According to the Municipal Chief Executive, his vision is to give the regional capital a facelift but that cannot be possible without the support and the blessing of the religious leaders.
“I am coming to introduce myself to you the leadership of the religious leaders in the municipality and to ask for your prayers and your support. The development of our municipality is it is not just the responsibility of the MCE but it is a collective responsibility that’s why it necessary for me to go around and let you, the religious leaders, know what I am doing and what I intend to do.”
Mustapha Sheriff Adam, who spoke on behalf of the Regional Chief Imam and the Zongo community called on the MCE to create access roads in the Zongo community for easy movement.
