The Nanumba South District in the Northern Region has held people’s forum at Bondalikadibu, the area council, to engage the grassroots in the decentralization process.

The forum afforded the residents an opportunity to get to know the workings of the district assembly, where it also outlined its planned programmes and activities intended to be executed across the district.

Participants asked questions about the workings of the district assembly and how developmental projects are distributed  to the various communities.

In his speech, the District Chief Executive for Nanumba South, Natogmah Munkaila, said the district is working to extend development to the various communities and appealed to the grassroots to get involved in initiating the projects so they can own them.

He urged citizens to pay taxes while assuring that his administration will focus on improving revenue mobilisation in order to be able to meet the rising cost of waste management and other services.

Mr Munkaila mentioned some of the programmes the government would roll out within its four-year mandate which would benefit the people, and urged them to embrace them to ameliorate their plight.

“The planting for food and jobs, one village, one dam, the free Senior High School and the expansion of Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) project to cover more communities.

Under the planting for food and jobs, M Munkaila revealed that three dams would be constructed in three villages in the district in 2018. –citifmonline.com
