Bong Civil Society Council Cries For Job Creation

By Ballah Kollie, Bong County Correspondent
GBARNGA, March 12 (LINA) -The Chairman of the Bong Civil Society Council, Mr. Stephen J. Mulbah, is calling on county officials to design programs that will help create jobs and ensure food security.

He said jobs and food security can be obtained through the cultivation of swampland in at least seven of the 13 districts of Bong County, where swamps are available for rice production.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Tuesday in Gbarnga, Mr. Mulbah said the need for citizens’ involvement in creative ventures cannot be overemphasized, noting, “Unless these opportunities are supported by your creativity, your expectations might not be met.”

He said when citizens get involved in swamp rice production; they will be contributing to the production of the country’s staple food, while at the same time providing jobs for its citizens to generate income.

He re-emphasized the preparedness of the Council to monitor and evaluate projects supported by both the Social and County Development Funds, describing it as a responsibility of all Civil Society groups to ensure that beneficiaries get their just rewards.
