According to Mayor Mbigha Felix “We realized so many projects last year such as the construction lf classrooms, construction of hospitals, donation to schools and extending electricity in some remote areas which did not have electricity.”



He concluded by extending appreciation to the government for always supporting the council realise projects despite the fact that the council is unable to efficiently raise revenue. The population was not left out for their undoubted support to the council in the realization of projects, and called on all to respect their civic duties in paying taxes for the council to be able to realize more projects.

“I want to seize this opportunity to plead with them that for those who are supposed to contribute to the council by paying their taxes she do so so that we can use those taxes to develop our community because we solely depend on their taxes”
