Rep. Dr. Gwaikolo further noted that before taking over as the district’s representative, a tour was done by his team, based on which a legislative agenda was drafted, and is been acted upon.

“We have come to carry on the commitment we have made to our people, in electoral district 9.When we took over, and even before taking over, we did a tour; on several occasions, in the district. We talked to communities; we talked to individuals, based on which we developed a legislative agenda, a campaign platform that was later transformed into a multiport legislative agenda.

We talked about health. Developing the health sector; that’s why we are working with an organization, and again, that’s why we are introducing some of these individual pillars that we are work with, we might introduce one or two accomplishments. This is not a full report! No! This is a special program, just to launch a special project.

But as we do so, we might touch on other things that we might have done in the past, based on the objective, based on the platform we developed.”

Representative Gwaikolo said.

Speaking in one tone, the citizens expressed excitement, and thank Representative Gwaikolo for such a rightful developmental initiative that will help ease the burdens on travelers, especially business people.
