Apr 26, 2024

NGOZI, April 24th (ABP) – At a press conference held on Wednesday 24 April 2024 in Buye, after a two-day meeting of the Central Committee of the ruling CNDD-FDD party, important decisions concerning the party and state institutions were taken, according to the party’s Secretary General, Révérien Ndikuriyo.

On the education front, the party has decided to restore boarding facilities in the country’s schools. Catering services in public universities will also be strengthened. The aim is to restore value to the education sector and equip the country with an elite that is equal to the challenges facing the people.

The curricula taught in schools and universities will be reviewed to adapt them to the objectives of the country’s vision.

The party is also proposing that technical and scientific subjects be promoted in schools. Students should focus on subjects that will contribute to the country’s development.

From a health point of view, hygiene should be a compulsory law for all Burundians. Schools and universities that teach health sciences must be supported to produce competent doctors in sufficient numbers to serve the country and help other countries with fewer doctors. Burundi must do all it can to ensure that patients are treated locally instead of spending a lot of money on treatment abroad.

In terms of security, school leavers must do compulsory civic service for two years before starting higher education. Patriotic training must continue in all sectors.

With regard to justice, the vision of “Burundi as an emerging country in 2040 and a developed country in 2060” will only be achieved with a change in the behaviour of Burundians. The CNDD-FDD party has recommended that Burundians break with certain behaviours, such as idleness, dishonesty, etc. The CVR must complete its work and ensure that the country’s political and economic development is respected.

The CVR must complete its work and report back. To do that, the commission must be given a deadline to finish its work. Fraud, corruption and embezzlement of all kinds must be eradicated.

Finally, on the economic front, electricity must be increased to provide the country with the means of production.  Mining sciences will be introduced as a faculty in the country’s schools and universities.

In the area of housing, the infrastructure to be built must be adapted to the objectives of the country’s development vision.

The Ngozi Central Committee meeting was attended by the Elders’ Committee, the national and provincial secretaries and the offices of the communal committees.  Out of a planned 186 participants, 183 attended.
