‘2016 Year of Absolute Fulfillment, Deliverables’ - Officials

By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, December 28 (LINA) - Information Minister Lenn Eugene Nagbe and Presidential Press Secretary Jerolinmek Piah have termed 2016 as ‘the year of absolute fulfillment and deliverables.’

Minister Nagbe said in fulfillment of the Liberian leader’s year of deliverables promise, government and its partners dedicated the Coca Cola Factory junction-Ganta- Guinea Border road valued at US$244 million.

The government on December 15 turned on the first turbine of the Mount Coffee Hydro Power Plant which is now transmitting 22 megawatts of electricity to the City of Monrovia and its environs.

The two government spokespersons were speaking Wednesday when they appeared on the ELBC “Super Morning Show.”

The newly-paved road, which has considerably reduced travel time, constraints and cost from Monrovia to Gbarnga and Ganta and then to the Guinean border, was constructed by government through funding from the World Bank and other bilateral and multilateral partners.

The two officials revealed that Segment One of the road, which runs from Monrovia to Gbarnga, was built at a cost of US$166 million, while the second segment which runs from Gbarnga to the Guinea border costUS$78 million.

These achievements, they said, can be credited to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s ability to reach out to partners to solicit resources to fund needed development projects.

Reflecting on the Unity Party-led Government’s achievements in 2016, the two government spokespersons were optimistic that many more infrastructure projects will be completed in 2017, while others will be left for the incoming administration.

Among several other projects still being implemented are the pavement of avenues in Sinkor, concrete pavement of some roads in 50 communities and neighborhoods in Monrovia as well as major highways in South-eastern Liberia.

Meanwhile, the two officials have revealed that a procurement exercise is ongoing for the construction of the Gbarnga-Salayea road which will cost US$96 million.

The road, which constitutes Phase 1 of the Gbarnga-Mendicorma highway, is about 98 kilometers.
