Mr Gafaru was speaking at the Third Social Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (SEFA) Forum on Financial Reporting and Auditing of the Assembly, which focused on the rationale for, importance of, and legal framework governing Financial Reporting and Auditing of the Municipal Assembly.
It was organised by the Assembly in collaboration with the Community Development Concern (CDC) a non- governmental organisation.
Mr Gafaru said “we need the general public to work well.”
He hinted that a time will come when revenue from the public rather than the Common Fund will be used in financing the development programmes of the Assembly.
Mr Garafu said a new Shopping Mall at the Civic Centre and the Ahoe market are evidences of what the Assembly can do on its own with the support of the public.
He said government support to the Assembly is based on assessment of the performance of the staff.
