Southeastern Pro-Democracy Group Extols Chico

The Civil Society Construction Watch, a pro-democracy institution based in the southeastern part of Liberia, has lauded the Management of CHICO for its commitment towards roads-connectivity across the country.
The Group, predominantly made of youths and student groupings hailing from the Southeast, said the ongoing construction works along the Karloken to Fish Town Corridor represent a significant milestone in the Road Sector, as the Southeast has long suffered the perennial issue of bad roads.
The Civil Society Construction Watch through its National Chairman, Alfred Teah, intimated that CHICO is more than a construction company due to its citizen-friendly construction model which provides the framework for empowerment of the locals in various project areas across the country.
They view the contribution of CHICO towards the achievement of the Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development as pertinent towards the socio-economic development, noting that the “road to development begins with roads”.
The Group maintained that the ongoing construction works in the Southeast, particularly the Karloken-Fish Town Road and other parts of the country including the Gbarnga-Salayea Corridor are a testament of the People’s Republic of China’s desire to contribute to the reconstruction drive of Liberia, a country once dubbed as a pariah state owing to years of civil, political unrest within the Mano River Union Basin.
“CHICO has over the years provided job opportunities for scores of Liberians as a means of aiding the social development of cross-sections of young people, many of whom are victims of the civil strife in the country,” averred the group’s Chairman Teah.
Meanwhile, the Civil Society Construction Watch has condemned recent media report targeted at CHICO, terming it as a smear campaign designed to distract the company from ensuring that roads-connectivity is a must under the current dispensation.
The Group stated over the weekend to reporters in Monrovia that CHICO remains committed to the protection of its workers, irrespective of their nationality.
It can be recalled that CHICO in December 2020 committed to the Government of Liberia’s vision to improve the status of major roads across the country.
The Company has since made quality and professionalism as important hallmarks as it joins partners in the development of Liberia by and through the Infrastructure Sector.
