He said the number of roads, bridges, schools, hospitals and other public infrastructure done by government was there to see by Zambians.

He also said that government had introduced new programmes such as community fish farming and had increased support to small-scale farmers living in rural areas.

He said Zambians have also had an opportunity to know President Lungu and his commitment to better the lives of Zambians.

The Secretary General has urged the party’s structures to welcome and work with mobilisation committees that were formed to complement the work of the party on the ground.

He said it was imperative that friction rising between the mobilisation teams and party structures was stopped for the good of the party.

He said some members of the party structures have not welcomed the mobilization committees and appealed to them to work together.

Meanwhile Mr. Mwila has emphasized that the adoption of candidates for elective positions will be done on merit basis.
