Senator Kaipay Pushes For Cities Inclusion in National Budget

MONROVIA-Grand Bassa County Senator Jonathan Kaipay wants the inclusion of all cities across the county to be included in the national budget.

Senator Kaipay said  it is disheartening  for only Monrovia City Corporation  and  that of the Paynesville City Corporation  to be in  the national budget  with   the rest of the other counties  not included.

Speaking Tuesday  on the OK Fm , the Liberty Party  Lawmaker  disclosed  that  he will craft a bill  that will allow all  of the cities  to be included in the national budget.

According  to senator Kaipay ,  the government  is working  to improve  the local government  in  the various counties,  the government can begin with all county capital cities  in the national budget  while formulating ways  to include  the rest of the cities.

He further said the development of the country, especially at the local government sector should be inclusive through the national budget.

Senator Kaipay however used the interview to caution the government against paying local Government officials a salary that cannot make any impactful contribution to the wellbeing  of those local officials.

He said  the local officials like  commissioners , Town chiefs are playing vital role  in  the governing system  of the country  and  they need  to be dignify with  those necessity  that commensurate  to  the position.

Senator Kaipay however disclosed that he distributed solar lights   to two districts within Grand Bassa County.

According  to him, most of  the  time , he  is unhappy  with  the living condition  of  the people  within the rural part  of the country, especially  the lack  of  electricity.

He said most of the time  only  those  in Monrovia and other cities  are enjoying electricity  and those  in  the rural parts  of those county cities  for lacking  something  he said  the government needs  to get involved  in  to provide  such opportunity  to those citizens  in the rural areas  with solar lights  for now.
