For Maintaining Sanitation and Security WARDC Councilor Applauds CSV

The Seating Council of ward 377 under the ticket of the main opposition, All Peoples Congress (APC) at constituency 106, Mr. Mohamed Billa Kanu has applauded over thirty two Community Safety Volunteers (CSV) and other youth groups for their prompt and kind participation towards sustaining sanitation and security at the Lumpa environs, New London, Koya Chiefdom in the Western Area Rural District Council (WARD C) through the Local Police Partnership Board (LPPB).

The Local authority made these applauds during the recent National Cleaning Exercise at the Waterloo 555 Multi-purpose Market and Lorry Park on 6th April 2019, to mark the one year achievement of the New Direction of President Maada Bio.

In his statement during the cleaning exercise ,the seating councilor of ward 377, Mr. Mohamed Billa Kanu said he has always being responsive to youths activities in WARD C and beyond for ensuring effectiveness with national development projects nothing that the works of CSV have contributed a lot in improving sanitation and security issues.

Mr .Kanu commended CSV for giving their best in terms of community participation in providing the needed human resource adding that LPPB initiative across the country was a laudable venture by the SLP then but now needs to be reviewed especially with regards to funds as according to him CSV still faced huge challenges with regards to moral boosting, logistics, ID Cards, protective gears, and even T-Shirts were not enough for CSV.He recalled that before now, Council has provided over 100 shovels, some  wheelbarrows , and other essential cleaning agent for youth groups in a move to fast track the transporting  of waste materials.

He reiterated further that with the arrival of dust bins (dotin box) at his own ward in 377, Sewage wastes in the 55 market would soon be a thing of the past because according to him, council has been able to empty most of the waste Bins on a daily basis with the help of CSV as key players in the monitoring process.

He appealed to other young people to come onboard to emulate the same as their colleagues   are doing now and assures council’s continual  unflinching support to give WARD C a facelift in the not too distance future. He assured the people that, with the hardworking leadership of Chairman Kashor J.Cole and Hon. Mohamed Kabia of constitution 106, the sky would be the limit for WARD C improvement and Transformation.

In his own part, the Head of Zone 8 CSV, Lamin Kamara said they have been working relentlessly to protect the community from senseless crime rate and hygiene improvement but they are a bit disappointed with the management of the LPPB for not providing the needed support in terms of funds and logistics.

Before now, he said, they have key logistics, T-Shirts, but no identification cards to protect them during night patrols adding that the Waterloo Police Division is neglecting the work of CSV at zone 8.

“We are not only contributing to national cleaning exercise but we do protect the communities also during night hours with robust patrolling as CSV who are determined to reduced crime rate in WARD C “, Mr. Kamara noted.

He appealed to the Waterloo Police Division, Private Business People, Community stakeholders and the Western Area Rural District Council for intervening promptly ahead of the fast approaching raining season.
