“Therefore, I promise to leverage on the experiences of the best hands in the Federal Constituecy to provide the desired representation in every sense of the word to my constituents if I’m given the opportunity.”
Unveiling his agenda which premised on qualitative, passionate, visible and result – oriented representation for the constituency, Turaki stressed that it has become necessary to pursue due to prevailing economic situation affecting communities.
