West Point Youth Wants Community-Based Taskforce

By: Winnie Dixon

MONROVIA, September 1 (LINA) - The Co-Chair of a grouping of the organizations in the Township  of West Point, Kenneth Bartu, is appealing to the government to allow the creation of community-based taskforces to buttress the work National Task Force.

The grouping, comprises organizations, opinion and youth leaders, set up during the West Point riot, filled in the gap during the absence of the Township Commissioner during the quarantine of the area.

In an Interview with the Liberia News Agency in the Township Monday, Bartu said though they understand that the National Task Force is working in the interest of the people, every area has its own approach to convincing residents to adhere to the preventive measures.

Bartu said the essence of the community taskforce would be to identify focal persons in various communities who understand the people’s languages and challenges that would help the National Task Force use suitable and acceptable approaches for particular localities.

He added that the Ebola fight is a national one that must be fought at all levels and not be restricted to the National Task Force Secretariat which cannot be present in every locality at the same time.

Meanwhile, Bartu has welcomed the government’s decision to lift the quarantine imposed on the township.
