Comrade Ifraimu Dauda has declared interest to run for Bwari/AMAC federal constituency seat in the House of Representatives.
Declaring his intention at the Esu Ushafa palace at the weekend, Comrade Ifraimu said his decision is to liberate his people from constitutional loopholes that need amendment to ensure that FCT natives get what rightly belongs to them.
He added that his decision to declare first at the palace is to seek royal blessings for the race.
“I’m running for the race to serve my people, there are a lot of constitutional issues affecting my people that need to be addressed and to make sure that those things that rightly belong to the FCT natives are given to us.”
The House of Representatives aspirant for Bwari/AMAC federal constituency disclosed that some of the burning issues that he would address include bill for area council autonom the natives.
He explained that land of local government autonomy has made governors too powerful thereby denying council chairmen the resources to deliver dividends of democracy to the grassroots.
He further stated that local government autonomy would enable council chairmen have direct resources from the federal government to execute projects.
Ifraimu commended the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, for his recent move to carry the natives along in his major decision making and called for an integration of the natives into the FCT scheme.
He noted that the natives do not have any other place to relocate to other than to be carried along and integrated as the city has come to stay.
“Every constitution is meant to suite the interest of the people, so if the constitution does not suite the natives of the FCT, then such constitution needs to be reviewed now because we don’t have any other place to go to except Abuja,”
