Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency recently in Jacob Town upon arrival in Monrovia on a visit from the county, he said the meeting also discussed the construction of clan offices as part of projects earmarked for 2014.

Old man Tellewoyan also said at the elders and traditional leaders cited numerous packages provided by President Sirleaf and her government, including construction and rehabilitation of health and educational facilities, roads and markets, among others, in Voinjama District.
