Senator Stella Oduah, the lawmaker representing Anambra North at the Senate, says she will sustain the fight against poverty in her constituency.
Oduah gave the assurance when she featured on News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum in Abuja.
She said that it was the desire to uplift the living standard of her constituents that made her venture into politics, and assured that she would do her best to ensure that the desire was accomplished.
The lawmaker added that the situation was so bad that many of her constituents lived in hopelessness, with no electricity, no access to school, hospital and potable water, among other things.
She said that unless something was done to bring an end to the plight of the people, there would be no future, particularly for the youth of the area.
According to her, children in my constituency travel some distance to go to school or sit under trees to get education in order to get out of poverty.
Oduah said she had embarked on many projects to impact positively on the people in various communities in the area.
She added that there were also those who ever academically inclined and were also benefiting from her scholarship programme.
Oduah said that her focus was on human capital development, infrastructural development and women empowerment in her constituency.
