The tour, which will be the first since the inauguration of President Weah in 2018, is aimed at affording the President the opportunity to access the road conditions, as well as the living conditions of the inhabitants in rural Liberia. Though the trip was previously planned for early January, it was postponed to mid-February.
According to toby, this time around, the President will not postpone his trip because he is upbeat to hit the road, bragging that it is going to be an elaborate trip.
Toby further disclosed that, while the President is touring the counties, he will at the same time, use the opportunity to dedicate some completed projects that he has undertaken by monies from national government and that of his personal coffers.
Addressing Executive Mansion Reporters on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 in Monrovia, Toby named counties such as Margibi, Bong, Nimba, Grand Gedeh, Maryland, Sinoe, Rivercess amongst others as counties that fall within the first leg of President Weah’s nationwide tour.
The deputy presidential press secretary noted that those selected counties are expected to benefit from the President’s kind gesture, which could be infrastructure development such as road, education and health.
“ There will be something important that the president will be involved with for all those lineup counties. If it is not infrastructure related, it will be heath related, education related, road related. For example, the project consisting the housing units in Sass Town is completed and will be dedicated,” he stated.
Toby mentioned that the people of Ganta, Nimba County will benefit from a modern new market structure, which the President will dedicate during his tour.
“The President is decentralizing his infrastructure development, ensuring that it is not only about Montserrado County but that all counties benefit from what he intends to do,” he added.
