The initiative is in fulfillment of a promised he made to them during the dedication of the previous 50 homes to fire victims and other surrounding residents in 2019. President Weah and his entourage touring the new homes in the Popo Beach Community said he was impressed with the level of work done by LACE. According to him, his vision is to ensure that his people benefit from his mission of transforming the country in all sectors, especially now with infrastructure development.
Providing additional information about the new initiative, the Executive Director of LACE, Mr. Pepci Quiwu Yeke, said about sixty people will now live in the new and modern homes unlike before. He said the additional 39 homes is the second phase of the project as the third phase is expected to begin in two to three months’ time. According to him, the entire project, which costs over US$3m is intended to, among other things, put smiles on the faces of the ordinary people and to give them additional hopes, nothing that thePro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development( PAPD) is working for them. Well in a happy mood some of the beneficiaries of the housing units thanked President Weah and his government for fulfilling his promise made to them.
They said, unlike before, their community is very beautiful and is like a small Weah’s Estate. Still in District 16, Montserrado County, the Liberian leader took a guarded inspection tour of the ongoing Duala Market project where he appreciated the LACE Boss for what he described as an exceptional work he and his team members are doing. “I have placed explicit confidence in K to work and he is exhibiting that to the core of which I must commend him,” President Weah added. Whilst encouraging other government officials to step up to their respective games and to do more work in the interest of the masses this 2021, he also urged Mr. Yeke to continue his good work for his people.
President Weah viewing the project as a means of security, recommended to the contractors to see the need to extend the fence and place lights to further help secure the project. Commenting more about his Government’s projects over the period, President Weah stated that what has been lacking in the past is exactly what his government is doing and will do more for the betterment of the nation and its people. Meanwhile, the Duala Market Project, which is still in its embryonic stage, according to the contractors, will be fully ready for dedication in six months’ time, but President Weah was quick to encourage them to work harder to ensure that the project is completed before the scheduled time.
