Supt. Mappy Urges Cordial Concession, People Ties

By Ballah M. Kollie, Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, Feb 14, (LINA) – Bong County Superintendent Selena Polson-Mappy has emphasized the need for companies operating in the county to ensure cordial working relationship with the citizens in the areas of their operation.

She said unless concessionaires create an environment conducive for both parties, they could continue to face problems that might hamper their operations.

Superintendent Polson-Mappy, speaking to the Liberia News Agency following a meeting with concessionaires, said the gathering was intended to acquaint herself with the activities of the companies and serve to aid the county administration in addressing concerns raised by residents in the concession areas.

Meanwhile, Superintendent Mappy has expressed grave concern over revelation by China Union that it has 278 Liberians in its employ, as compared to 299 Chinese working with the company.

“We need to verify because when we last visited the company, it had less than 200 (Liberians), how can they say that they now have 278? This is subject to verification,” she added.

The meeting was attended by BHP Billiton, China Union, and Jonah Capital Liberia Ltd, with each company given the opportunity to outline their activities, impact, achievements, as well as challenges.
