According to him, the operation of this policy has provided for the transfer of some appreciable level of policy formulation, political, financial and infrastructural development autonomy to the MMDAS.
This, he said, has ensured a relatively high level of development in terms of human resource and infrastructure in particular. Apart from this, the fact that the people are part of the promulgation of the very policies that affect them makes the system more beautiful and attractive, he added.
He also told the crowd that as DCE his number one priority would be to ensure an effective and reliable revenue generation system which according to him is the engine for growth and development. As a result, he appealed to the people to change their attitudes and be prepared to pay necessary taxes to ensure the rapid development of the District including ensuring good sanitation.
He pleaded with the people to exercise more patience, for issues of development is not an event but, a process and so with time all shall be well.
