National News

Newly inaugurated Senator Amos Yohana has told his Adamawa North Senatorial District people to expect responsible representation from him.

Amos Yohana who was inaugurated by the Senate on Wednesday October 25 after the Court of Appeal earlier last week declared him the authentic winner of the February 25 NASS general election, spoke on Friday as he landed in Yola on return from Abuja where he went for his inauguration as the newest member of the upper chamber of the National Assembly.

“Adamawa North Senatorial District should expect very responsible representation. They should expect that they have somebody who is there for them. They should know that they have somebody who will unite them to live in peace and have their desires properly addresses,” he told the newsmen who covered his return at the airport.

He stressed that he is in the Senate for the general good, and called on everyone, including his immediate successor, Senator Ishaku Abbo, to work with him.

He said he had never sought to serve his personal ego but the common good, reiterating, “Mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and the general good of the people should always supercede individual egos. We should work together because we are after all one people.”

He expressed commitment to work with Governor Ahmadu Fintiri to ensure that all the people in his district who suffered attacks by Boko Haram elements are properly settled to their normal livelihoods.

“The governor has already addressed most issues. Mine is to work with him to get our people properly resettled,” he said.
