President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has told the people of Western Province that he has nothing to give them but can only promise hard work.

And President Lungu has promised that he will love the people of Western province just like other people in all parts of the country even if they didn’t vote for him in 2015 and 2016 presidential elections.

Addressing hundreds of people who had been assembled at Mongu Airport by his ruling party, Patriotic Front (PF) and government to receive him on Saturday, President Lungu said he was greatful for the warm reception.

President Lungu who is on a-three-day official visit to the province told the people that he had nothing to give him but will work hard to develop their region that had ragged behind in terms of development, a situation forcing them to fight for separation from the rest of Zambia.

The Head of State assured the people that he will love them and do everything within his means to ensure people feel to be embraced in his government.

Under President Lungu’s reign, a number of people in civil service who hail from the provinces such as Western, Southern and North Western where the opposition enjoys support have not been embraced.

Speaking at the same occasion, provincial Minister Richard Kapita who is former Deputy to UPND president Hakainde Hichilema told President Lungu that the people in the province appreciates the work being done by government.

Kapita said as a result people were now seeing no reason of being in opposition.

The opposition UPND in 2016 elections won all the Parliamentary seats apart from one which was scoped by an Independent.
