North West Regional Assembly Votes Community Centred 2023 Budget

Prof Fru Angwafo III

Regional councillors of the North West have voted a budget to improve on the livelihood of the community in 2023.

Focusing on palaces, museums and handicraft centres that have almost suffered a great deal since the armed conflict erupted in the North West will receive substantial support in 2023. Also, trees will be planted in sacred forests across the region. Some of these forests like that of Awing suffered from illegal logging as substantial amounts of the tress were fell by armed separatists.

Young persons in the region will be allowed to take part in High intensive Labour activities (HILA). The youths will be prepared and trained to better manage and invest the money gotten from the project so they become self sustaining.

In the domain of secondary education, the council seeks to construct an auto mechanic workshop at GTHS Funding and also rehabilitate the school.
