LNP Building Turns Death Trap In Ganta

A deplorable building hosting the police in Ganta City has turned a death trap and is creating fear among the residents in Nimba County.
Old man Joseph Dahn, a concerned resident, is calling on the government to demolish the building and construct a modern one which will be presentable and used for police operations in the county.
Dahn explained that it is because of the deplorable condition of the building, marketers have taken over the area and are using building as stalls though the building is expected to collapse at any moment posting threat to dwellers and buyers as well the marketers.
According to report gathered by this paper, the building was constructed during the regime of former President Samuel K. Doe but because of the alleged failure of the past and present LNP administrations to renovate the building, the entire compound remain in ruins even up to present.
The deplorable building according to LNP source is used to host newly assigned Police officers from headquarter or any part of the country who are assigned in the county and are still struggling to survive and get established before finding decent dwelling homes.
Madam Rebecca Tuah, another resident, who is accusing the CDC-led government for its alleged failure to settle national issues gear toward strengthening the security sector stated further that the government could easily renovate the deplorable LNP building and use it for barrack.
Since the building turned a death trap years ago, local authorities showering praises on the Weah-led government and seeking his re-election seem to play blind eye on the main issues affecting the county.
Even now, residents of Ganta are going about their normal business as PSU deploys apparently for the election, but report gathered is that the Police Station in Ganta being used as the barrack is a serious challenge for the PSU in the county.
When this paper contacted LNP Commander in Ganta, Archie Dennis, he referred this paper to the LNP authority in Sanniquellie and when Commander Augustine Wari was contacted, he said that he is not clothed with the authority to speak to press.
