On behalf of Hon.Paramount chief of Sengbe chiefdom,Alhaji Marah said this is the first process that has brought on board all villages.He went on to state that PC would have loved to be present but could not due to his busy schedule

Section chief of Madingo section,Mohamed Sidibay explained how PPP has assisted his community to develop.He highlighted its importance adding that most villages that were not working together are now embarking on activities that would yield sustainable development
