Region Six administration plans people-centred 2021 programme

Region Six Regional Chairman, Mr. David Armogan has said the 2021 work programme would be more focused on the people, to increase their access to services and enhance their lives. 

In an interview with DPI, he said this approach would ensure that the initiatives adopted provide solutions to the challenges across the Region. 

“We anticipate that the Government give us additional funds to make sure that a lot of the works that were identified to be done over the last few years that we could not get done, will be completed as well as our 2021 work plan,” he said. 

This is in keeping with President Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali’s vision to ensure that citizens countrywide can upgrade their lives. 

With this in mind, Mr. Armogan said the administration intends to align itself with this goal. 

“Every community has issues, and so we must address this whether it is the rehabilitation of roads, cleaning and clearing of the Region’s drainage system, maintenance of roads, buildings especially schools, which we identified as full. We are now looking at either extending or even building new schools,” the Regional Chairman said. 

There are also plans for infrastructural works in many of the Region’s new housing schemes. Residents within these communities will see the establishment of schools, playgrounds and cultural facilities to foster well-rounded individuals. 

As it relates to the health sector, Mr. Armogan said the Region has a lot of work ahead to expand and improve the delivery of quality, safe and affordable health care services.

This includes the timely procurement of medicationsmedical tools, and equipment to ensure doctors and nurses could work in a conducive environment.
