BUCHANAN, Feb 17, (LINA) - The Senior Senator of Grand Bassa County and President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate, Gbehzongar Milton Findley, is urging citizens of the county to do away with divisive politics and forge ahead with the development of their county.
He observed that Grand Bassa County could be one of the most developed counties in Liberia if citizens are united, noting, "2014 (Senatorial Elections) will come and go, but the interest of the Bassa people must be protected at all times".
Senator Findley made the call when he delivered the keynote address at the 41st graduation program of the Liberia Entrepreneur and Assets Development (LEAD) held at the Open Bible Church at the weekend in lower Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.
During this year's ceremony, 10 persons received certificates upon completion of prescribed courses.
The Grand Bassa Senior Senator, who also served as Chief launcher, admonished the graduates to take advantage of the training and be focused in life.
He told the graduating class that national government does not have the capacity to employ every Liberian, and challenged them to put into practice what they have learned for the betterment of their families.
He then thanked the staff of LEAD for their role in training farmers to produce crops and manage their own businesses.
In remarks at the program earlier, LEAD National Director, Allen Gweh
said his organization was founded in 2005 by local business and church
leaders in Monrovia with the sole purpose of empowering local business
Director Gweh said LEAD trains business owners in managing their own
businesses and gives out micro-loans ranging from US$100 to US$5,000.
