This is another valid point that deserves mentioning. Given the government funds available and insufficient market conditions we can do so little to sustain the cost of engaging professional Lagaip-Porgerans for the next 5 years. However, it's a good thing the government has increased rural development funding to K10 million for 2008 and I would expect this to continually rise so we can afford to engage their services and build other worthy infrastructures. State-of-the-art classrooms, hospitals, sealed roads and factories can never stand alone without the presence of highly qualified lecturers, doctors, engineers and agriculturalists running them. Intellectual and highly skilled manpower is needed to drive our electorate and province forward. Given the lack of adequate social incomes it could be an expensive exercise for the MP, provincial, and national government to annually budget for payrolls but we will attempt to analyse the socio-economic conditions and people's willingness-to-pay. The people should be prepared to pay their share of the costs of services. The government cannot afford to continually maintain such services. Hence we need to drive our policy strategically. If we can drive our agro-industrial policies home in line with the creation of other social and economic infrastructures, we can create visible incomes for our people at the end of 5 years so that they may in turn be able to afford higher costs of services. Agricultural growth through nucleus enterprise schemes, factories, and small agro-business capitalization is the key to the MP's strategy in beating poverty. However to reduce the costs, I am sure professional Lagaip-Porgerans would be willing to return and work if given the chance, regardless of the competitiveness of the wage level.
