Gbarnga Streets To Be Paved Soon

By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, July 8 (LINA) - Bong County Senator Henry Yallah says President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has endorsed a decision from the April 19, 2015 County Development Council Sitting to pave major streets in Gbarnga City.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency in Gbarnga Wednesday, Senator Yallah said President Sirleaf endorsed the project at a meeting with the Bong County Legislative Caucus in Monrovia recently.

The Bong County Legislative Caucus Chairman told LINA that President Sirleaf has also validated the US$1.8 million allocation for the re-commencement of construction works on the Bong County Technical College (BCTC).

Yallah explained that a team of engineers from the Ministry of Public Works is expected in Gbarnga this week to do an assessment of streets that are to be paved.

He noted that the report from the assessment team will pave the way for a bidding process and the subsequent commencement of the project.

Speaking on the re-commencement of construction works on various projects in the county, Yallah said the county’s administration is working towards the completion of government’s PPCC processes to get the county funding from the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning to complete the projects. 

Projects targeted include the Bong County Technical College, District Commissioner Residences in Gbartala,  Zota and Suakoko, Botota High School and the Kokoyah Administration Building, all of which came to a standstill as the result of the Ebola Outbreak in 2014.

The county’s administration was also unable to pay over US$1 million to various higher institutions of learning in the country as tuition for several Bong County students studying at those institutions.

The institutions include Cuttington University, Stella Maris Polytechnic, African Methodist Episcopal Zion University (AMEZU), African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU), University of Liberia (UL) and the Booker Washington Institute (BWI), among others.

He called on citizens of the county to exercise restraint as everything is being done by the Caucus and the County Administration to implement the recommendations from the County Council Sitting.
