President Lungu at one of the rallies in Eastern province

President Lungu has thanked the people of Eastern province for turning in large numbers during his campaign trail in the province.

 
He says the huge turn up show that the people still believe in him and the PF.
 
President Lungu stated this in a statement below after winding up his campaign in the province:
 
Thankyou Eastern province for the thunderous welcome you extended to me during my three day tour in the province. The great turnout in our rallies at Lusangazi, Kasenengwa, Chasefu and Lumezi was a clear demonstration of the faith you have in me and the Patriotic Front government.
 
Let me thank their royal highesses who welcomed my delegation and I with open arms. We spent time discussing ways to better the lives of the people in line with our philosophy of taking development to all parts of the country, including Eastern Province.
 
While in Eastern Province, I learnt with great concern the Maize price of K65 per bag set by FRA, which is not a very fair price. My directive to the Minister of Agriculture and FRA is to adjust this price upwards.
 
I wish to further urge people in all the areas where elections are scheduled to take place next week to remain peaceful and united before, during and after elections. Let us live our motto #OneZambiaOneNation.
 
Lastly, I have declared July 26 as a public holiday to enable people in areas where elections will take place to go and vote.
 
Let us vote for candidates that will work with the Patriotic Front government to bring development to the people.
 
God Bless you.
