He said since it is impossible for the people to kill all mosquitoes that transmits the disease, it is imperative to prevent contact with mosquitoes through the use of treated nets.
Dr. I. D said since his people doesn’t have resources to procure insecticides, hence the need to come to their aides with treated nets and drugs.

Gyang who he said is a vibrant, humble and effective leader. He asked the Constituents to thank God for having such representative who is a lover of the poor masses who wants to see the poor smile. He said Dr. I. D. Gyang has been having sleepless nights to lobby for such gesture and plans are already underway to provide wheelchairs, laptops to students to help them in their research works, boreholes and others. He charged the people not to vote for people who don’t care about them, their health and welfare. He said Dr. I. D. Gyang should be supported in his future political ambitions for more democratic gains. He told the people not to rush as the drugs, treated nets and delivery kits are sufficient.
