LACE Launches 5 Legislative Projects In Nimba

By Wellington Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent
 

SANNIQUELLIE, April 15 (LINA) -The Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE) in collaboration with the 53rd National Legislature has launched five major projects to be implemented in Nimba County.

The projects are a four-classroom annex to the Sanniquellie Central High School, extension of the Karnplay High School in Electoral District #3, the Garplay Public School in the Toa River District and construction of the Ganta Public Market in District #1 in Nimba County.


In remarks at a ceremony Saturday to launch the projects, LACE Board of Directors Chairman, Peter Z. Kamei, said his institution will do everything possible to ensure that all projects earmarked by the Legislature are implemented successfully.

He said all contractors hired to implement the projects are required to pre-finance them, and then LACE will reimburse them upon completion of the project in stages.

Also speaking at the ceremony, the chairman of the Parents/Teachers Association of the Sanniquellie Central High Public School, Earnest Yeanay commended the PTA for earlier embarking on a four-classroom building as a community-based self-initiative.

He said the legislative project will buttress the community’s desire to invest in education.

Sanniquellie Central High is the oldest academic institution in Nimba County, but lacks the capacity to accommodate the current student population in the county.

The projects launch was attended by representatives from the County Superintendent’s Office, statutory superintendents, commissioners, students, youth and the Liberian Marketing Association Nimba County branch.
