The race for Wajir East parliamentary seat has got more competitive with the latest entry of Ahmed Mohamed Adan alias Fujo into the race. He becomes the fourth serious aspirant to join the race and the career teacher who has been in the education for more than 25 years will be one of the candidates to watch.
The current principal of Wajir High School has unveiled his dream of taking up the position. Fujo, who holds a degree in literature and masters in business administration from Kenyatta University, promises to apply fair leadership acquired from his long term teaching experience, and his main pitch is that he is the best candidate of all those running who believes in and has striven to instill the virtue of fairness to all.
The 43-year-old career educationist critically highlights the need to attend to the interests of residents in this most cosmopolitan consitituency in the entire Wajir County. "If I have fairly maintained students from all walks of life, and nurture them to become responsible men and women without regard to their ethenic background, then this gives me the experience and skills necessary to serve the people as their MP," the aspirant told this website during an interview.
Seen as an issue-oriented leader, Fujo leaves a distiquished career as the the immediate former principal of the best and the oldest national school in the county. He has previously served in different educational assignments and his manifesto places free education for students as a top priority, in addition to peace and economic development.

Asked on which party ticket he would use to contest during the forthcoming elections, Fujo told this website that he had not committed to any party but was inclined to join the Jubilee Party. He, however, indicated that he would buy time to make the decision untill some "binding factors" get cleared, though he did not mention what these were.
