Sinoe Gears Up For Independence Day Celebration

By Ballah Kollie

MONROVIA, May 26 (LINA) - Sinoe County Development Superintendent, Thomas Romeo Quioh, has said the stage is being set for this year’s Independence Day celebration in Sinoe County, with only 35 percent of major projects left to be completed.

He named on-going projects as the administration building to house the Superintendent in Trentar Statutory District, construction of a multi-purpose youth center, 15-bedroom executive lodge, Superintendent’s Compound and a sports stadium.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency via mobile phone recently, Quioh said all these projects will be dedicated by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaaf as part of the independence festivities in Sinoe County.

He said even though the Independence Day Celebration Budget was reduced from US$6.3, million to one million, enthusiasm among citizens is high to ensure the success of the celebration come Saturday, July 26, 2014.

Mr. Quioh told LINA that county authorities are yet to receive the remaining funds for the project, and lauded the Liberian-owned companies executing the projects for continuing to work while awaiting the balance funds.

Since taking the helm of authority in 2006, the Unity Party-led government decentralized the observance of the country’s independence, giving each county or group of counties the chance to host it.

Counties that have hosted the celebration are Grand Bassa, Margibi, Bong, Lofa, Bomi, Grand Cape Mount, Gbarpolu, Montserrado and Nimba counties.

The celebration is usually accompanied by the dedication of development projects in the host area.
