THE nephew of outgoing MP for Fataleka Steve Abana has urged voters in the constituency to vote wisely in the November 19 elections.
Billy Abana, who was the first born of Steve Abana’s brother Billy Buga, made the comments, claiming not much development has happened in the constituency in the last eight years.
Billy said the people of Fataleka should by now measure the performance of their member of parliament for the past eight years.
“We had enough of copper projects, solar projects and providing shipping transport to take death bodies home,” he said.
“These are projects that were already made available with their funds. But what about the other millions of dollars?
“What were the money spent on. Can any body from Fataleka tell me any good project that the people of the constituency benefited from and that their livelihoods have changed for the better?” Billy questioned.
He called on their people of east Fataleka to vote for someone new and who has the vision for their constituency because they have already seen what the current one has done.
Billy said he is not afraid to tell his uncle (Steve Abana) that their family will not vote for him again this coming general election due to the kind of leadership he displayed over the past terms in parliament.
“We need good roads, social services that have long term benefits for our people and not things like solar or copper that made people’s life even harder when trying to build their homes and maintain their solar lamps.
“It actually makes people more dependent than being independent,” Billy added.
Meanwhile, he said his family at Forau would not vote again for Steve Abana since nothing has been done and they feel embarrassed as family members of the outgoing MP to see him serving his own personal interest than the interest of his people and constituency.
