BANDUNG CITY- West Java (West Java) Governor Ridwan Kamil said he was solid with West Java Deputy Governor Uu Ruzhanul Ulum and was confident that this cohesiveness could be maintained until the end of his term of office.
This was expressed by Emil - familiar greeting Ridwan Kamil - in the Chief Editor Forum (Chief Editor) 'Gathering of the Governor with Mass Media Leaders' in Nara Park, Bandung City, Tuesday (9/17/19).
"We are fine and we will be solid until later (the end of the term of office). Because everyone understands the position of one another. We are dual," Emil said.
Emil also dismissed the notion that Uu was just a spare tire in his second leadership in 2018-2023. The reason, continued Emil, he and Uu complement each other in various things or activities.
Communication with Uu continued to run well. As governor, Emil emphasized that he always opened the tap of communication and discussion about various matters with Uu.
The same thing was conveyed by Uu who was also present at the Chief Editor's Forum. Uu said that until now he and Emil had always been building communication and togetherness.
"Until today and later we will build togetherness and good communication. I and Kang Emil have nothing (problems) and still maintain good communication," Uu said.
Communicate well, meanwhile according to Uu is proof of being a good leader. Therefore, Uu also expressed his gratitude to the media who helped him communicate with the community.
"It means that government programs can be delivered to the public and vice versa, what people want can be conveyed to the government. And that can be done because of the presence of the media," Uu said.
In this Editor-in-Chief Forum, Emil also explained that in one year of his reign with Uu, the West Java Provincial Government (Pemdaprov) sought to be a pro-active state organization.
One of them is by forming Jabar Saber Hoaks under the technical assistance of the West Java Communication and Information Office (Diskominfo) which was inaugurated by Emil on November 7, 2018.
Jabar Saber Hoaks himself clarified various information circulating in the community. Every week, this work unit publishes Top 5 news hoaks.
Until August 21, 2019, Jabar Saber Hoaks succeeded in clarifying 2,643 complaints from a total of 4,454 complaints. Through Jabar Saber Hoaks, Emil also hopes that people will mature in responding to information.
"We aspire the community to become adults to be able to consume any information," Emil said.
In addition, the spirit of bureaucratic reform is part of the realization of a proactive government. Emil said, bureaucratic reform in his government was carried out through digital technology, including in job rotations.
"Everything will be completely digital, (from) budgeting (to) evaluation. Including me trying to be as fair as possible in the rotation of positions," Emil said.
"This also includes searching for the Regional Secretary (Regional Secretary) definitively. We are searching within three months," he concluded.
