Since the date of elections was announced by the President every event hosted by the PPP/C in Region Five and beyond has used the RDC vehicles to fetch people so as to get a crowd. I would like to remind the Chairman and REO of Region 5 that it is taxpayers’ money that is being used to purchase, maintain and fuel those vehicles, and they should stop using government vehicles and resources for the PPP/C election campaign.
Yes, I agree this was done in the past, but let us put an end to this abuse now. Recently the Region 5 RDC purchased a 32 seater bus, whose main purpose one suspects is to transport people to and from PPP/C meetings. Also it should be said that the Region 5 identification mark has been removed from the doors of the vehicles, so they cannot be identified as the property of the RDC. This is total eye-pass in relation to the residents of the region, and we are calling for it to stop now.
Under an APNU-AFC regional administration we will ensure that all the assets of the region are accounted for and moreover are used for doing the work of the people.
