Ministry of Public Works (MPW’s) Project Implementation Unit Chief Supervisor Winnerford Prout Richards says Chinese expatriates constructing a China – Aid Ministerial Complex in Oldest Congo Town are worried over the October’s elections, inquiring from him if something wrong will not happen to the project.
Mr. Richards recently told journalists that he has been confronted by the head of the Chinese expatriates here who continues to inquire from him if something wrong will not happen to the ongoing construction of the Ministerial Complex project in the wake of the 10 October presidential and representatives’ elections.
He discloses that in order to alleviate the fear of the expatriates and reassure them of government’s security protection, officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) have been deployed at the project site in Oldest Congo Town, suburb of Monrovia.
According to Richards, the Chinese expatriates are raising concern about the fate of the multi -million dollars project because the Government of China has invested so much in it and doesn’t want anything wrong to affect it.
The Project Supervisor furthers that the Chinese expatriates are concerned that it would be a serious setback to Liberia’s ongoing infrastructure recovery process if something wrong happened to the Ministerial Complex in a probable election dispute.
As a result, the MPW official calls on Liberians and political parties to talk to their respective supporters to avoid violence and do everything humanly possible to ensure a violent free election which will encourage the country’s partners in progress to invest more in the rebuilding process of Liberia.- By Emmanuel Mondaye -Edited by Winston W.
