The president of the republic of Liberia H.E. Dr George Manneh Weah calls on all Liberians to expand development of all forms to the rest of the country, he made this pronouncement during the bicentennial celebrations.
The event which started with a parade on the principal streets of Monrovia early Monday morning was graced by; The President of Gambia, the President of Sierra Leone, the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Presidents of Togo, and the president of Niger.
“Rural-urban migration is another problem we need to fix together, because our once beautiful Capital City, Monrovia, is already overcrowded, leading to all the problems brought on by congestion, such as lack of adequate housing, sanitation, health, and educational facilities, among others. He added that it was never designed to hold the large percentage of our population who now live in it.” George Weah said.
The country has been facing problems such as lack of electricity, health, sanitation, educational facilities, jobs creation among others since the civil war
“This must include the provision of affordable and reliable electricity throughout the country, which should spur industrialization and manufacturing that will create jobs and add value to our natural resources saying We should also work together to expand development in all of its forms to the rest of the country so that our citizens do not see Monrovia as the only decent place to live and work, that this should be an effective panacea to curb urban migration.” He added.
