MIA Begins Legislative Caucus Dialogue In Bong
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, May 30 (LINA) - The Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) Monday commenced a two-day dialogue of the Legislative Caucus and local leadership of Bong County.

Speaking at the official opening of the dialogue in Gbarnga, Internal Affairs Minister Dr. Henrique Tokpa said the dialogue is part of efforts by the ministry to ensure coordination and collaboration between the county officials and Caucus in the implementation of development projects in the various counties.

Dr. Tokpa said the dialogue is crucial because statistics has shown that there have been series of misunderstandings between and among leaders of the various counties in the usage of the social and county development funds.

He said the forum is also intended to discuss the possibility of drawing up a new County Development agenda that would reflect current challenges facing the decentralization program.

In remarks, Representative Prince Moye, who spoke on behalf of the Legislative Caucus, admitted that some of the decisions that were taken in the past did not reflect the actual needs of the people.

He also noted that there have been several unrealistic projects derived at the County sitting as a result of 'personal agenda' and lack of consultation with the citizens.

Moye hoped that the dialogue would engender a new paradigm shift that would strengthen government’s development programs across the county.

The dialogue is being attended by district commissioners, superintendents, assistant superintendents for development and fiscal affairs, the Legislative Caucus as well as the County Inspector, among others.
