Copperbelt Province Permanent Secretary Bright Nundwe has called on government departments in the region to be prudent in the use of public resources in order to facilitate the delivery of quality development services to the people.

Mr. Nundwe said Copperbelt Province is the economic hub of the country as it has great potential to contribute more to the national gross domestic product (GDP) than it does currently.

He was speaking in Ndola yesterday during his first address to civil servants since his transfer from Muchinga Province in the same capacity.

“Copperbelt is a delicate and sophisticated province. We need to be prudent and exercise good behaviour in the manner we utilise public resources. I want to see order in the province,” he said.

Mr. Nundwe further said he will not tolerate civil servants who will exhibit negative attitude towards work noting that this is what has been affecting service delivery to the people in the province.

He stated that he would like to see civil servants exercising dedication to their work and the provincial administration hierarch.

The Copperbelt Province PS said this will enhance unity of purpose in the province.

Mr. Nundwe added that there was need to clean up all districts in the province in order to prevent outbreaks of water borne diseases such as cholera.

“Let us clean our districts so that we prevent cholera and also reduce on the burden of the President in addressing this problem. It is therefore necessary that we get back to cleaning the districts,” he emphasised.

And Copperbelt Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has urged civil servants to support Mr. Nundwe so that his office can deliver to the expectation of the people and the appointing authority.

Mr. Lusambo said government was implementing a lot of projects in the Copperbelt Province.

He said government departments should therefore work together and ensure desired development is achieved.
