Mr. Emeka Aforka, Deputy Majority Leader of Anambra House of Assembly has called on people of the state to see the development of the state as a collective responsibility.

Aforka, who was elected on the APGA platform, representing Orumba North Constituency made the call in an interview with Nigeria News Agency in Awka on Thursday.

He said that the citizens should have a mindset of a state where justice, honesty and peace thrived and should display spirit of zero tolerance for corruption.

Aforka said that he had concluded his assessment of 16 communities in the constituency and assured all of equal representation.

The communities are Ajalli, Akpu,. Amaokpala,, Ameatiti, Awa, Awgbu, Nanka, Ndikeli-Onwu, Ndi-Okolo, Ndiowu, Okpoeze,Omogho,Ufuma,Ndiu-Kwuenu,Ndiokipala.

“I have taken record of the pressing needs of all and promised to do my best in attending to the needs ranging from provision of borehole water, reconstructing of local market stores, giving instructional materials to students,” he said.

The lawmaker urged the youths to ensure that they engaged themselves in useful ventures, which would take the constituency to a progressive level rather than getting involved in social ills that would bring the name of the area to disrepute.

Aforka said that quality motions and bills that would aid the government to meet their needs would be championed by him and promised to make the areas feel the presence of government even the most remote parts of them.

“Our major source of livelihood remains farming, I will make efforts for accessible roads so that the farm produce would be better prized than before, farming must put food on your table,” he said.

He said that he would hold town hall meetings before embarking on any capital project because good governance was largely driven by transparency and accountability.

“I will achieve my goal by actively giving room for your participation in the process of governance through your contribution,” he said.

He said that he must be accountable for his actions and would always ask them on how best to represent them because they sent him there for a reason. (NAN)
