Huambo - The Angolan minister of Territory Administration, Virgílio de Fontes Pereira, Tuesday in central Huambo province , called on the officials, and members of the local civil society to provide all required assistance to the new provincial governor, so he can best perform his duties.

Virgílio Fontes Pereira made the appeal at the ceremony of formal presentation of the new Huambo governor, Fernando Faustino Muteka, recently sworn in by the head of State, Jose Eduardo dos Santos.

He said the assistance will enable the governor to carry out actions and programmes that help maintain the level of development the province has reached and meet the needs of the populations of the region.

"The population, with open heart and soul, must support Fernando Faustino  Muteka as the new governor of Huambo province”, he stressed.

He added that the support should always be extended within a spirit of dialogue, so Angola can become a country where everyone can live.

In his turn, the outgoing Huambo governor, Albino Malungo, wished Fernando Faustino Muteka success, and a fierce fight against misery, poverty, children out of the education
system, and an effort to relaunch agriculture and cattle breeding.

Meanwhile, addressing the ceremony, the new governor expressed his readiness to work with all those who wish to see Huambo to develop, with existing projects and new ones.

Fernando Faustino Muteka has already held the posts of minister of Agriculture, Transports, Territory Administration, governor of south-western Namibe province and other positions in Angola’s central government.
