The National Assembly Member for Busumbala Constituency, Hon. Muhammed Kanteh, has confirmed using his Constituency Development Fund (CDF) to purchase corrugated iron sheets and cement for the people in his constituency.
“In the case of mine, I ordered corrugate and cement because I went around my constituency and saw people building clinics, some building mosques. And we needed those materials to support it. The National Assembly did the procurement to bring the corrugate and the cement. I called the constituency Development committee together with the ward Councilors and the VDC chairpersons to distribute. Some people got it for this round and others will also get in the next round,” hon. Kanteh told Kerr Fatou on Tuesday.
Constituency Development Funds (CDFs) are central government funds given to members of parliament for expenditure in their constituencies. Three hundred thousand dalasi (D300,000) is allocated to every National Assembly Member.
