I COMMEND the PF Government for enacting a deliberate bill to start paying Councillors monthly allowances and increasing their sitting and subsistence allowances accordingly.
This is a very good governance policy and I hope will go a long way in enabling our civic leaders tour their wards and meet community members to foster development.
Councillors are a very important conduit in linking the Government to the people because they are supposed to always be in touch with the common people on the ground to know the community’s needs and in turn inform the Government. For that, the PF Government has realised this importance hence this enactment. I only urge the councillors not to fail us, hence failing the Govt.
