Maidan Wardak governor formally resumes work
MAIDAN SHAHR (Pajhwok): The newly-appointed governor for central Maidan Wardak province on Monday formally resumed his duty amid pledges to bolster security and law and order in the province.
A ceremony was introduced in honor of Hayatullah Hayat, which was attended by local officials, Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG), tribal elders and provincial council members in Maidan Shahar, the provincial capital.
Deputy IDLG head Abdul Malik Sediqi said that Hayat was an energized and capable man to govern the province and serve the people diligently.
He asked local officials and tribal elders to support governor in implementing new projects because a governor without people’s support could succeed in his programs.
Lawmakers and provincial council members of the province said that Maidan Wardak was an insecure province and the new governor should pay more attention to stabilize the area.
Senator Eng. Hasibullah Kalimzai said Maidan Wardak borders with capital Kabul but it was neglected in development sector.
He said insecurity and land grabbing were main problems in the province and the newly-appointed governor should work hard to resolve some pressing issues.
