"President Buhari must fulfill electoral promises" - PDP Rep-elect

The lawmaker-elect for Ekiti North Federal Constituency 1, Mr. Kehinde Agboola, in the forthcoming National Assembly has promised to ensure that President Muhammadu Buhari fulfilled his promises to Nigerians.

He said Buhari must match his policies and actions with his electoral promises or risk rejection by Nigerians who were expectant of his administration’s performance.

Agboola of the Peoples Democratic Party said this during an interview in Ikole-Ekiti during his ‘Thank You’ tour to all the wards in the constituency where he donated a wheel chair to an indigene, Ayo Ayeni.

He opined that the trend of elections in the last few years had shown that people were ready to vote people into office based on their track records.

“There was clamour for change and it is here, but it should not be that it was merely used for political gains. There must be visible improvement in the welfare of the people of this country.

“President Buhari should fulfil all his promises to the electorate like making a Naira equal to a dollar, giving unemployed youths monthly stipend of N5,000, improved power supply among others.

“PDP members in the National Assembly will engage in constructive criticisms that will help our country to grow and realise her potential. Our party is not going to employ sheer propaganda to whip up needless sentiments.

“I want to believe when he was suggesting that he didn’t mean he would get there to tell us another story. We are waiting for immediate implementation of the social fund. We will support him to achieve that.”
Agboola added that he was in support of a reduction in the cost of governance, but advised Nigerians to be enlightened on how the system works.

On what the people of his constituency should expect, Agboola promised to surpass the records set when he was the local government chairman.
