The Member representing Barkin Ladi/Riyom Federal Constituency Plateau State, Hon.

He successfully presented the Bill on the floor of the House during the plenary session which was passed overwhelmingly.
The Bill was immediately committed to the committee of the whole and was adopted. The Bill is now ready for harmonization with the Senate before onward transmission to the President for assent.
When passed into Law by the President, the Commission will be charged with the responsibility to receive and manage Funds from allocation of the Federation Account for the Reconstruction and Rehabilitation of Roads, Houses and Other Infrastructural damages suffered by the Region as a result of the effects of the crisis in the region and has the propensity to create huge employment opportunities, address the humanitarian challenges faced by the displaced persons in the region which has suffered violent attacks/killings, tackle the ecological problems and other related environmental or developmental challenges in the North Central States.
The Lawmaker has again reiterated his commitment to providing people-oriented representation and making laws that will have direct impact to the people, Constituency, State, Region and Nation at large.
He praised God for sparing his life and restoring his health to enable him speak more on National issues. He appreciated the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Deputy Speaker, Minority leadership, the entire leadership of the house and his colleagues for their prayers and unflinching support during the time of the accident. He applauded his Constituents and well meaning Nigerians for their spiritual and moral supports.
