Represented by the state Commissioner for Works, Adams Bulus Lekshak, Governor Mutfwang said his administration would do everything possible to ensure the success of the mass housing units while promising to construct access road leading to the estate

“Usually in the developed world, when you want to start a project like this, there must be a very good road network before building the houses. I have seen the nature of the roads and in no distant time, we are going to mobilise to address the road needs of this housing project,” the governor assured.
