The Senior Divisional Officer for Momo has lauded the mayor of Batibo for transparent management skills. Ngong Justin Dieudonne made the statement in Batibo today after councilors adopted the 2014 Administrative, Management and Stores Accounts overwhelmingly. According to the Senior Divisional Officer for Momo Division, “democracy is a reality in Batibo council”. He emphasized that Tanjoh Fridrick managed the council resources as a good family head. Ngong Justin Dieudonne also recommended that the council administrative and management account should be convivial given that the fight against poverty starts first from the council. And he concluded that all council deliberations should be submitted to the supervisory authority and councilors ahead of time before submission for deliberation and adoption. The Batibo administrative, management and stores accounts, it should be noted stood at FCFA 321.101.489 in income and FCFA 312.816.478 expenditures.
Quoting Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan who said that “nobody’s ambition is worth he blood of any Nigerian. The unity, stability and progress of our dear country is more important than anything else”, the mayor of Batibo called on the councilors to adopt Goodluck’s idea to their micro level. He urged those who spend time complaining on what has not been done well, those who sit, watch and do nothing to instill change for fear of creating conflict to sit up.
