2 min

The Special Adviser (SA) on Media and Publicity to the Senator representing Cross Central Senatorial District, Modlin Odu has said that, over 500 vulnerable families in the senatorial district have been penned down to benefit from Palliatives.


Sen. Prof. Sandy Ojang Onor was inaugurated into office precisely on June 12, 2019. Of the 11 months and two weeks he has spent in office as Senator representing Central Senatorial District, 8 months have been spent judiciously in moving and supporting valid motions; a primary responsibility, one of which led to the deployment of a Mobile Police Squadron to Boki following the Insecurity in the area and his call for Police Barracks. The remaining 4 months have been affected by the global pandemic which halted activities everywhere in the World until recently when measures of managing the deadly virus was introduced.

-500 vulnerable families have been penned down to benefit from Palliatives. This is away from the ones who have received cash assistance on individual basis since the Covid-19 pandemic broke and it is not part of his duties as a Legislator but out of love and concern for his constituents.

Construction and maintenance of roads and culverts, building of schools, hospitals, job creation e.t.c are issues to be moved in motions and captured in budgets by a Legislator but the responsibility of executing all these rest solely on the Executive Government. Any legislator that can do any or all of these does so based on his or her personal capacity.

Importantly, Sen. Sandy Ojang Onor like every other Senator voted into office in 2019 is not operating on allocation from budgets yet. No matter how fertile a woman is, she needs a man to impregnate her if she must bear a child. We are disposed to being held accountable and constructively criticized in other to serve better.
