Party, Mr Henry Fatchu.

He said the party had a comprehensive policy on rural development, and
would effectively implement them when it was voted into power.

construct suitable warehouses and retail structures to act as market centres
to serve ECOWAS countries.
In addition, he said, the PNC would increase employment avenues in the
agriculture sector, especially to the youth in the rural areas by assisting them
with farm inputs, extension services and other resources.
The election was conducted by Mr Azu Bosco, the Municipal Director in
