By Efa Sunday

A Cross River State House of Assembly aspirant (Boki 1) constituency, Mr. Fabian Okwajie, has said that “Governance should not be hinged on the basis of empowerment alone but rather it should be an investment ideology.”

Mr. Okwajie in this exclusive interview with CrossRiverWatch averred that, “Governance is not supposed to be an avenue where politicians will buy motorcycles and share to the constituents in the name of empowerment, but rather it should be about investment ideology. So that if such a person leaves office, people should be able to benefit from the antecedents of what he has been able to put in place.”

He further explained that : “Governance should not be a stomach infrastructure arrangement; it should be an investment plan that will yield more profit to the state and the people.”

According to him his motive for aspiring “is the need to bridge the unhealthy gaps created by the past representatives which has in turn hindered the economic development within the community.

“The idea behind my motive to represent the good people of Boki 1 State constituency is to ensure that the people are fully represented and effectively involving themselves in the politics of the State, and to ensure that the gap between the upper and lower class is breached.

“There is a disconnect between the leaders and the constituents. You can’t reach them, no assess. People should be able to have a close contact with their leaders, interact with them, and they in turn should be able to give account of their stewardship and the impact created on the lives of the people.” He affirmed.

Fabian concluded by stating that “my blueprint is centered on four major areas: education, agriculture, healthcare and legislation.”
