The noise from the singing, dancing and chanting of APC slogans was deafening as supporters of aspirant Kembe were shouting at the top of their voices whilst aspirant Madam Zainab Timbo aka Jajah and other party members were making preparations for the meeting.
The supporters turned down the request made by the former Head Man, Alhaji James Slowe, for calmness so they could arrange the agenda for the big meeting.
‘’APC nor to violence and noise party,” Jajah told both her supporters and those of her opponent aspirant Kembe. She called on APC supporters to campaign with tolerance and avoid hate speeches that can create violence and unrest in society. “APC say no to violence,” she further told them, adding that politics should be played decently for the good of the party and the country.
She stated that as a business woman, she will improve on education and promote tourism if she is awarded the party symbol and voted for as Member of Parliament for the constituency on 7 March, 2018.She promised to bring in investors from China, India and United Arab Emirates to construct hotels in the tourist attraction constituency. She pointed out that with her election as MP, the constituency would not be left out, noting that she will use both her national and international connections to make a difference as the wind of change in that constituency.
She also disclosed that she will create jobs for the young people, stressing that the neglected situation of youths gives her sleepless nights.
She maintained that she will bring in a lot of opportunities for the young people that will occupy them and discourage them from engaging in petty thieving, drug abuse and violence.
She concluded that she is going into the race because the people of the constituency have called on her to represent them in Parliament and help emancipate them from the neglect they are suffering from.
Aspirant Kembe could not comment as he declined from being interviewed on the grounds that he was busy at that moment.
