VOINJAMA, August 15 (LINA) - Lofa County Superintendent George Dunor has said unity cannot be realized unless there is sincere commitment by all citizens of Lofa in promoting the values that would unite them.
Supt. Dunor said once there is unity amongst the people of Lofa, economic growth and development is inevitable.
The Lofa County official made the call at the opening of the 2015-2016
County Sitting in Voinjama City Saturday.
He called on Lofians to embark on activities that will ensure economic growth and development and refrain from vices that could undermine the unity and peace the county currently enjoys.
Supt. Dunor named jealousy, greed, envy, selfishness and back-biting, among others, as some of the vices that could impede the forward march of the county, adding: “Let us not indulge in such unwholesome behaviors for the good of our motherland.”
“Any attempt to allow the element of disunity to permeate the society will lead us to abject poverty and perpetual underdevelopment,” Dunor stressed.
He assured the citizens that the entire leadership remains committed to the overall development goals of the county, regardless of political, social, tribal and religious orientations.
Lofians from across the county on Saturday gathered at the William V.S. Tubman City Hall inVoinjama to discuss issues surrounding the wellbeing of the county at the 2015-2016 County Council Sitting.
At the county sitting, delegates decide on several development projects to be undertaken by the county authority from the County and Social Development Funds.
The County Development Fund is aUS$200,000 annual allotment from the National Budget for each county, while the Social Development Fund is fees paid to counties by concessionaires for development as part of their social corporate responsibility.
The Lofa County Council Sitting has not taken place for the past two years.
