TUBMANBURG, March 28 (LINA) - The Superintendent of Bomi County, Samuel F. Brown, has said a tour of the county has shown that the people are prepared to produce their own food, especially the staple rice.
Superintendent Brown said in all the districts he visited, the people are involved in private farming.
He said many of the people are also involved in the cultivation of cash crops to “make themselves economically strong.”
In an interview with the Liberia News Agency at his Tubmanburg office at the weekend, Brown noted that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and other government officials, especially those from Bomi, have farms in the county.
He named Speaker Alex Tyler, Senator Sando Johnson and Commissioner
James Tarpeh of Senjeh District as well as himself as Superintendent, as some officials that have farms in the county.
Brown said the intention of these officials is not only to provide food and economically empower themselves, but to also create job opportunities for citizens of the county.
He said a number of citizens, especially the youth, have been employed on these farms.
