Like we all know that the house of assembly members are the lawmakers representing every constituency of this state and their to make laws for the state. We need them to act accordingly and do good stewardship of their works.

“What we need from them is accountability of public funds which they are in charge of. We plead that they do their jobs accordingly. We don’t want any forces to restrain them from doing their jobs.
