People liv­ing close to River Gu­rara in Abaji Area Coun­cil were full of praises for the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the FCT in the up­per cham­ber of Na­tional As­sem­bly Se­na­tor Philip Aduda af­ter he do­nated a new speed boat to them.

City News learned that the boat costs N1.8 mil­lion and it will serve the people of more than six com­mu­ni­ties.

Among the ben­e­fit­ing com­mu­ni­ties are Ma­m­agi, Alu, Maogi, Egulo, Chepu and Lam­bata.

Speak­ing at the oc­ca­sion in Ma­m­agi, Se­na­tor Aduda said hav­ing served as coun­cilor and vice chair­man he was con­ver­sant with yearn­ings and the as­pi­ra­tions of the people at the grass­roots.

He said since the people re­solved to elect him as their rep­re­sen­ta­tive, he was duty bound to pro­vide a pur­pose­ful lead­er­ship to them and at­tend to the is­sues af­fect­ing their wel­fare.

“As a hu­man be­ing, I am only do­ing my best to my people, there is no way their needs can all be sat­is­fied but I will con­tinue to reach out to them based on the re­sources at my dis­posal,” the se­na­tor said.

Aduda said he would soon com­mence a tour of all the 62 po­lit­i­cal wards in the ter­ri­tory to show­case what he has been do­ing for the people he is rep­re­sent­ing.

Ear­lier, the Chair­man of Abaji Area Coun­cil, Al­haji Ya­haya Garba Gawu, thanked the se­na­tor for his sup­port for the people of the area.

“Look at the speed boat he do­nated, it will ease the trans­porta­tion prob­lem of many vil­lagers liv­ing across the River Gu­rara. He pro­vided Abaji towns with transformers and mo­torised bore­holes. He has been try­ing his best.”

While com­mis­sion­ing a bore­hole at old mar­ket area of Abaji cen­tral ward, the se­na­tor was pre­sented with a ram in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of his ges­ture to the com­mu­nity.
