Citizens of River Gee Applaud Gov’t For Local Bank

By Prince Nagbe

FISHTOWN, May 4 (LINA) - Citizens of River Gee County have applauded the Government of Liberia for the facilitating the establishment of a bank and cash center in Fish Town, the provincial capital of the county.

The bank and cash center were established in March, 2014 to facilitate normal banking activities as well as offer money transfer and receipt through Western Union and Money Gram and encashment of government employees’ salary checks.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency at Friday, some citizens, including government employees and local business people, thanked the government for facilitating the bank, the first in the county’s history.

“With the construction of this bank, there is now an impression of enhanced economic security in River Gee and neighboring counties,” said Mr. Derrick Weah, a teacher at the Putuken Public School.

“The process is very easy and simple now. All I have to do is to verify my name on the roster, sign for my check and encash it in the next room. I don’t have to abandon my job and my family for days just to run after my pay,” Jeffery Pah, a Sheriff at the Fish Town Magisterial Court, said.

The Superintendent of River Gee County, Daniel G. Johnson, told LINA that the bank is a combined effort of both the Government of Liberia through Central Bank and the people of River Gee County.

The bank, he said, was first setup by the government as a check encashment center, but was later transformed into a fully-functional bank by the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) in collaboration with Afriland First Bank and the county administration.

He thanked the government for the level of development it has brought to the people, noting, “the people of River Gee are grateful for the bank and will do all they can to make sure it remains fully operational.
