    Federal Lawmaker representing Gashaka, Kurmi and Sardauna Constituency, Hon David Abel Fuoh has raised a motion to connect his constituents with the national grid.

    David during the Tuesday plenary presided by the Speaker, Rt Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, said the Kashibilla hydropower plant makes it easy for the Federal Government through the Yola Distribution Company to link his constituency with the national grid.

    The motion was raised under matters of public urgent interest by the member, saying that the people have never been connected with the national grid hence the urgent need to do so.

    This according to him, is in view of the robust power sector of the Federal Government and this will go a long way in revamping the socio-economy nature of the three local government areas in Taraba State in the area of education, health and agriculture.

    While raising the motion, David enjoined other lawmakers to support the motion because of the hidden potentials it will unravel to the entire Taraba State.

    Speaker Femi commended the timely motion initiated by Fuoh as it is people and community driven.

    Our reporter in an interview chat asked David  why he thought of that motion.

    According to him, electricity has become the hub of economy driver that drives and attracts investors from all works of life, stressing that if there can be steady electricity, his constituency will have more opportunities for irrigation farming and businesses of all sorts will also thrive.
