Minister Sonii pointed out that the ministry will use the registration roster of schools to aid in the distribution process. "This donation will go a long way even though we have some shortcomings. But again, this donation will go a long way. We will start the donation beginning with Nimba, Bong, Bassa, Grand Cape Mount, Bomi and Gbarpolu Counties," he asserted. "Maryland and other coastal counties will be sent through boat. We need to also ensure that the private schools perform because without them we will not achieve anything in the educational sector, so they too, will be included in this distribution," he noted.
