President of Liberia, George Weah has reaffirmed his commitment to improving the living condition of the citizens of the country.
Weah made this declaration on Wednesday, August 17, during his continued nationwide tour, otherwise called ‘The citizen’s engagement initiative’ in District #5, Montsererado County.
As usual on his tour across the country since last year, thousands of citizens came out to meet and interact with the President; this time at the Paynesville Town Hall, District.
Elated Weah also thanked the crowd who gathered at the District #5 town hall meeting for their warm reception and for allowing him to serve the people of Liberia.
“The confidence you reposed in me is something for which I can’t fail you, he said”.
Addressing the citizens, the Liberian Leader briefed them on his achievements regarding finished and ongoing development initiatives he began during his presidency and promised that much work would be completed for the benefit of the nation and people if allowed to serve for another term of office.
In his words, “We are investing in every sector of our society. We have already done so much to improve our economy and other sectors consistent with our development agenda.”
Apart from the countless development initiatives already achieved like the building of hospitals, schools, and roads and awarding free education among others, he also emphasized the need for more development plans across the Country.
He said, “It’s time to move forward with more development. It is time to do the right thing. And together, we will achieve greater things.”
In his response to the citizens’ requests for a resource centre and a market, the President also promised to build the Resource Center for the Youth once the land was secured and proven to be free of conflict.
He further instructed the Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE) to immediately conduct an assessment to renovate the Paynesville Market.
Also, Weah has reaffirmed his pledge to build a new, bigger state-of-the-art referral hospital or another John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital.
On the request for a loan by marketers, Weah said US$2m has been approved for rural women and marketers across the Country. But he advised the marketers to work with their lawmakers who led the way on how the loan can be accessed.
Importantly, the President as a Former United Nations Peace Ambassador has called on the citizenry to keep the peace in the country.
He said, “With peace, our country will develop; with peace, you can be leaders tomorrow; and with peace, everything we want is achievable”
He also urged citizens of the district, mainly the young people to make use of the public properties but to desist from destroying them saying, it is a disincentive for the government which is deploying scarce resources to make them happy and productive.
