Chima Azubuike, Gombe state.
Deputy chairman committee on solid minerals and Member representing Balanga Billiri Federal Constituency Gombe state Hon. Victor Danzaria, says the appointment of (36) thirty six aides is geared towards empowering youths and put food on their table.
Hon. Danzaria stated this on wednesday in an interview with Journalists in Gombe state.
According to him, this appointment is historic as it has never being done in Gombe as 80% of the selected persons will be paid through his take home while the others will be paid by National Assembly Commission.
He said the list was carefully selected so that a lot of people will gain employment and put food on the table.
“As the campaign was on we told our people that if they can’t put food on the table then there is a problem. The people were keenly selected. They were people we worked with. We decided this number so that a lot of people will gain employment and a lot will have food on their table. As you know this has never being done by any lawmaker in the state.
“There are few of them National Assembly Commission will pay but almost 80% their payment will come from my allowance. The people voted for me and am there because of the people, so why will I keep my allowance to myself” he said.
He noted that the appointment is not lopsided as it cuts across wards of the federal constituency and gender.
” The appointment is not lopsided in each ward I have a PA, house assembly constituency we have two Personal Assistant each and Special Assistants and there are four women. I call on people to start on certain, since you need to start something to perfect it” he added.
