Rep. Morias Says Decentralization Takes Gov’t To People

By Prince Nagbe

HARPER, May 21 (LINA) - Maryland County Legislative Caucus chairman, Dan Morias, has said efforts to decentralize governance were laudable as they will eventually allow the people to participate in decisions on their future.

According to Morias, the Government’s decentralization effort is in the right direction as it is actually helping to take the government to the people.

He made the statement to a team of journalists, including the Liberia News Agency, recently from his home in Harper, Maryland County.

The Maryland County lawmaker noted that the decentralization drive has afforded Liberians, most especially rural dwellers, the opportunity to take part in decision-making processes.

He cited the County Development Fund (CDF) and Social Development Fund (SDF) as instances where the people play roles in deciding what goes their communities.

Rep. Morias said the decentralization undertaking has also given the people, especially in Maryland County, “a deep sense of the rule of law” through the setting up of courts in the various districts in the county.

He said Marylanders, like Liberians from other counties, are beginning to feel a part of the Government as many  occupy key positions in their counties, such as district commissioners and superintendents, where they are functioning from well-built commissioner and superintendent compounds.

The Maryland County lawmaker said the loan taken from the African Development Bank by the Government to pave major roads in the country “is very laudable.”

He also spoke of efforts to provide cheap electricity to the people of Maryland and River Gee, Grand Gedeh, and Nimba counties through an arrangement with the Ivorian Government.
