<p class="">I want to appeal to you that in re-examining the electoral framework, you should please start early and conclude work in good time, well ahead of the 2023 general elections, he said.</p>

<p class="">The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the commission issued certificates of return to all elected members of the House of Representatives across the country.</p>

<p class="">Some of the elected Reps speaking in an interview with NAN after collecting the certificates, promised to give their best in representing their people.</p>

<p class="">Mr Ahmed Maje, 4th time member of the house, who represents Wase federal constituency in Plateau under the APC, commended his constituents for re-electing him, describing his re-election as an indication of the confidence the people of his constituency have on his capacity to represent them.</p>

<p class="">Maje pledged better representation for his constituents and Nigeria at large when the ninth house finally resumes.</p>

<p class="">I have represented my people and the interest of Nigerians, giving them the best and they should not expect less this time around.</p>

<p class="">Haven served for three times and now re-elected for the fourth time, I will do better. My people re-elected me because they believe that I will do much more this time around.</p>

<p class="">I want to say that there will be better dividends in terms of whatever democracy can offer the people, Maje said.</p>

<p class="">Mr Yemi Adaramodu, elected to represent Ekiti South federal constituency, in Ekiti state under APC, commended the people of his constituency for re-electing him.</p>

<p class="">Adaramodu described his election as a call to greater responsibility, saying: I see my election as a challenge to represent my constituency, state and Nigeria very well.</p>

<p class="">He saidyouths and women empowerment, infrastructure development would be his priority.</p>

<p class="">I am going to ensure that empowerment of our youths and women are given priority in NASS.</p>

<p class="">I am going to study the budget of the federal government to see where we can engender more development for our people in Ekiti and my constituency.</p>

<p class="">Adaramodu pledged to partner with the state government and other stakeholders to bring development to Ekiti state.</p>

<p class="">Mrs Blessing Onuh, elected member, Otukpo/Ohimini federal constituency of Benue (APGA), said she was honoured bybeing elected.</p>

<p class="">Onuh pledged to empower women and ensure that children have access to education.</p>

<p class="">I will also empower the youth to be off the streets and shun violence, she said.</p>

<p class="">Onuh, the daughter of aformer Senate President, Sen. David Mark, also pledged to strike a balance between law-making and constituency projects for her people.</p>

<p class="">She stressed the need to elect more women into law-making, saying we should begin to make laws that favoured women.</p>

<p class="">In working with my colleagues, I am going to be looking into women empowerment, because any society that leaves women behind is not ready for development yet, she added.</p>
