“Time allowing, I would have been everywhere Commisioning every Project.”
Central Province -Republican President of Zambia H.E Mr Edgar C Lungu has stated that this year has seen him commission several projects across the country that will benefit the Citizens across the board.

” All those saying ‘are we going to eat roads’ should know basic economics.” He said.
And the President had a messege for those who were saying he was commissioning too many projects including small ones which they viewed as insignificant.
He stated that no Project was too small to be commissioned or witnessed by him.
He stated that if it was possible for him to be every where and commission all projects he would gladly do so even if it meant commisioning just a toilet .
” Unfortunately there is only one President and I can only be in so many places at the same time. But if time allows, ill be everywhere.” He said.
And The Head of State said that he was delighted to be commisioning yet another project, this time the Lusaka – Ndola dual carriage way which was the biggest road project in Zambia’s History with vast economic benefits for the entire country.
“Lusaka – Ndola dual carriage way will reduce traffic congestion and road traffic accidents.”
” We are interested not only in building wealth for the citizens but also in saving lives . Road saftey is a huge component of public health. Therefore this Project is a very Important one.” He said.
