HOUSE of Representatives candidate for the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, in the Bomadi / Patani Federal constituency, Dr Chris Ekiyor, has challenged the People’s Democratic Party, PDP candidate and incumbent representative of the constituency, Mr Nicholas Mutu to a media debate.

Ekiyor who  fielded questions from newsmen in his country home in Patani, Patani Local Government Area, Delta State, yesterday, said  that political parties were the platform through which candidates could aspire to serve the people.

He maintained that governance was about the provision of services to the people irrespective of the political party on which platform representatives of the people emerge, adding  “politics is about the people and governance is for the people.

“It is in this light that I challenge my senior brother and friend, who is a fourth term seeking legislator on the platform of the PDP to a media debate to enable us enlighten our people on our plans for them in the next four years as candidates of our different political parties,” he said.
