BUCHANAN, November 18 (LINA) -The Chairman of the National Traditional Council of Liberia, Chief Zanzan Karwor, is urging the Ministry of Internal Affairs to request local officials in each county to provide 250 acres of land for farming after Ebola is kicked out of Liberia.
He said the Ministry should instruct County Superintendents to liaise with Statutory District Superintendents to prepare the land for citizens to grow food to avert any post-Ebola food shortages.
Chief Karwor observed that after Ebola is wiped out of Liberia, hunger will be the next to attack the country.
“The hunger that is in this country is too high and if we don’t do something now, after Ebola is gone, the next attack on the citizens will be hunger,” Karwor told the Liberia News Agency at the administration building in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County Tuesday.
He urged district commissioners around the country to inform Paramount Chiefs to start acquiring and brushing land, adding that communal farming should begin simultaneously nationwide by December.
