No fewer than 35 tricycles have been commissioned to embark on free transportation services for constituents in Chikun/Kajuru Federal Constituency by candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Honourable Ekene Abubakar Adams.
The flag-off of the free transport scheme was held on Thursday January 31, 2019 at Gbagyi Villa in Kaduna metropolis.
Speaking at the flag off, the candidate, Honourable Adams said it was embarked upon to reduce the suffering of those in his constituency.
“Not even the ruling party has embarked on this. Wee are doing this to reduce the suffering of our people as a result of bad governance,” he said.
He announced that the free transport scheme is to begin with immediate effect.
“This scheme is to continue to thy Kingdom come, our peoples transportation problems will.
In an interview with newsmen, the Councillor of Sabon Tasha Ward in Chikun LGA said that such a magnitude of empowerment has never been witnessed.
He said that Ekene has set a pace and even those trying to emulate him cannot make such impact.
” He has been doing this since even before he though of delving into politics. We are not surprised, but believe he would do even more.
In an interview with newsmen, Ekene Adams said that giving back to the society is part of him.
” By this gesture, giving back to the less privilege is important. Its part of my quest to do this. It is never written on my forehead that I will be in the House of Reps but if I do, whatever for the people will go to them.
Those that got the cars are artistes or musicians in my constituency, so I am branding them.
” if elected, first thing I would look into is I security. I don’t see the incumbent as a threat, I believe the masses determine who wins. I was born in Kaduna South and I tell you, before 12,he is gone.
