Majority of politicians are seen or regarded as looters of our economy and the brain behind Nigerians woes as it concerns the dwindling of our economy. It is believed that just a few are in the right track to bring the dividends of democratic governance to their various constituencies. Some corrupt politicians see it as an avenue to embezzle public funds thereby making the constituents underdeveloped and impoverish them the more. Though this is also an avenue where the constituents use to either recall, or vote against their representatives. It also serves as a score card. The representative of Nsukka/Igbo-Eze South in the hallow chamber, has been there for his people as his constituency project is felt from all the constituents. One of the unique features of our democratic journey is the concept of constituency projects; the aim is to spread development to all the nooks and crannies of the country, through the intervention of the people’s representatives in the national House of Assembly. It has been noticed during the “endsars” that some selfish representatives be it Rep member or the senator do stock what is meant to empower their constituents as part of Federal Government’s efforts to alleviate poverty. The Independence Corrupt Practice and other related offences Commission (ICPC) should sit up to punish all the corrupt members so that it will serve as a deterrent to others. The researcher adopted the use of phenomenological method in this work.
