The Junior Senator of Grand Kru County, Peter Coleman says the county which has been lagging behind in terms of development is now experiencing what he called vigorous rebirth.

 

According to Senator Coleman, major roads that were impossible in the county over the years are now possible due to work being carried out by the Ministry of Public Works and its contractors.

 

He noted that too long citizens of the county have craved for mass improvement in their lives so that the county can be on par with other counties that are rapidly progressing and contributing to the development and growth of the country, destroyed as a result of the 15 years civil war.

 

The Grand Kru Senator spoke recently at the installation ceremony of the newly elected officers of the Bolloh Community, in New Kru Town, outside Monrovia.

 

Senator Coleman indicated that although development is important, it requires the collective and concerted efforts of all citizens of the county in order to ensure the achievement of its development goals.

 

He named health care, education, water and sanitation as the top priorities of the county that needs to be tackled if the living conditions of the people are to improve.

 

The Senator told his fellow citizens that the hallmark of his administration is to work for the attainment of these essentials, adding that these can be achieved when citizens of the county remain united and rally around their political leaders.

 

Senator Coleman emphasized that he and his colleagues will put in place what he termed structural mechanisms for the prudent management and control of monies intended for the development of the county to avoid foul play in the usage of the funds.

 

"Whatsoever we are doing we have to do it properly, so that whatever an urban child enjoys in terms of basic social services provided by government, the rural child too will enjoy same," the Senator stressed.

 

He iterated that the county is ready to provide the necessary avenue that will trigger job opportunities in order to attract citizens of Grand Kru County to go back home and work to be able to contribute immensely to the development and growth of the county.

 

He also challenged the new leadership of the Bolloh Community to encourage citizens hailing from Grand Kru doing business in Monrovia to establish similar businesses in the county, noting that doing so would help in fostering development.

 

Senator Coleman further intoned that when these businesses are established in the county, NGOs and individuals that did not have interest in the county would be motivated to do so.

 

He further told the people that he will exalt pressure on GSM companies and other non-governmental organizations that earlier deserted the county to return because the citizens are committed to the transformation of the county.

 

For her part, the inducted chairman of the Bolloh Community in Monrovia and its environs, Comfort Kukor Toe stated that her administration will infuse a new wave of dynamism into the leadership of the community by redirecting developmental initiatives through the empowerment of youths, who according to her, play a vital role in promoting development.

 

The Bolloh Community leader stressed that youths of the county need to be empowered by building their human resource capacity in order for them to engage in positive ventures and make germane decision that would influence the holistic development of the county.

 

She however, assured the people that funds that will be raised by the organization will be utilized in the best interest of the people, and called on the Grand Kru County Legislative Caucus to remain relentless in their quest to ensuring that the county is put on par with other counties within Liberia.

 

Other members of the Bolloh Community that were inducted into office included Anthony Torboh, General Vice Chairman, Madam Beatrice N. Nimene, General Vice Chairlady.

 

The program was graced by Senator Joseph Nyenetue Nagbe, Sinoe County and Counselor Witness Doyen amongst others.
