Senator Cooper Pledges Collaboration With BWI
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, September 16 (LINA) –Margibi County Senator Oscar Cooper has pledged to collaborate with the Booker Washing Institute (BWI) in getting students more engaged through practical initiatives.

He also announced plans to shift from his regular rubber farming to the cultivation of oil palm, rice, cassava, pepper and potato greens, among others.

The Senator made the assertion Tuesday at the dedication of a US$70,000 Soil Science Lab at BWI by USAID Food and Enterprise Development Program
(USAID FED).

He attributed his desire to navigate from rubber plantation to a new culture of farming to the fact that everyone daily eats some of his targeted crops which are grown by fewer Liberians.

On his collaboration with BWI, Senator Cooper promised to provide the funding, while BWI will provide the land, manpower and technicians.

“While I initiate this collaboration, I will demand the security of my money and interest as business is never without profit,” Senator Cooper noted.

Meanwhile, the Margibi County Senator has lamented Liberia’s inability to ensure the much talked about food security.

He noted that the attainment of food security is the biggest achievement any country in the world can make, adding, “There is money, power and security in food.”
