The local government of Garowe town of semi-autonomous regional State of Puntland has the first imposed House numbering programmes in the town.
The Garowe local government secretary, Qasim Mohamed Ali who gave exclusive interview to Goobjoog News described that the house physical address can make accessible most of apartment buildings in the administrative capital of Puntland State.
“The addresses present in a mostly fixed format, used for describing the location of a building, apartment, or other structure or a plot of land, therefore it plays a very important role in urbanization”
Mr Qasim speaking merits of house numbering said “it gives out accurate direction as each house gets unique number. Thus fire fighters can respond quickly on natural disaster like fire, it also takes part in improving the security of the town as the government has all the detail about plots and number the houses”
He urge people of Garowe not neglect project or erase the number from the plots.
