Mr Ishmael Adams, the GC IncluCity Project Director re-iterated the commitment of his outfit to work closely with stakeholders to deliver comprehensive and effective reformed property tax and business operating permit system for the STMA.

Mr Adams asked the volunteers to be part of the transformative process of the metropolis by giving off their best in the exercise.
