The atmosphere in Dengi, headquarters of Kanam LGA was hilarious on Sunday 13th December, 2020 as chants of “PKK SAI DANMALIKI” rents the air, with another set of people; youths and women alike, received motorcycles, sewing, as well as grinding machines, as part of the constituency intervention program of the member representing Pankshin/Kanke/Kanam Federal Constituency, Rt Hon. Yusuf Adamu Gagdi.

Alongside the items enumerated above, hundreds of bags of fertilizer were distributed to beneficiaries, most whom are Ward Coordinators of the rep member from 36 federal wards across the three local government areas that sums up the constituency.

The items, which were made available as constituency intervention project of the lawmaker by Boarder Community Development Agency, was distributed as a way of empowering the beneficiaries by making them self sustaining.

Speaking at the distribution ceremony, Rt. Hon. Gagdi says the items distributed are not part of the 400 motorcycles, 400 grinding machines and 400 sewing machines he had earlier scheduled to distribute to his constituents on the 16th December, 2020. He said the items are already purchased and safely kept awaiting distribution at a grand reception that will have the attendance of the Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt. Hon Femi Gbajabiamila by the end of January 2021.

Hon. Gagdi maintains that the occasion will not be feasible on the 16th December, 2020 but rescheduled to between January 26th to 30th 2021, because of an international engagement that requires the attendance of the speaker and his humble self.

The lawmaker added that the occasion will also feature the commissioning of his constituency office, which is currently under construction in Pankshin, the Headquarters of PKK. He said because of the lack of a suitable office accommodation to house his constituency office, he has decided to buy a piece of land in a suitable location to construct his constituency office, which is currently under construction.

You will recall that on February 23, 2020 Hon. Gagdi had distributed water pumping generators, other agriculture materials as well as cash donations to individuals to start up petty trades, as a way of empowering his constituents.

He had also distributed palliatives thrice at the heat of the coronavirus pandemic, as a way of cushioning the effect of the pandemic on his constituents.

Not long ago, he had disbursed 45 million naira cash nonrefundable business capital to the business community in Kanam LGA and donated a well furnished storey building to the APC in Kanam LGA for its office accommodation.

This is not to mention the hundreds of youths that were empowered with job opportunities in various federal government agencies, as well as military and paramilitary organizations.

The tens of bills and motions so far sponsored by Rt Hon. Yusuf Adamu Gagdi in the discharge of his core legislative functions, as well as leading his committee members on oversight visits to all naval formations across the country, has qualified the member representing Pankshin/Kanke/Kanam Federal Constituency as an all round legislator who balances his lawmaking functions with constituency development.

Gagdi has become a reference point for legislative excellence in whom the electorate of PKK are well pleased.
