Weah Asks For Citizens’ Patience …Boasts of Unmatched Achievements

By Alex Yomah
President George Manneh Weah has reiterated his appeals to Liberians to exercise a little more patience by allowing his administration the chance to rebuild the country for all citizens.
The Liberian leader’s plea was contained in his comments recounting that despite the corona virus pandemic, his government has not been distracted; bragging that the country’s developmental drive is still intact.
“We are building your roads particularly the Tappita to Zwedru City Road as well as connecting Harper-Maryland to other major corridors. That, I can guarantee you a success story,” he stated on Wednesday, February 24, 2021 in Harper, when he addressed Marylanders as part of his ongoing nation-wide tour across Liberia.
“This government has done more in three years than any administration and we will continue to do more but just give us chance to complete our works that are in progress,” Weah told residents in that part of the country.
He added, “To develop a nation is a process and not an event; it is time to plan and implement. Today, we are at the midpoint of our six years’ term. During the first three years, we planted the seeds of development and today we have begun to see the fruits”.
“Despite the significant difficulties that overcome you due to the downturn in businesses and investments last year as a direct result of the coronavirus, we have continue to do the peoples work and our development agenda has not been derailed,” the Chief Executive reported to his citizens.
President Weah told his supporters to be proud of their government, asserting that the Pro- poor agenda introduced by the CDC-led government is making positive impacts across Liberia.
Weah named the construction of housing units in every county; the declaration of a free-tuition scheme at all public colleges and public universities; the payment of the WASSCE fees and advanced training for doctors and nurses; upgrading major public facilities including those in the health sector; placing 2000 doctors and nurses on payroll; the construction of modern markets; planting of street lights in cities; paving the highways and major feeder roads; the recently announced availability of US$16m for private sector farmers; the availability of US$ 2m as loan intended for rural women and marketers among others as achievements carried out within the three years in spite of the daunting challenges.
Meanwhile, President Weah has promised to build two technical vocational schools in Harper City and Pleebo Solokan District, Maryland County having broken grounds for a 21.3 MW Mini Hydro to supply electricity in the region.
