An elected House of Representatives member for Ohaozara, Onicha and Ivo Federal Constitutency in Ebonyi state, Engr Livinus Makwe, on Saturday commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), for the peaceful conduct of elections in the state.
Mr Makwe was among those issued Certificate of Return by the electoral body on Thursday in Abuja.
He said the electoral body was fair to all political parties in the state during the election.
The federal Legislator who was full of thanks to his constituents for electing him, promised not to disappoint them.
“I promised during the campaign to attract more federal presence to the area and that I will pursue with doggedness once I am sworn in”.
“I will also work assiduously to ensure that my constituency is no longer marginalised in employment into federal government Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs as has been the case in the past”, he added.
Make also congratulated the Governor David Umahi on his victory during the governorship and state House of Assembly elections in the state.
He said: “There is no part of the state that has not felt the impact of the governor in one form or the other. The governor’s infrastructural transformation in the areas of road construction, education, health, agriculture, electricity, human empowerment and capacity building, etc. is second to none in the country today”.
“The governor’s achievement is more remarkable when one considers the fact that the state receives one of the least allocations from the federal treasury. So, Ebonyi people had no choice but to use their votes to tell him to continue the transformation of the state”, he said.
The House of Representative Member-elect also promised to work fully with the governor in moving the state forward.
