The Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representative, Ahmed Idris Maje Wase has said his constituency has received more federal government present under the ruling All Progressives Congress ,APC ,than any of the administration since the return of democracy in Nigeria .
Speaking to our correspondent on phone while responding to allegations of non- performance , abandonment and neglect by his constituents, Wase debunked that the allegations are baseless and lack credibility.
The member Representing Wase Constituency in the House of Representative is currently in the eyes of the storm as his Wase Constituency accused him of total neglect and abyssal failure as a representative.
It was gathered that APC members and those of the opposition party in Wase are complaining bitterly that they have been sidelined and abandoned by their member, Ahmed Wase for not giving consideration to the some form of support to ease the suffering of the people, things like road network connecting Wase and the surrounding communities like Wase to Lamba Wakkat district, including Wase the Council’s headquarter.
A political leader in the area, Dahiru Dauda said, “to my understanding and the information available to us ,the member representing us could only start two streets, while roads in neighbouring Duwei ,Kumbur ,Salwai to Wase are all tarred and primary schools in Kadarko district have been renovated.
Dauda explained further that the people of Wase accused the Deputy Speaker Idris Wase of total negligence and abandonment of his constituency in spite of the overwhelming support accorded him to represent them at the lower chamber in the National Assembly.
He said, Wase, one of the most vulnerable and rural communities in Plateau state, is yearning for road networks to link them with other communities in the state.
In his response, the Deputy Speaker said the tremendous development taking place in Wase federal constituency is something’s else ,”I have proving to all my distractors in Wase wrong with the overwhelming support and projects going on “,he stressed.
Hon Maje Wase explained that “as a middle political leader I have done enough by introducing meaningful projects and programmes in North-Central to stimulate growth and development to attract investors which is still ongoing.”
Wase refuted that he never flagged-off Angwan Rimi road construction but introduced many ongoing roads network in Plateau state which is close to completion in the state .
