As such, Miuvaan touched down on the president’s recent visit to four islands of Haa Alif and Haa Dhaal atoll.
President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih met with island councils and Women’s Development Committee (WDC) members from the respective islands during the tour. The meetings saw the members expressing their appreciation to the president for bringing development to the islands without bias and discrimination.
Miuvaan went on to note that the incumbent administration has been obstinate in developing infrastructure in the islands, even though previously, the primary concern of council representatives was delays in providing essential services.
