Vice President Taylor Chides UP’s Boakai Again

Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor has again slammed Unity Party’s standard bearer Joseph N. Boakai for what she termed “his failure to pave his home road, after serving for 12 years in government.”

Madam Taylor made the statement over the weekend in Gbarnga, Bong County, when she appeared on a radio simulcast.

The current Vice President believes that the inability of the former Vice President to pave his home road during their 12 year regime shows his inability to lead the developmental agenda of the country.

She believes that there will be no impact if the Liberian people elect Boakai as President, on grounds that while he was the Vice President for 12 years, his people did not benefit from the massive development they are now benefiting under the regime of the CDC government.

She further boasted that the government of Liberia will begin the asphalt pavement of the Totota-Sanoyea-Gbonota- Phebe parking route, which is her own home road in the County, in the next couple of weeks.

VP Taylor said the pavement of the road has been delayed because of all the necessary processes that have to be met before the process starts.

“Before a pavement of such starts, it needs to satisfy all those contractual requirements, including bids from National and international road-building companies, and later, awarding of said contract. To meet all these requirements, a significant amount of time is needed,” she told Bongese.

She said all the necessary processes have now reached the concluding levels and the pavement will start in the shortest time possible.

When paved, the route will provide easy access to road users plying the route. It will also connect Bong and Gbarpolu counties easily.

Meanwhile, Vice President Taylor has hailed President George Manneh Weah for his government’s meaningful contributions to Bong County.

Madam Taylor said under President Weah’s government, the county has seen significant improvement in almost all sectors.

She named the improvement of the Bong County Technical College, the completion of the controversial Gbenequelleh Clinic, the payment of WAEC fees for 12th graders, the electrification of Gbarnga, the expansion of the C.B Dunbar Hospital, the construction of the Central Bank Regional Cash Hub, the ongoing construction of an additional high school, and the completion of the Gbarnga Broad Street cement pavement, as monumental achievements of the county, under the CDC-led government.

“Though the BCTC is not at a satisfactory level, the work done by the current regime should be appreciated by all well-meaning Bongese,” Madam Taylor said.

The Bong County daughter then called on all Bongese to rally their support for the reelection bid of President George M. Weah.

She explained that the president needs another term to complete all of the development projects his government has initiated across the country.
