-Calls For Reconciliation Among Citizens
Road construction continues to be a top priority of George Weah’s administration, in the wake of pronouncement from key stalwarts of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) holding legislative position about implementing the agenda in their respective constituency.
Representative Alfred G. Koiwood of electoral District Number One in Gbarpolu County has become the latest poised to uphold his party’s agenda, following his assurance of a pave road from Montserrado to Gbarpolu County.
Representative Koiwood told cross section of residents residing in Gbarpolu County over the weekend that he is currently in talk with the executive to ensure that the road from Brewerville, through Bomi to Bopolu City is paved by latest 2019.
“President George Weah is from my party, the CDC, so let me assure you that the road from Brewerville to Bopolu City will be paved by 2019,” Koiwood said.
This, according to him is geared at easing burden being posed on citizens over the years due to deplorable road condition along that route.
Citizens of Gbarpolu County have over the years complained that deplorable road condition remains an underlining factor that unrelentingly impedes development, agricultural benefits and economy growth of the county.
With the pavement of the Bomi to Bopolu road, the lawmaker noted that source of livelihood of his people and infrastructural development among others would improve.
Representative Koiwood believes, his quest to ensure that pave road reach Bopolu City will be successful if other officials of the county support him in making it a reality.
He noted that the pavement of road from Montserrado County to Bopolu City might face a setback if division continued to exist among officials of the county, calling for reconciliation.
The House Committee Chairman on National Security wants citizens of the county put aside political bitterness that sparked out during the elections era and join hands in fostering development in the county.
He said: “The elections are over, let us forget our personal differences. If I did anything to you during the elections process, I ask for forgiveness, and if any of you did wrong to me, I forgive you. It’s time that we think about the development of our county.”
At the same time, the Gbarpolu County lawmaker wants residents of the county to get more involve with agricultural productivity in producing sufficient local commodities that will help increase supply and curtail expenditure for them.
“Our government, the CDC led government is committed to ensuring that all of its campaign promises are met, but this will not happen immediately because it will be a gradual process,” Representative Koiwood asserted.
“This is why all as citizens of Gbarpolu County, citizens of Liberia must support the government through agriculture and in our own possible ways to put Liberia on par with other countries in the sub-region.”
Representative Koiwood has further admonished newly inducted officials of Gbarpolu County to put the interest of the county first.
Those inducted were the County Development Superintendent Joseph Akoi and the City Mayor Zinnah Normon among others.
Meanwhile, Koiwood has promised his continue commitment to improve education not only in his district, but in major parts of the county.
