at different locations from Kwal in Kanke upto Pankshin exchanging pleasantries with his constituents.
The people are indeed at the center of all the engagements of Gagdi forming the very core cardinal of his legislative direction.
