Tehmeh Nudges Sanoyea Citizens On Self-Help Initiatives
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, September 14 (LINA) - Deputy Information Minister for Administration, Mr. Andrew Tehmeh, has challenged citizens of Sanoyea District in Bong County to embrace self- help initiatives to improve their communities.

He said communities should not always wait for Government and non-governmental organizations to develop their aqreas.

Tehmeh made the statement during development initiative meetings he organized in Jarkpa-ta and Worlorshue in Sanoyea District, aimed at fostering developments in the district at the weekend.

He told the over 500 citizens present that it was difficult for government alone to bring them all of the basic social services in the absence of their inputs.

Tehmeh, an eminent son of Sanoyea District, said it was time for citizens of the district to mobilize themselves and local resources to build mini-bridges, side brush roads, build community schools where the government and partners have not reached with basic primary education for children of school-going age.

He then contributed L$24,000 to the Jarkpa-ta and Worlorshue communities to enable them acquire materials to brush the sides of roads in their araes, and pledged his support to the construction of three wooden bridges linking Worlorshue to several parts of Sanoyea.

Tehmeh told LINA that for the past five years, he has supported several community projects in Sanoyea District, including the construction of mini-bridges in Sanoyea and Walapolu Chiefdoms as well as the Boiyormah-Denimah road.

Speaking earlier, the citizens lauded Tehmeh for his continuous support to the district’s development and promised to work with him for the advancement of Sanoyea District.

The citizens especially praised him for investing in the agricultural sector of the district, adding that the initiative is helping them to generate funding to expand their farms to support other livelihood initiatives in their respective communities.
