Senator Paye Rues Deplorable Roads in Rivercess
Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

CESTOS, RIVERCESS, April 5 (LINA) –Rivercess Senator Francis Paye has decried the deplorable condition of the road network in the county, calling it “a serious impediment” to its development drive.

“You know Rivercess is a young but very poor county that is striving to be developed, but the road situation is a serious problem to the process,” he told the Liberia News Agency in an interview Sunday at the climax of a week-long tour of southeastern Liberia by Bong County Senator Jewel Taylor.

The visit was to sensitize women and youth on the need for them to fully participate in the political governance of the country and to send their children to school, while youths were encouraged to take their education seriously.

Senator Paye cited the road from Palm Bush Town to Cestos City as one of the most deplorable roads that needs government’s intervention for rehabilitation.

“When you imagine the deplorable state of the road leading to the county seat, you would least talk about other interior roads,” Senator Paye asserted.

Paye disclosed that he single-handedly financed the reconditioning of the road in 2013 but it has again deteriorated and needs rehabilitation.

He lauded the progress being made in uniting the county’s Legislative Caucus, adding, “Though there may be some level of problems in the existing relations among us, but we are at an appreciable level compared to the past five to six years."

According to SEnator Paye, individual lawmakers were implementing projects across the county.

Meanwhile, Senator Paye has disclosed plans to electrify Cestos City.

He revealed that he has already secured a 150 KVA generator with which he will execute the electrification project.

Already, the planting of light poles has begun to light up the city, he said.
