“I’ve been in politics long enough to know that information gap is a factor, so I opened an electronic constituency office to enable me get online and real time information about my constituents and what they need so as to know how and where to address them.
“And to God be the glory, it’s paying off and everybody is happy due to the access we have created, response that we have given and changes that we have brought to our people.
