The assembly speaker, Ben Loki urged lawmakers to foster peace and reconciliation by fully engaging in church-driven peace initiatives.

He urged the youth and some of the citizens in the state to lay down arms.

The issue of dialogue both with armed opposition elements and other armed groups should be priorities and effectively operationalized in the state, said Loki.

He advised lawmakers to disseminate peace messages in all constituencies to facilitate the smooth implementation of the compromise peace agreement.

“For this initiative to succeed, all roads within the state should be made safe for travels,” said Loki, while urging all armed youth to embrace peace initiatives.

Meanwhile, the Imatong state governor, Nartisio Loluke Manir urged the legislative assembly members to quickly work on ministries’ policy statements.

“This time around will focus on allowing reform implementation to end corruption and boost service delivery,” Manir told the state assembly members.

He further urged lawmakers to join hands with his government to ease efficiency.

“We will not succeed if we don’t have a strong and an efficient system in our institutions. This is why the government of Imatong state is implementing institutional and structural reforms,” stressed the governor.

Manir wowed to tackle corruption by employing competent people in government, adding “democracy rule of law hard work productivity and good governance shall be observed and exercised across institutions in the state”.

The governor also lauded the various communities in the state for ending communal fighting and cattle rustling, which caused many deaths in the state.
