"NGOs are not competing with council rather they support council in bringing development to the district," says Chairman Bo District Council, Joseph M. Bindi , he made the statement on Wednesday whilst addressing representatives of NGOs at the monthly coordination meetings for NGOs at the conference hall of the Council along Bo- Tiama High way.

 

Mr. Bindi underpinned the need for NGOs working in Bo District to comply with the council's regulations in terms of tailoring their programs in line with council's development plans. He says if NGOs collaborate with councils and line ministries, more will be achieved in the areas of development.

 

The Council, he went on has the legal mandate to monitor and supervise activities of NGOs under their domain, adding that the Councils are the change drivers in the district therefore it is compulsory for all NGOs to register with the Council.

 

The Bo District Council Chairman disclosed that forms have been distributed to NGOs operating in the district noting that the information given by the NGOs will be used to track their projects and evaluate its merit and demerit.

 

Mr. Bindi commended NaCSA and Welthungerhilfe for compliance with council's mandate and ensuring that council is fully involved in the implementation of their programs. He therefore appealed to other NGOs to emulate the same.


Reacting to the statement made by the Chairman, representative from one of the NGOs, FRC, Hawa Fatoma welcomed the initiative made by the Council and supported the call for effective working relationship between the council and NGOs .

 

In separate engagement, the Chairman of Bo District Council, Joseph M. Bindi has on Tuesday 5th March, 2013, officially handed over a site to Janike enterprise for the construction of a health post at Ngogbebu, Nyawalenge Chiefdom, Bo District. The project is part of NaCSA and Government project titled: Sierra Leone Community Driven Development Project, with funds from the Islamic Development Bank.


Ngogbebu com
munity and environs have been plagued with absence of health facility for decades, people used to travel miles to access a health centre in Negbema for medication. Many now stand to benefit especially the free health care target group, when the health post would have been completed within a period of four months.
