Pres. Sirleaf Wants PCC Consider Cemetery, Motorbike Parking

MONROVIA, July 1 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has challenged the Paynesville City Corporation (PCC) to consider the erection of a terminal for motorbike taxis and upgrade of the two cemeteries in Duport Road that are in bad shape.

“One of the things we want to do is to see that we give respect to the dead and that means trying to make sure that where their remains lie, we show respect,” President Sirleaf said.

According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf made the statement when she officially dedicated the Duport Road Junction Park on Tuesday, June 30.

She stressed that if the graveyards are overcrowded, the PCC should close them down in the proper fashion but make sure that relatives and loved ones who will go there to visit would go to a place of dignity.

President Sirleaf also applauded Montserrado County District #4 Representative Henry Fahnbulleh for his suggestion that the PCC thinks about building a terminal for the motorbike taxis in the Duport Road area.

The Chief Executive then commended PCC Acting Mayor C. Cyvette Gibson for the ongoing transformation of the city under her watch.

“We want to thank you for all you’ve done to show the strength of purpose, commitment in objective and the results that have come from all of that effort,” the Liberian leader said.

She applauded the youth, contractors, and the entire staff of the PCC for the work they’ve done to transform the City of Paynesville, adding, “Progress always brings the desire for more progress.”

The Duport Road Community, with 10 large sub-communities, now has two parks in the community of an estimated population of 114,321 residents.

The genesis of the Duport Road Junction Project was conceived during the dedication of the ELWA Junction beautification project in June 2013 when President Sirleaf highlighted the need to replicate the project at the Duport Road junction. 

On March 12, 2015 the PCC held the groundbreaking ceremony and planted the illustration as public awareness for the beautification project.
