The member representing Ankpa 2 constituency at the Kogi state house of assembly, Hon Alfa Mommoh Rabiu has expressed his displeasure at the rate at which erosion is ravaging some parts of Ankpa local government area promises to make moves for quick government intervention.
He made the disclosure hours before his departure for holy land where he will be joining Muslim faithfuls all over the world to perform this year hajj during his late minute discussion with constituents, supporters and well wishers whom have come to offer prayers and wish him journey mercies to and from the Holy land.
In his words: “I cannot thank you enough for how you have always stood by me since my inception into office and I pray that God continues to bond our relationship. The only worry I have as I’m traveling to Holy land is reports about the gulley erosion at Olufofo and the recent one at Afo Gam-Gam but insha Allah I shall work in synergy to rescue our people as soon as I return from mecca.”
“I have complained to the special adviser to the governor on SDGs about it and if it shall require a motion of urgent public importance, I will do that as soon as I return. Considering the huge capital involvement, I am calling on my counterparts with higher responsibility in person of Hon Hassan Omale and Sen Aidoko who are both serving house of representatives member and senator respectively to lend their goodwill as this menace directly affects our rural dwellers”, he said.
It will be recalled that sometimes ago, the young and workaholic honorable led a state delegation of the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) team to Ankpa for on the spot assessment of some communities ravaged by erosion and therefore a strong indication that the legislator is fully committed to rendering succour to the plights of his constituents.
