2019: Candidates must provide scientifically proven campaigns – Lawmaker

IBRAHIM QUADRI

A member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Bisi Yusuff has noted that the 2019 general elections campaigns must be scientifically based.

Yusuff gave this remark in his office at Alausa, Ikeja while speaking with our correspondent, saying the era of deceit had gone.

According to him, “Nigerians are now wiser. Those seeking political offices must show what they have done for the people.

“The campaigns must be scientifically based. Whether you are returning or contesting for the first time, Nigerians will want to see what you have done in the past. You can’t deceive them any longer,” Yusuff said.

The lawmaker, who is representing Alimosho constituency I, pointed out that his representation at the Lagos Assembly had been exceptional.

“You will bear me witness that I have been representing my constituents well. I have moved several motions and contributed meaningfully on the floor of the House.

“I have facilitated 21 roads to my constituency which were commissioned by Governor Ambode. Even though Igando General Hospital is in Alimosho II, I also facilitated it.

“On education, i gave out G.C.E. and JAMB forms to our students annually. I also go as far as paying the acceptance fees of those who get admissions in higher institutions.

“When it comes to health, the whole of Alimosho I and II which comprise five councils benefit from my free health programme. This is being made possible because of my foundation, Prince of Hope,” Yusuff said.

The lawmaker who is also the Charman House Committee on Public Accounts (Local) reiterated that with sound education and good health, that would guarantee better citizenry.

Yusuff disclosed that as part of his determination to ensure good health for the people, he has plans in the next few days to assist pregnant women in his constituency in terms of their medical blls.

“We can’t blame the people for not patronizing the hospitals. Some pregnant women patronize the alternative medicine providers because of the financial implications,” the lawmaker stated.

For a better society
