The Grand Gedeh county lawmaker made the statement Thursday when citizens of the chiefdom gowned he and his wife for identifying with them in difficult times but called on him to ensure that their roads are rehabilitated in order to have access.
In a special statement read during the honoring program, the citizens lamented that the chiefdom has been marginalized due to the lack of roads, bridges, something they said is undermining the efforts of their lawmaker.
“We want you to note that due to the continue deplorable condition of our roads and bridges, the chiefdom has been marginalized and deprived of developmental freedom by the past Unity Party local government officials in the county. They failed to know that Ploe chiefdom is part of Liberia,” the citizens said in a statement.
Due to the lack of roads, the citizens said they have missed opportunities from the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), especially the quick impact project.
They named good education system, health facilities, handpumps as some of the basic things the chiefdom lacks.
Responding to the needs of the citizens, Representative, Alex Chersia Grant assured them that he will with God’s power ensure that the chiefdom gets roads to ease the diffuclties faced by the citizens in that part of his district.
According to Representative Grant, the engineers from the Ministry of Public works have already carried on their assessment on the 51kilometers road geared toward its rehabilitation.
The CDC’s stalwart said the administration of President George Weah cares for the people and as such, discussions are underway to address the needs of the people.
Representative Grant however called on the citizens to hold together because development comes with unity.
