Bong Supt. Upbeat About LINA Reactivation 

By Ballah Kollie, Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, Feb 28 (LINA) - Bong County Superintendent Selena Polson-Mappy says the reactivation of the Liberia News Agency (LINA) presents an opportunity for Liberians to be informed about happenings in rural Liberia.

She has, therefore, welcomed the assignment of a LINA Correspondent to the county, noting that there is so much to be told about developments taking place in the county.

She described the move as one that will help boost the ongoing campaign of informing citizens about government’s development strides in Bong County.

Madam Polson-Mappy said when she took over as Superintendent in 2012, she initiated a citizens awareness campaign to educate citizens about development projects implemented through the County Development Fund (CDF) and the Social Development Fund (SDF).

The CDF is an allotment by Government to the various counties for development projects, while the SDF is funding provided by concessionaires under their social responsibility to improve a county’s facilities.

She noted that government is doing a lot to uplift the living standards of citizens of the country, but that little is known or heard of the many infrastructural development programs and social service being provided.

The Bong County Superintendent pledged her office’s preparedness to work with the newly-assigned correspondent of the Liberia News Agency Correspondent in Bong County.

In remarks earlier, the LINA Editor-in-Chief Peter Kahler said despite the nearly two decades of the agency’s dormancy, government found it expedient to reactivate it to help disseminate information to its people.

He said while in the county, the LINA Correspondent will closely work the superintendent and other officials to inform Liberians at home and abroad on development programs in the county. 

Kahler headed a team that included two persons from the tourism department of the Information Ministry.

The visit was part of a tour that covered Maryland, Grand Kru, River Gee, Grand Gedeh, Nimba and Bong Counties.

The team was scheduled to visit Margibi County before returning to Monrovia.
