Applauding the Government of Liberia for Signing the Construction Project of the Ganta-Yekepa Road

first_imgThe Government of Liberia under the leadership of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has again with the signing of the construction project of the Ganta-Yekepa Road come to fulfill its pledges to the people of Nimba County, promising to build roads, schools, and hospitals and also to restore electricity, thus bringing to the county a number of social services initiated across the country.An example of such initiatives is the Mount Coffee Hydro Dam, which was destroyed as a result of the civil war and is being rehabilitated; expansion work on the Bushrod Island turbine plant; major rehabilitation and construction work on the Red-Light-Ganta highway; and rural electricity project through the West Africa Power Pool, all of which have brought lights in the homes and streets of Nimba, Grand Gedeh and Maryland counties. The Freeport-Red-Light corridor, which is currently being undertaken, remains in earnest, as are the construction projects for the Gbarnga – Manikoma highway, the Greenville – Zwedru, Ganta – Zwedru to Fish Town roads, which have either been completed or are about to be finalized.With the latest development culminating into the signing of the construction plan of the Ganta – Yekepa road, many Liberians, in particularly citizens of Nimba County, will have cause to applaud and celebrate. Nimba is Liberia’s second most populous county and where a huge number of economic activities are concentrated. The county shares borders Guinea and Ivory Coast, as well as immense trade and commerce.Once completed, the project will enhance the socioeconomic activities of Liberians from all walks of life, reducing travel hiccups and hurdles which are mainly a result of bad road conditions and will encourage investors to the county.We can rightly say that the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf-led government has demonstrated hindsight and commitment in that it has done and is doing more to respond to the needs and aspirations of the Liberian people. And rather than ignoring the challenges undertaken by the government, we hope that with resilience and concerted efforts we as a people will help in the socioeconomic development of our country. This is a government that makes and keeps its promises.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
