Newly elected Nigerian lawmaker, Musa Bagos has donated a hand-pump borehole to Lamingyel village, a remote community in Jos East Local Government Area, Plateau State.
The community previously shared drinking water source with livestock, it was learnt.
Mr. Bagos, the member elected to represent Jos South/Jos East constituency at the Nigerian House of Reps delivered the alternative water source last week Thursday, less than a week to his inauguration.
“I have never heard of someone who is yet to be sworn into office sponsoring a project,” said a female grassroots politician, Mrs. Sarah Agog at the commissioning of the project.
“It shows that he actually contested this election to do more for the people,” said Mrs. Agog.
Mr. Bagos has made several more donations even before he run for the parliamentary seat, making his Party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) proud.
“We are proud and confident of our choice of Hon Bagos to represent us,” Mr. Dembi Azi, the PDP Chairman, Lamingyel said during the project launch.
“We are confident that Bagos will represent us as a strong voice and that he will do more projects in this constituency,” added a former State lawmaker, Mr. Isaac Arin.
The new borehole provided by Mr. Bagos will bring relief to the villagers, and also preserve their health to contribute to national economic growth, spokesperson of Lamingyel village, Mr. Francis Gimba said.
Mr. Bagos is expected to be sworn in along with other elected representatives Tuesday, at the National Assembly, Abuja.
