Senate To Cite Public Works, Finance and Transport Minsters
By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, October 1 (LINA) –The Liberian Senate has resolved to invite the Ministries of Public Works (MPW), Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) and Transport (MOT) on October 8, 2015, to address the deplorable condition of roads leading to Southeastern Liberia.

The Senate’s decision which was reached at its 9th Day Extraordinary Sitting on Thursday, follows a communication written by Grand Kru County Senator Peter Coleman in which he decried the deplorable condition of roads leading to all of the southeastern counties.

In his letter, Coleman noted that the appalling condition of roads in the southeastern counties has plunged the region into a state of emergency and economic hardships which need to be addressed urgently.

Coleman explained that the region is not only being cut off gradually, but that the situation is also depriving the region of basic necessities such as food, gasoline and other essential goods.

Coleman observed that due to the muddy and unstable state of the roads, vehicles are seen queuing up on the highways, something that leads to the perishing of goods being transported by commuters.

The Grand Kru Lawmaker emphasized that as a result of this unfortunate situation, the people of the region are experiencing economic hardship and as such Plenary should cite the Ministry of Public Works to provide a remedy to the ensuing emergency.

Although Coleman’s letter only petitioned the Senate to invite the Ministry of Public Works to address the emergency, Gbarpolu Senator Daniel Naatheen filed a motion that authorities of the Ministries of Transport and Finance and Development Planning also be made to appear before plenary as the situation constitutes a national emergency.

The motion was unanimously endorsed by plenary.
