The commissioner’s compound in the Bain-Gar Administrative District is in a very deplorable condition in Nimba County thereby creating serious concerns among the residents.An elder identified as Saye Paye said the county’s administrators have failed to make allocation in the national budget to carryout developments in the district.
Elder Paye recalled that the commissioner’s compound in Zuluyee Town was constructed in the early 2009 by the UNDP during President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s administration.
During a tour in Zuluyee Town recently, it was observed that the back and front doors of the administrative compound have been removed while there are visible leakages in almost all of the offices as well as on top of the building; few of the employees were seen sitting idle in the front of the administrative building along with the Commissioner, Amos Gbatu.
Commissioner Gbatu expressed dissatisfaction over the deplorable condition of the administrative building in the district and added that the district even lacks government clinic, safe drinking water, among other basic needs to cater to residents in the district.
He said if nothing is done to repair the building which now lies in ruins, the image of the county administration and the Legislative Caucus in the County will remain daunted and that will be a disgrace to the entire district.
Commissioner Gbatu said several letters have been written to the county administration informing them about the plight of the residents as well as the condition of the district seat yet, there has been no response.
“it is just because my assignment is in Zuluyee Town because as a commissioner, I represent the Bain- Garr Administrative District. Though I live in Ganta City, I pay LD 400 on motorcycle every day to report to work,” Commissioner Gbatu complained.
