Jatau (PDP-Kokona West) made the pledge while hosting the leadership of Eggon Youth Movement (EYM), Agwada Branch, Agwada Development Area of the state, on Tuesday in Lafia.
He also assured them of robust representation at the assembly by carrying all the people of his constituency along irrespective of their ethnic, religious and political affiliations.
Jatau appealed to the youths in his constituency to resist any attempt to lure them into violence and wanton destruction of lives and property by unpatriotic elements in the state.
The lawmaker assured his constituents of striving to justify their confidence in him by pursuing the right policies and laws for their overall good and indeed the entire state.
“I will do everything humanly possible to change your lives and the lives of the people of my constituency positively.
“I call on you to continue to preach peace and relate well with other ethnic groups in our area and the state for the overall development of the country.
“I will run an inclusive government in order to carry everybody along irrespective of their ethnic, religious and political affiliations,” he said.

Earlier, Mr Maikasuwa Audu, the Chairman of the association, said that the visit was to reassure the lawmaker of their loyalty and support to enable him to succeed.
Audu appealed to Jatau to assist them with a vehicle for the association’s activities and community development.
“We also appeal to you to come to our aid by assisting us to purchase a land in order to have our permanent office.
“Please, we know you have done a lot but we want more employment of our youths in order to improve on their standard of living,” he said. (NAN)
