-Margibi County District #1 Lawmaker Urges Citizens
Margibi County District #1 Representative, Pidelorsa Tarponweh wants Liberians to prioritize the cleaning of their environment as means of keeping healthy.
Representative Tarponweh spoke over the weekend in the Duazon Community, Margibi County when he and a youth group under the banner “Margibian Youth Movement for Empowerment Initiatives” commenced what they called time to time clear-up activity of their community.
After taking the lead to brush portion of the areas they were clearing, Rep. Tarponweh in an interview said he intends to make sure that the clearing-up initiative does not just end over the weekend, but wants it be one of his initiatives for the people of Margibi County.
According to him, the program will help with the empowerment of youths of that part of the country.
“I do not know what we can do without a good environment, like the saying goes, cleanliness is next to godliness,” the CDC lawmaker said.
When he was quizzed if the initiative was not just a political project to make him popular in the eyes of his constituency, Rep. Tarponweh said “people who know me for a while, in my private and public life they know my involvement because I placed emphasis on environment”. We have to take charge. Long before the election, I initiated a cleanup campaign from the military barrack to the RIA. This was done with my own resources,” he added.
According to him, now that he is a lawmaker, he will make sure that they keep the program.
Also speaking during the cleanup campaign was the head of the Margibian Youth Movement for Empowerment Initiatives, Newon Paye, he said when he visited the community, he noticed that some of the areas were filled with dirt, something he said captured his attention and intends to help with.
“I organized a group young people to make sure that we help with the cleaning of our own area. We do not have to wait for government to come clean our homes and soundings for us. That is why I decided to organize youths of the district,” Paye said.
