The City, with about thirty seven years of existence, is now electrified with solar panel lights under the auspices of the Liberian leader and the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC)- led Government unlike before. The initiative is part of a commitment made to the people of Liberia by President Weah that he will electrify all major cities across, something that is now being manifested. As he walked from one light pole to the other while switching on the street lights, he referenced the Holy Bible, saying “Let there be Light and there was Light”. He reiterated his government’s drive to do what others did not do for the betterment of the larger society.
The project, which is in continuation of the Presidential Electrification Project, is intended to give the people hope and to remove the darkness and replace them with lights. Currently, scores of communities and counties are now benefiting from the project as more are expected to be done in the coming days, weeks and months. The project, according to the Liberian leader, is funded by the Government of Liberia (GoL) and is now adding value and beauty to the affected communities, cities and many others as well as providing safety/ security and gradual economic growth to the people.
In a joyous appreciation, the people of Bomi showered praises on President Weah for being a “talk and do leader “and assured him that they will work together in order to help to be security and to as well properly manage and protect the meaningful and timely project given to them. In a related development, President Weah has dedicated the newly built modern office complex of the National Social Security and Welfare Corporation (NASSCORP). The multipurpose regional office complex will serve NASSCORP's clients and beneficiaries in Bomi, Gbarpolu and Grand Cape Mount Counties as well as provides banking (SIB) services to the populace.
President Weah also broke ground for the construction of 200 pro-poor housing units in Bomi County. The NASSCORP office building is a commitment to serving all clients and beneficiaries, the President noted, adding that it will save faraway citizens time, energy and other resources in getting to Monrovia to transact their activities. "Pease make maximum use of this facility,” he cautioned the rural people. Upon arrival in Bomi Monday, the president got swarmed up by citizens who congratulated him on his massive transformation strides since his ascendency. They voiced out challenges plaguing their communities and called on the president to intervene. Immediately, the president received the requests, promising his government's commitment to making rural Liberians and their communities’ equal beneficiaries of the nation's resources.
