President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, said on Sunday that many Nigerians wrongly interprete the essence of constituency projects.
This is as he also said the National Assembly will continue to work with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to find lasting solutions to the current insecurity in the country.
Lawan stated this while at Malumfashi in Katsina State, to grace the occasion of the Constituency Empowerment programme sponsored by Senator Bello Mandiya representing Funtua Senatorial District in the Senate.
A statement from the senate quoted Lawan as saying “constituency project is so badly misconstrued by many.”
“This(constituency project) is what we call the empowerment of the most ordinary Nigerians that otherwise wouldn’t have been remembered when you’re talking about the national budget.
“But because members of the National Assembly are so close to the ordinary man, we try to look for those issues that make a difference in their individual and collective lives.
The Senate President commiserated with the people of Katsina over the recent deadly attacks in the state by the bandits.
“I want to assure you that we are going to continue to work with President Muhammadu Buhari till we are able to find lasting solutions to this problem of insecurity in our country.
The occasion which drew a large crowd of party faithful and supporters was also attended by Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina state.
