Somaliland vice President Hon Abdurrahman Abdillahi Ismael (Sayli ) earlier today presided over a ceremony which saw the opening of ten new tarmac roads in Hargeisa in four precincts out of the five administrative precincts of Hargeisa city council.
Hon Saylici cut the tape to more than ten new tarmac in Kood-bur, Ahmed Dhagah, Gacan Libah and Mahmoud Haybe precincts in a ceremony officiated by Hargeisa City Council which has for the last three months been engaged with construction of the newly tarmacked roads.
Vice President Sayil’I said that the construction of these roads is a good example of the earlier promises the current KULMIYE government had pledged to implement during their campaigning.
Roads are an integral part of the transport system; our capital road network should be efficient in order to maximize economic and social benefits. They play a significant role in achieving national development and contributing to the overall performance and social functioning of the community, said the Vice President.
The Hargeisa City Council has for the past three months helped in the construction of 9.5km of tarmac roads although the Lack of access to good road networks is a major constraint on the incomes and welfare of the poor, quantifying the precise impact of this constraint is challenging.
The KULMIYE government has popularized this belief by emphasizing that for any economy to develop, transport must start off first for it to later stimulate other sectors to develop in an orderly fashion, with members of the public providing 40% of the funds used in construction of the new roads.
