Motivated, broad-minded and sociable.

Construct new roads and improve existing ones. Roads are the basic prerequisite for development of a community.

Concentrate on farm mechanization to modernize farming. Rural market places would be established with facilities to support input supplies, cold storage and refrigerated trucks to link producer and consumers.

Accord the highest priority to youth employment and initiate programmes to engage youths in productive activities. Promote easy access to finance for youth including access to loans without collateral.

I believe our election process is one of the finest in the region. However, I am uncertain for need of membership registration.

I have spent most of my time in my community, so I understand the problems faced and solutions needed by my community. As a young community’s representative I would better understand the youth problems.

Roads are basic prerequisite for growth and development of a nation. I would improve existing roads and construct new ones. Quality roads will reduce prevailing social and economic disparities.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?

Social media is a new platform. It has helped me interact with my constituents conveniently. I often convey my messages through social media on time. However, many manipulated news are being circulated through it creating disharmony within community. I believe social media is boon as well as bane to me.
