After winning another term in office Hilary Onek, the incumbent Lamwo County Member of parliament, says that he has his sight fixed on improving the quality of Education and increased access to better health services.
Onek says that his target is to ensure that the teacher to pupil ratio in which is at about 200 pupils to one teacher is reduced to the recommended 45 pupils to one teacher.
He says also says that he will ensure more classrooms and teachers houses are constructed over his next term in office.
Onek says that most teachers stay several miles away from their schools, which affect their performance because they spend longer hours traveling to and from school.
Additionally Onek says that he plans to lobby for the construction and staffing of health centers in the districts. He says several health centre two facilities in the district are non functional and wants them staffed and restocked with drugs.
Onek says that each village should at least have a health centre II to provide services to the residents.

Cue out: "...increase and properly manned"//
Other issues he intends to address during his third term are improving household incomes, ensuring that power supply is extended to all villages in Lamwo and setting small scale industries.
Despite the show of commitment by the legislator, not all the people of Lamwo are amused.
Grace Gyramia from Padibe East wonders how Onek can promise to do more development this time he failed in the last 10 years.
Giramia says people of Lamwo deserve better from the NRM government than mere lip service. She challenges Onek to start implementing his programs instead of waiting for the next term of office to begin.
Mzee Jacinto Ogwoka a UPC diehard is also not convinced that Hilary Onek will deliver this time. Ogwok believes the MP has been in office long enough to provide better services.
He says it is the same usual lies NRM members peddle to win the support of the population, which they fail to fulfill after being elected.
