Speaking at the Ground breaking ceremony, the Margibi senator elect, Emmanuel Nuquay appreciated the citizens of the towns for giving him a second chance to serve and assure the citizens total commitment as a developmental senator.
“Today we are here with friends and brothers and workmate so that we can rally around to do the Garmaymu bridge project. Besides the bridge project, I came in contact with Mr. Jonathan Lolo, chair for the mamba kaba youth who requested that we build a youth center for you people, so I told him I don’t want to lie to you because we are in an electoral process but let work together after the elections. So we are also here to raise money for the bridge and the youth center the both projects cost is USD 54,000.” He said.
