President Edgar Lungu has called on the people of North-western Province to continue embracing one another, with love and unity.
President Lungu said people should ensure that they are all-embracing one another and focus on developing the country.
“There is a need to realise that all tribes and political parties are part of Zambia and should continue living as one, regardless of one’s political affiliation,” said President Lungu.
The Head of State said this upon arrival at Solwezi airport, in North-western Province, where he was scheduled to officially open the Expo Northwest Zambia 2019.
He expressed happiness that people in the Province were appreciating the one Zambia, One Nation motto.
President Lungu assured the people in the region that he will continue delivering the much-needed development, in order for everyone to benefit from the country’s progress.
He added that those complaining about the pace at which projects were being done should give him space to work.
Speaking earlier, Patriotic Front Provincial Chairman Jack Kungo said the party in the Province was happy with the initiative to hold an expo as it will open up the region to development.
Mr Kungo assured that the party in the region was intact and would remain intact and united, ahead of the 2021 elections.
And Provincial Minister Nathaniel Mubukwanu said the province was happy with the President’s commitment towards educating the girl child.
This was after he unveiled 110 girls who graduated from a mentorship camp organised by First Quantum Minerals where they were taught on delaying sexual debut and early marriages.
