The Nasarawa State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has urged its state lawmakers to live above board by engaging in constructive debate that would better the lives of the people of the state.
The state chairman of the party, Francis Orogu, gave the charge on Thursday when the executive members of the party paid a solidarity visit to the PDP lawmakers at the assembly complex in Lafia, the state Capital.
According to him, if the lawmakers impact positively on the lives of the people of their constituencies and the state at large, it would go a long way in selling the name of the party positively.
“Our mission is very simple; we are here to fraternise and to advice you.
“I want to call on you to be alive in your responsibilities as minority members by speaking for the voiceless in the state, but your criticism should be constructive.
“I urge you to continue to stand for the party at all times and to make positive impacts on your constituents in the interest of development.

“You should also continue to initiate good policies and programmes that will have direct bearing on the lives of your constituents and the state at large,” he said.
Mr Orogu also congratulated the lawmakers for their various victories at the tribunal and appeal courts respectively.
He assured the lawmakers of the party’s support to enable them succeed in the task ahead of them.
Earlier, Danladi Jatau, the lawmaker representing Kokona West, who is also the Minority Leader of the House, commended the party leadership for the visit, while assuring their lawmakers resolve not to fail in their responsibilities.
“We the seven members of this House from PDP extraction will never let the party down.
“We are united, focused, competent and we will not fail in our responsibilities by God grace,” he said.
