Transport Body Solicits Funds for HQ Project

By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Jan 29 (LINA) - The President of the Federation of Road Transport Unions (FRTUL) Bomi County branch, Mr. James Johnson, has called on authorities of Bomi County and partners to assist the union to complete the construction of its head office in Tubmanburg.

Johnson said funding to purchase additional materials to complete the building was needed to meet implementation timetable.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency on Wednesday in Tubmanburg, Johnson attributed delays in the completion of the building to low income generation from the Union’s activities.

He said the project costs about L$100,000, noting that the meager income generated from fees charged members goes toward rent for the FRTUL’s  current office and salaries of the staff, while the Bomi branch of the Union pays 10 percent of revenue generated to the head office in Monrovia. 

He said the union needs 50 percent of the L$100,000 earmarked to complete the project.

The building will provide accommodation for commuters, visiting FRTUL members, guests of the Union visiting the county and contain a warehouse.
