Land Owners’ Demands Impeding Development, Official Laments 

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent
GBARNGA, March 31 (LINA) - The District Commissioner of Sanoyea District in Bong County, Mr. Cantos K. Bornor, has decried the practice of land owners making excessive demands for compensation for their property when government decides to use it for development.

He said such huge demands for crops and land in the way of development have the propensity to stall or stop projects that could bring maximum benefits to the community and people in the district.

Mr. Bornor told the Liberia News Agency Sunday that despite efforts intended to reverse this trend, the situation remains a challenge for district authorities.

He said a recent case in point is when the Swedish International Development Agency, (SIDA), had to compensate a number of persons, when the Agency had to rehabilitate roads in the district, as assistance to the people of Sanoyea.

SIDA has spent over US$15 million on road construction and rehabilitation in Bong County alone since 2009, as development assistance to Liberia and its people.

Meanwhile, Commissioner Bornor is calling on citizens to put development in the district above their personal interests, so that the needed advancement to improve the living condition of the people can be achieved.
