Pres. Sirleaf On Decongestion At Red Light Market

MONROVIA, May 5 (LINA) -The decongestion of the Red Light Market and ensuring that marketers have a clean and safe business environment for their trading has again hit President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s priority ranking.

This was highlighted when she spoke recently at a program marking the unveiling of work in progress at the Omega Market in Paynesville City, outside Monrovia, and called for more support to complete the ongoing market project.

According to an Executive Mansion release, she pointed out that the project started with “a very simple” objective which was to get the market women off the streets and sidewalks and place them into a decent market building to do their trading through the Sirleaf Market Women Fund.

She said the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority in the United States of America bought the idea of constructing a safe business environment for marketers and started to reach out and join in elevating the concept of building decent market facilities for women to another level.

The Liberian leader said that the partnership with the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority from abroad and the chapter in Liberia has brought the project to its current level with the support of many other people.

"We believe that this project is a worthy cause and must be supported by all well-meaning people. The area is vast and can accommodate a lot of different projects and I think business people and others can now join hands with the Alphas and expand the project", President Sirleaf said.

On Tuesday, March 5, 2013, at a meeting organized to discuss the Omega Village Project, President Sirleaf named former Acting City Mayor, Madam Mary T. Broh, to head the Project Implementation Unit that will manage the project, with the Ministry of Public Works taking the lead.
