OrderpaperToday – Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila on Thursday called on the people of Pankshin/Kanam/Kanke Federal constituency in Plateau to support their representative, Yusuf Adamu Gagdi, and ensure he returns in 2023.
He made the remark while addressing a delegation of the Board and Management staff of the defunct Federal College of Education Pankshin- now Federal University of Technology Pankshin, following the President’s assent of a bill establishing same on Wednesday.
According to Gbajabiamila, the quality of representation a constituency can get is in its ability to support and retain performing representatives who by virtue of their activities attract good things to their people, urging that appreciation should go to him (Gagdi) for his efforts.

“While I thank you for coming to see us, I think that the House only did what it believed was right. However, the appreciation should perhaps go to the member who sponsored the bill and saw it to a logical conclusion.
The speed with which the bill was assented to by Mr president lent credence to its importance. And the member did very well to see it through. The need for the University was elaborately and painstakingly explained by him during the debate and there was no reason not to support it,” he said to the delegation.

“Getting a bill passed and signed into law is not a mean feat. It’s not an easy job, but Hon. Gagdi has been able to sponsor Bills out of which two have been signed, and that’s an effective representation that should be encouraged,” the Speaker added.
He, therefore, enjoined the people to give Gagdi another opportunity for having “done very well” for his people come 2023.
Provost of the school, Dr. Amos Bulus Cufat, commended the speaker for his support thus far, saying that despite being a first timer, he has been able to, through the Speaker’s support get two of his bills signed into law by Mr. President.
