Nalikwanda Member of Parliament Professor Godfrey Lungwangwa has called on people in his constituency to ensure that they are registered as voters in readiness for the forth coming general elections.
Speaking at the newly reconstructed Lwatembo basic school in Nalikwanda constituency of Mongu district over the weekend, Prof. Lungwangwa told the people that voter registration was cardinal as it will help retain President Rupiah Banda in power.
Prof. Lungwangwa urged those who missed the voter registration exercise last year to take advantage of the on-going voter registration currently being undertaken at Mongu Municipal Council.
Professor Godfrey Lungwangwa expressed gratitude at the various developmental projects being undertaken in his constituency. He said his constituency has in the last four years seen tremendous development saying that government has reconstructed and relocated seven basic schools and constructed three new High schools namely Nakanya, Nalwei and Lukalanya.
Prof. Lungwangwa who is also Transport and Communications Minister said both the seven Basic and three High schools have reached an advanced stage adding that once completed, each basic school will consist of 1 X 2, and 1 X 3 classroom blocks, 5 teachers houses and 16 ablution blocks and that each school will be supplied with solar power .
Meanwhile, the Professor has assured people in his constituency and the country at large that government will put furniture and deploy teachers in all the schools that are being constructed.
He said it was lack of reasoning for politicians to claim that government has constructed a lot of schools that will not be furnished in order for them to gain political mileage.
Prof. Lungwangwa said that any reasonable person knows that construction is a first step of development adding that anything else comes after.
