The RPF-Inkotanyi presidential candidate, Paul Kagame, on Wednesday reassured residents in Nyabihu District that his government will make poverty history once he is elected back in the top office.
Campaigning in the district on Wednesday, the Chairman said that partnership and collaboration among Rwandans will remain key in driving the country’s path to development.
“Nothing will be impossible for us if we continue working together. Our goals are development, security, unity, and let’s work to achieve them,” he said, urging residents in Nyabihu to vote for him in the forthcoming presidential election.
He promised to keep improving essential infrastructure such as roads, electricity, and schools.
“You need to give us a chance so we can continue to work towards achieving so much more of these essential things,” he said.
He said that under his government, more women and children will have decent life because he wants to eradicate poverty and malnutrition in the country.
“We don’t want any more malnourished children because we have enough food. We want to eradicate poverty, we want to end malnutrition and in the next seven years we shall continue to work towards achieving these goals,” he said.
Thousands of his supporters in the district were gathered at Groupe Scolaire Rambura, a secondary school in the district’s Rambura Sector, where they welcomed him with pomp that featured songs about his government’s policies and their resolve to vote for him next month.
