Grand Gedeh Women Gown Pres. Sirleaf

ZWEDRU, April 17 (LINA) - The Women of Grand Gedeh County have gowned the Liberian leader, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, for her “extraordinary leadership” and the many development initiatives undertaken in Grand Gedeh County and the nation during her tenure.

They said since her ascendancy as President, Liberia has been peaceful, noting that these achievements were among reasons that motivated their decision to honor and gown her.

Responding at a dinner the women held in her honor, President Sirleaf thanked them and praised the role of women in sustaining the peace.

She called on them to continue maintaining the peace in everything they do.

The Liberian leader promised to work with the County Legislative Caucus to look into some of their concerns proffered and congratulated them for standing by the government, including their legislators, over the past 11 years.

Speaking earlier, the Secretary General of Grand Gedeh Legislative Caucus, Alex Grant thanked President Sirleaf for taking development to Grand Gedeh County, citing particularly the electric power transmission lines now running through bordering villages.

“I was born in the late 60s; since that time up to now, I have not seeing electric wire crossing over in my village. Today am seeing it, that’s something good,” he said.

In separate remarks, Superintendent Peter Solo, youths, women, chiefs and the

Governor Council praised President Sirleaf for sustaining the peace and the numerous development projects.

In a related development, President Sirleaf on Sunday inspected ongoing works at the Grand Gedeh Community College.

She was met on arrival by the President of the College, Dr. Solomon Jallayon, and an array of students.

College President Jallayon informed President Sirleaf that the entire project is put at US$1.25 million and is expected to be completed in December.

Already 30 percent of the total cost has been advanced to contractors, he disclosed.

Responding, President Sirleaf expressed delight over the level of work that has been done on the college with only 30 percent committed thus far.
