Plateau State was recently rated the only state with National House of Reps members who have all sponsored bills on the floor of the House.

In the report by Daily Trust which lists 161 members who have never sponsored a bill, a Plateau Reps member, Edward Pwajok emerged one of the top three members with the highest number of bills out of the 299 members that have bills to their names.

One of the state NASS members representing Mangu/Bokkos constituency, Solomon Maren said their performances in the House are largely hinged on the needs assessment of their constituents.

In an interview, Maren said, "We have been doing this, studying the environment and trying to come up with a program to help the people.

"Even before I won elections, we have been concerned about the plights of the less privileged.

"We started with women in the community, village and hamlet and going out to the larger level extending on and on."

According to him, a lot of financial implications are involved in sponsoring bills but what drives them is the passion to serve the people.

He said, "We have roads, primary schools, electrification projects and other constituency interventions outside the constituency allowances.

"What comes to us as constituency allowances annually are not much compared to the things we have to do for our people at the NASS and the constituency level.

"What comes to us in Plateau as members is just about N105m annually per member which you have to split into various projects.

"All you have to do is say this one take N30m, this one N40m, this one N20m."

According to him, no Plateau reps member most of whom are first timers has less than 10 bills aside multimillion naira constituency interventions.

He however fears that concentrating on constituency projects could take one's attention away from lawmaking which is the primary job of the legislator.

He however craves the support and understanding of people in the discharge of his duties.
