​Residents urged to take care of infrastructure

Nali made the call after inspecting the Laloki and Brown River bridges today.

“Infrastructure like this cost a lot of money,” he stressed.

“And one thing that I will ask from the Central people and others is to look after these infrastructure and forget about the ‘no care’ attitude.

“We must take ownership of such and make it our priority to look after them because it takes a lot of time and effort to come up with such infrastructure.”

He called on the people to report any acts of vandalism.

Works Minister satisfied with job
