On the second day of the work of the VIII MAO National Forum, which is taking place in the conference hall in Djibloho, a presentation was given on ‘The Promotion of Respect for Public Property’, given by Friend Sergio Esono Abeso Tomo, and moderated by Friend Filomena Oyo Ebule.
The speaker began by thanking Friend Filomena Oyo for her introduction, and declared,
Brother militants, we all do good, and avoid bad, so there is no problem with the protection of public property, and in the end we are in MAO; we are humanists; I believe that there cannot be a problem of harmonious living or respect”.
In his speech he included some sayings on friendship, which indicate how to identify a true friend, and he also affirmed that the aim of the States interest is to defend sovereignty and satisfy the general interest, through the mission of public services and “furthermore, to build roads, schools, universities, so that these infrastructures become the well-being of public property; for that reason the public administration needs material and economic resources in order to achieve the aims that society is demanding of it, and to exercise the powers granted under judicial regulations as the supreme representative of the general interest.
As a consequence, as any legal player taking part in the area of regulations, the public administration is a legal person with full capabilities to work towards achieving its aims.
The public administration does not do business in general; the public administration sees the general interest. In this area of public property, we can clearly find some of the characteristics which best define administrative law.
The policy of urban districts is simply a policy of regulating territories in order to bring in isolated areas. In fact, infrastructures are determining elements in development, because they are essential for production and distribution on the one hand; and because they provide services such as access to water and sanitation”.
