Mr Abdulla explained that Tanzanians are happy with the incumbent national leaders for recording remarkable success ahead of the expiry of the National Development Vision 2025.

Mr Abdullah said President Samia and President Mwinyi have both recorded huge strides in providing services to the public.

Today Tanzanians, to the larger extent, are enjoying access to safe and clean water, education, health, electricity and communication services with life expectancy also im- proving.

“Tanzania is blessed with many things includ- ing a stable government and good leadership, we should be confident that Vision 2050 will give us an opportunity to take our country to greater heights in poverty reduction, economic diversification, technological progress and more,” 2VP said.

He argues that the vision is the document that belongs to all Tanzanians, saying it is the responsibility of all Zanzibaris and leaders to accomplish the objectives set.

He urged all people to accord the necessary support to the taskforce charged with the responsibility of collecting views in preparation for the National Development Vision 2050, “so as to have Tanzania we want for ourselves, our children and future generations.”
