A man named Pirfa Durfa yesterday trekked a long distance of 200 kilometers from his village in Langtang south local government area of Plateau State in Nigeria’s north central to honor a National Assembly member Elect from his constituency.
The member elect Hon. Vincent Bulus was recently given victory by the Nigeria’s Court of Appeal which enabled him unseat the iconic daughter of the founding father of one of the strongest party in Nigeria and Africa, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), late Solomon Lar.
Solomon Lar was the father of the Beni Lar who had occupied the House of Representative seat for Langtang North and South federal constituency for 16 years, until the Appeal court sacked her on the basis that her political party is in constant disobedience of a court ruling, our correspondent reports.
Hon. Bulus became the new federal lawmaker as a result of the Appeal Court Verdict and has promised to surpass the record of Lar.
Durfa, however, said he trekked the long distance from his village to Jos, the city capital knowing that the good works Bulus did as a local government Chairman of Langtang South will be replicated beyond measures now that he is a federal lawmaker.
