The CECMs Message

Under the leadership of his excellency, Governor Jonathan Bii Chelilim, The department is on course to improve road infrastructure. We have farmers who need good roads to transport their produce and they are guaranteed good roads. For those who do business, projects are being implemented that will improve the roads to enable them to reach their workplace. The road projects will also help school-going children. The good roads will help the residents while they go to seek services, whether going to hospitals, making social visits or going to places of worship. We are going to ensure that we have good roads for all of us.
