Transport Official Calls For Awareness On Decentralization

By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU CITY, May 28 (LINA) - Transport Ministry Regional Coordinator for Southeastern Liberia, T. Max Waylee Deah, says the slow pace of compliance with  the Ministry’ decentralization program is due to lack of adequate public awareness.

He explained that of the over 10,000 motorcycles plying the routes of the region, his office has been able to register a little over a thousand.

Mr. Deah told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in an interview Monday that efforts are underway to attract stakeholders, including corporate managers, drivers and motorcyclists, to see the advantage of decentralization which is meant to reduce constraints, save time and cut expenses.

He was optimistic that with time, drivers will see the advantage of license issuance and registration in the region, adding, “the momentum will pick up as soon as they begin to see and understand what decentralization means to them.”

He described the Ministry’s relations with the police, transport unions and drivers as “very cordial,” noting that the police command is working with the ministry to ensure compliance with the law.

Meanwhile, Mr. Deah wants the strength of his staff upped in order to serve the sub-offices in Maryland, River Gee, Grand Kru and Sinoe counties for effective operation.

The MOT regional office for the Southeastern Region is located in Zwedru City, Grand Gedeh County.
