The ” Weah for Clean Cities ” Initiative was launched by the Monrovia City Government to promote cleanliness in every city.
On every first Saturday, residents of Monrovia and its surrounding areas remain home from 7: 00AM to 10:00AM to clean their environment, something which has extended to other cities nationwide.
Phase three of the ” Weah for Clean City ” launched by Former Liberia Football Association (LFA) President Musa Hassan Bility witnessed the full participation of workers of MCC and over five hundred high school students.
Both workers of the Monrovia City Corporation and the students were involved in a vigorous awareness exercise; cautioning residents of Old Road to always keep their surroundings clean.
The students’ involvement according to them was in appreciation of President George Weah contribution to their education by paying the WASSCE fees of every 12th grader in Liberia.
They noted that the High school Students Association remains grateful to the President and will do everything possible to support the government Pro Poor agenda by meaningfully contributing to Liberia’ s growth through their volunteer services.
As part of the first Saturday cleanup exercise, the Mayor of Monrovia Jefferson T Koijee also dedicated three latrines in the densely populated Township of West Point. The latrines were renovated by Catholic Relief Services (CRS).
Mayor Koijee lauded CRS for renovating the three latrines which had been in deplorable conditions for several years.
According to Mayor Koijee, these latrines will greatly help the struggling residents of West Point.
He wants residents of West Point take full responsibility of consistently maintaining the cleanliness of these latrines.
In a related development, Mayor Jefferson Koijee has challenged Liberians to see Sports as one of the pivotal instruments to fast growth, job creation and lasting development in the Country.
According to him, Sports is just not a unifying tool but very powerful instrument for transformation and reconciliation.
He noted that Liberia has come a long way and with the leadership of President Weah he is certain that bigger things will happen for the people of this Country.
In a related development, Mayor Jefferson Koijee, has said he remains grateful to ‘detractors’ who are making him think about creative and innovative things as mayor of the city of Monrovia.
Addressing journalists at his regular monthly media briefing, the Mayor said the constant criticism was making his works hard. As such, he said they are working to create a city that will positively impact the lives of everyone.
According to him, criticisms are reminder for them to do their works as a government of the people from all sectors of the society.
“We will consistently pray for you. We will not be like governments of the past. For us, we believe in diversity in unity,” he said.
