The Representative of Margibi District #1 has embarked on the construction of a modern high school in the district.
Speaking to this paper yesterday at the project site, Representative Roland Opee Cooper said the construction of the high school in Duazohn is part of government’s one hundred and fifty days’ deliverables aimed at buttressing efforts to provide quality education and conducive learning atmosphere for Liberian children.
He named other facilities in the construction as modern library, clinic, resource center, water, among others.
Representative Cooper said since Duazohn got a township status it has not benefitted from the construction of any high school in spite of its huge population.
According to him, the estimated cost of the school project US$150,000.
“Yesterday we were connecting Duazohn to Robertsfield Highway. Today we are building high school and tomorrow we will be constructing a modern administration building,” he noted.
Representative Cooper also said in six months he has known what the people want as well as who they want to work with.
He disclosed having a meeting with the Management of Firestone Liberia on the improvement of other elementary schools in its concession areas that are parts of the district.
Representative Cooper observed that the district lacks police depot, which he promised will soon be constructed as soon as possible to enable residents of the township move about freely.
Meanwhile, the Margibi District One Representative has assured citizens of of the county, especially those hailing from district one that he would lobby with his colleagues at the Lower House to ensure that they (citizens) benefit in terms of education and other developments.
