GREENVILLE, July 22 (LINA) – Residents of the port city of Greenville, Sinoe County are in high spirits amidst enormous preparations by county officials to host Liberia’s 168th Independence Anniversary celebration in the county.
With the national ensign of red, white and blue being flown from public and private buildings as well as the trooping of officials of government from around the country to the county, the celebration is set to be a successful and memorable.
Sinoe will co-host this year’s independence anniversary celebration with Grand Kru County as part of the Government of Liberia’s Independence Day decentralization plan aimed at diversifying development initiatives and affording Liberians the platform to be fully engaged with national development.
Speaking to the Liberia News Agency Wednesday, a cross-section of prominent and local citizens in Greenville voiced their satisfaction and congratulated the government for affording Sinoe County the opportunity to co-host the national event.
Sinoe County Assistant Development Superintendent Sneh Johnson believes that it is exciting for the people of the county to be involved in such an auspicious occasion, saying: “Although the preparation was challenging, the county is on par to host a successful festival.”
Sayon Dapayee, an employee of Golden Veroleum Liberia (GVL), thinks the celebration will be a wonderful one, but recommended that projects implemented by government be well taken care of by county authorities.
Also addressing the famous intellectual “Amouwouluu Forum,” (meaning ‘We will Talk’ in the Kru language), Theophilus MCcolins, a resident of Greenville, urged the government to continue the good job to help boost economic activities in the counties.
