–—Outgoing North-western Province Minister, Nathaniel Mubukwanu, has implored civil servants in the province to render necessary support to the incoming Provincial Minister, Dawson Kafwaya, in order to foster development.
Mr Mubukwanu emphasised that the newly elected, President Edgar Lungu, desires everyone to hit the ground and deliver development to the expectations of the people in this short period of his reign.
He said government has several priorities countrywide which include reducing poverty among the people and North-western Province is not exempted.
Mr Mubukwanu said as such government has made some substantial allocation of developmental resources to the province to try to address the people’s challenges.
He was speaking when he addressed provincial heads of government departments during the handing over of office to Mr Kafwaya in Solwezi last evening.
Meanwhile, Mr Kafwaya said he has come to work and would be expecting everyone to work with him as a team in delivering development to the people.
He said as Provincial Minister he would be interested in seeing results because President Lungu is anxious to see development in the country.
In a vote of thanks, Solwezi District Commissioner, Crispin Likando, said the province would miss Mr Mubukwanu because he greatly supported officers in executing their duties.
Mr Likando assured the in-coming minister that civil servants in the province will always be available to render support to him in providing service to the people.
Mr Mubukwanu has been transferred to Southern Province to replace Mr Daniel Munkombwe.
