Al-Kadhimi noted that "bad planning has confused many projects in the governorate and there must be a specialized and exceptional team to overcome all obstacles."

He stressed that "there is an urgent need to develop modern and civilized strategies and alternatives in services and infrastructure, at lower costs."

He continued by saying that "it is unreasonable to have delayed projects since 2008 until today, and at least what is described as a crime against a citizen and his entitlement to services."
