Constituency Project is a core responsibility of every elected personnel. However, since there are no standard gauges to measure performances, it is safe to say many can get away with funds meant to cater for the constituency, payment of tution fees and obtaining free jamb forms provided by Dino Melaye to improve education Standard in the State. Dino’s Employment project into NDLEA, SUBEB, SURE-P, FIRS, CUSTOMS, and TEACHING SERVICES etc have been commended by Kogites at home and in the Diaspora. Electricity and Solar powered Motorized Borehole in about 15wards and various construction of roads, drainages and massive erosion control projects are but a few of Dino’s gleaming achievement within four(4) years at the lower chamber, For this reason, general believe is; he will achieve more if we are patient with him and put away side talks from oppositions who dont have the interest of the masses at heart.
