A member of House of Representatives elect, Chief Benjamin Kalu has said his election into the green chamber of Nigeria’s National Assembly is a victory for his constituency, Bende.
He said this in an interview with ABN TV on his country home recently. The legal practitioner expressed his readiness to bring in new dynamics in the representation of his people in the best democratic principles. “I want to bring in new dynamics in representation, where the people will be in charge as to who represents them. The people are the boss. They are the ones who have the right to hire and fire. Base on that, I’m going to be very careful to make sure that their appraisal of my activities at the National Assembly will be a positive one” he said.
He vowed to institute a periodic interaction through a town-hall meeting with his people where he will showcase what he has been doing at the National Assembly. He described himself as a messenger with a message, saying he owe his people a duty.
He said his profession as a lawyer gives him the needed knowledge and preparation for the job of lawmaking. The founder Benjamin Kalu Foundation appealed to his colleagues in the business of politics to have a secondary source of income, saying this will enable them stay away from the temptation of pilfering the resources of the people.
He also appealed to the Nigerian youths to shun being used as tools for rancour and destabilisation at all times, saying it is inimical to their future.
Benjamin Kalu called on those who vied for the Bende Federal Constituency seat with him, especially the candidate of PDP to save his money from legal tussle in the contest his victory, insisting that he (Kalu) won him visibly in the debate and election proper, saying he will defeat him in court if he chooses to go, adding that he is ready and prepared to face him.
