Unity state transitional Legislative Assembly reopens after six months

The Unity State Transitional Legislative Assembly reopened on Monday after six months of recess.

Joseph Monytuil Wejang, the Governor of Unity State and the Speaker of the State parliament Ustaz Nger Banguot attended the opening session of parliament.

Ustaz Nger Banguot, urged lawmakers to remain united and focus on bringing lasting peace among communities in Unity State.

He said that parliamentary session was supposed to have opened on November 9 last year, adding that it was delayed due to the governor’s forum, and the renovation of the parliamentary building.

 Banguot said that they will focus on peace implementation and ensure that returnees who recently fled conflict in neighboring Sudan are resettled and provided with necessary humanitarian assistance such as food, medicine and shelter.

He also disclosed that the legislative assembly will also deal with the issue of dredging the Nam River, which raised controversy within the public last year.

 Joseph Monytuil Wejang, the Governor of Unity State said that his government is committed to work together with the state legislative assembly to bring lasting peace, development and the dredging of the Nam River.

“I have committed myself to implement the South Sudan peace agreement without reservation, and I assure you and promise to work hand- in- hand with you to bring permanent peace in the community, Our state is calm because of our efforts to bring lasting peace,” Monytuil said.
