By Henry Ibya, Makurdi

Member representing Tarka State Constituency in the Benue State House of Assembly, Mark Clinton Manger, has assured the people that with the collaboration of their sons and daughters like the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, his wife a member of the House of Representatives for Gboko/Tarka Federal Constituency and others in government positions development would never elude communities in the area. 

Manger who gave the assurance weekend, when he spoke at Nyagber day celebration where he was honoured by the people of Mbanyagber of Tarka Local Government Area in Benue State for effective representation in the Assembly, lamented that the people have not had a fair share in terms of development despite contributions of their son the late JS Terka; a nationalist who fought for the independence of the country.

He expressed optimism that with Akume in his present position, a lot of ills melted on the people of Tarka would be corrected, describing him as a kind-hearted person who has meant well for his Mbakor people and the entire state, and called on the people to pray for the SGF, himself and the member representing Gboko/Tarka federal constituency in the National Assembly Regina Akume to succeed.

The Tarka State Constituency Assembly member told the people that he has been in touch with the SGF who has informed him that very soon construction work would commence on the road from Damkor-Tomatar in Mbachough and Mbalahan communities, adding that they equally spoke on the issue of electricity.

He said he was equally in touch with Rep. Regina who has bought a borehole drilling vehicle with plans to drill as many boreholes as possible to make water available to the people.

In a remark, Elias Audu, representing Gwer East State Constituency who accompanied the honouree to the occasion described his colleague Manger as an active member of the house who is making meaningful contributions on issues of development.

On his part HRH Terkimbi Agishi who spoke on behalf of the traditional institution, assured the honouree of their support to enable him succeed, especially that the people of Mbanyagber were having an elective position since the creation of Tarka Local Government Area for the first time.
