Due to numerous faulty street lights at major intersections across Monrovia posing serious traffic congestion for vehicles and pedestrians, Gbarpolu County electoral district one Representative Alfred Koiwood has written the plenary of the House of Rewpresentatives to invite the Minister of Public Works to explain what he knows about such situation in the city.
In his communication, Representative Koiwood alleged that Minister Mabutu Nyenpan and officials at the Ministry of Public Works are allegedly exhibting ‘laissefaire attitude’ with regard to the reconditioning of non-functioning traffic lights in and around monrovia.
According to him, his research has unveiled that the Ministry of Public Works is under obligation to install and maintain traffic lights across the country.
“My concern has been drawn to the abandonment of nearly all the traffic lights in and around Monrovia, thus causing huge traffics, which sometimes result into motor accidents. This lackadaisical behavior being displayed by the Ministry of Public Works is posing serious threats to motorists and pedestrains,” Representative Koiwood said in his communication.
Meanwhile, the Gbarpolu County lawmaker is seeking the indulgence of his colleagues to intervene by inviting the Minister of Public Works to give reason as to why the malfunctioning of traffic lights in and around Monrovia are left unattended.
After the reading of the communication, it was forwarded to the House’s committee on Public Works for investigation before inviting the Minister of Public Works.
