Gbarnga City Warns Citizens Against Speculations
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, December 12 (LINA) - The Gbarnga City Corporation has clarified that its ongoing demolition exercise is not targeting any group of people as is being speculated in some quarters of the county.

At a recent conference in Gbarnga, City Mayor Josiah Marvin Cole said the exercise is in consonance with the city ordinance and will continue as the development process of the city is ongoing.

Cole reemphasized that there is no plan by the city government to unnecessarily demolish edifices of religious and other institutions in and around Gbarnga, and warned those involved in spreading such misinformation, noting that it is intended to undermine the development of the city.

Cole said the demolition exercise will continue in all of the 19 zones of Gbarnga, including the main Broad Street, and encouraged citizens who do not understand the process to seek clarification from the corporation instead of speculating.

He noted that there were series of consultations, including the November 12 City Development Conference in Gbarnga to get the input of the citizens before the start of the exercise.

The Gbarnga City Corporation (GCC) on December 3, embarked on a major clean-up exercise in Gbarnga, demolishing several makeshift structures to give the city a facelift.
