Nagbe Says Govt's Development Gains ‘Excellent’
By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, October 12 (LINA) - Information Minister Lenn Eugene Nagbe has described as "excellent" the development achievements of the Government of Liberia under the leadership of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

Nagbe said when “the day of reckoning comes” where the development scorecard of the government will be unveiled, even the greatest critics of the regime will appreciate the level of development being achieved through the ingenuity of President Sirleaf.

Nagbe cited the Mount Coffee Hydro Project, the ongoing road development projects, the Ministerial Complex to be constructed soon and building of the Roberts International Airport terminal and runway, among others, as some tangible development trademarks which speak to government's commitment to doing more for the people of Liberia.

Speaking Tuesday in an interview with the Liberia Broadcasting System, Nagbe said the Unity Party-led government headed by President Sirleaf has paved and rehabilitated more roads than any previous government, something which, he said, is being appreciated even by those who criticize the government.

"Tomorrow we will be dedicating the Red Light to Guinea-border highway, meaning that you can now drive on a super highway and we are very proud of that development achievement," Nagbe noted.

He said following topographical assessment, the Mount Coffee Hydro Plant is now equipped with a master class turbine which is expected to last for several decades.

On the construction of the Ministerial Complex, Nagbe clarified that the US$60 million complex is being funded 100 percent by the People's Republic of China, contrary to reports that the government is spending US$4 million for the demolition of the unfinished Ministry of Defense building.

He said the construction of the complex will create more jobs, prevent government from paying rent for some ministries, decongest central Monrovia, ease traffic congestion as well as ensure the creation of an intra-ministerial communication framework.

Nagbe believes that those who are criticizing government are also contributing to the development agenda of the nation, but he thinks that their right to criticize and hold government accountable should be backed by facts.
