A local group “Friends of Allen Gayweh” or FAG, has broken grounds for the construction of a modern peace house in Zahn GbotunTonwin, district#8 in Nimba County. The group’s chair Lawrence Guanue, said the peace house is intended to provide citizens of the town basic needs.
He said Mr. Allen Gayweh, who lives in the United States of America, is funding the project. Lawrence told The NewDawnNimba correspondent that the “Friends of Allen Gayweh” will be involved in many development initiatives in the district.
According to him, towns and villages in district#8 will benefit from the efforts, and puts the estimated cost of the peace house at US$2,510. Lawrence added that the group will help to provide self-drinking water to all parts of the district, among others.
Citizens of the town celebrated for the level of development their son, Allen Gayweh, is involved with in the area, noting that since the town was established they had not have access to basic needs such as road network, school, and drinking water, among others.
The chief of the town, Amos Saye, thanked Mr. Allen Gayweh for breaking grounds to construct a peace house, which he said will help to promote unity and development. Chief Saye said the town has a population of about 5,000 residents, but lacks toilets and safe drinking water.
He called on government to undertake a quick impact project by providing additional hand pumps. By Franklin Doloquee
