Newly-elected Member of Parliament (MP) for the Kumbungu Constituency Moses Amadu Yahaya admits that lobbying is his strength and he will capitalize on that to draw more investors into the constituency.
“I have been lobbying for many years so I don’t think it will be a problem for me,” the Convention People’s Party (CPP) MP told our correspondent in an exclusive interview on Thursday.
Talking about his victory, Mr Yahaya noted that it came as a shock to everybody since little chance was given to a candidate of the CPP.
“It has been a great victory and everyone is pleased about that. It has shocked the whole world because no one gave us a dog’s chance to annex this seat,” he told Edward Kwabi.
He observed that he will fight to get boreholes drilled for communities in the constituency.
“Then [I will ensure] construction of schools and then provision of potable water to the communities especially pipe-borne water,” he said.
“But what I will do is continue the work I am doing and adding more vim to this work,” he added.
He also promised not to let going into Parliament late affect his commitment to work for constituents.
“You will be surprised that at the end of my tenure in the next three years you will see what Moses has done in Kumbungu.”
Mr Yahaya polled 13,029 votes to beat closest contender Alhaji Imoro Yakubu Kakpagu in a by-election held April 30, 2013.
