The elected members of the Niger House of Assembly on Friday pledged to run an open-door policy to ensure development.

The members-elect made the pledge in separate interviews after being presented with their certificates of returns by the state National Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) in Minna.

One of the members-elect, Mr Abubakar Gomna, (APC-Bosso), said that he would sustain the operation of running an open-door policy just as he did when he was the council Chairman of Bosso Local Government Area.

“As a representative of my constituent, I will improve on operating an open-door policy and come up with different legislations on issues affecting my people, especially on infrastructural development,” he said.

Alhaji Yusufu Dabban, (PDP-Lavun), said that as a member of the 9th Assembly, he would be fully committed to running an open-door policy by transforming the relationship between him and his constituents.

He promised to meet the immediate needs of his constituents such as provision of electricity, water, social amenities as well youths and women empowerment.

Alhaji Mohammed Haruna (APC-Bida North) and a third term member, said that the 10th Assembly would be very interesting being that it would consist of members from various political parties unlike in the past.

He pledged to continue to come up with legislations that would benefit his people, especially on development of critical infrastructure such as the construction of Minna-Bida Road.

Similarly, Malam Mohammed Sani, (APC-Tafa), said that his people should expect the desired change they yearned for.

He said that he would work with the council chairman to improve the internally generated revenue of the council.

The only female member-elect, Mrs Afiniki Dauda (APC-Gurara), promised full representation of the female folks and protection of their rights.

She said that through her performance, most local governments would be looking forward to getting  more women to represent them.

Mr Murtala Adamu Badaru, (APC-Suleja) , expressed appreciation to the people of his constituency for their support to him during the election and promised them good  and open-door representation.
