Sec­ond Repub­lic po­lit­i­can, Al­haji Ibrahim Tukura, has ex­plained why he wants to con­test the Se­nate seat of the Federal Cap­i­tal; Ter­ri­tory say­ing the seat would ac­cord him the op­por­tu­nity to con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of the FCT.

Tukura who is the Wazirin Rubochi, in a state­ment yes­ter­day, said the FCT cur­rently is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing chal­lenges in the ar­eas of lack of good road net­work, and in­ad­e­quate potable wa­ter in the six area coun­cils.

“I want to con­test in or­der to change the po­lit­i­cal sys­tem of money pol­i­tics by em­pow­er­ing youths and women groups as well as pro­vide potable drink­ing wa­ter in the six area coun­cils.My mis­sion also is to ad­dress the prob­lem of road net­works and de­con­gest the traf­fic at FCT while also cre­at­ing jobs to the teem­ing youths who are un­em­ployed by re­viv­ing in­dus­tries,” he said.

Tukura who con­tested the House of as­sem­bly seat in Plateau State in 1979, said the na­tional con­fer­ence is a du­pli­ca­tion of pol­icy mak­ing as mem­bers of the Na­tional As­sem­bly are ex­pected to ad­dress the is­sues be­ing ad­dressed at the con­fer­ence.

“At least I am seek­ing the man­date to en­able con­trib­ute my quota to­wards the de­vel­op­ment of FCT” he stated.
