It is said that for the first time, both the mayor and vice mayor were together in an event. It is such a privilege for us to have been able to see them together in one place. The mayor and vice mayor had the opportunity also to express their plans and desires for the city’s prosperity.

It was a great pleasure for us to have been able to attend the seminar. Questions have been answered during the open forum and clarifications have been made also. We, the attendees have learned a lot from the refresher training. Cheers to the organizers of the event. Looking forward for more seminars like this.
