Margibi County District#4 Representative Ben A. Fofana pledges to work in ensuring the Booker Washington Institute in Kakata, Margibi becomes a technical school.
He made the vow while reporting to his constituents covering his performance for both the 53rd and 54th National Legislature.
Representative Fofana recalls the bill seeking to legislate BWI as a technical school has reached as far as the Liberian Senate, but didn’t succeed.
The Margibi lawmaker says he will in accordance with law reintroduce the bill and will work very hard this time around to making it successful.
The Booker Washington Institute, named in honor of the late African-American educator, Booker Washington, offers vocational and academic studies to Liberians from across the country.
Meanwhile, program marking Rep. Fofana’s report saw the presence of Speaker Bhofal Chambers and several lawmakers, local authorities, and ordinary Margibians held recently at the Philadelphia Church in Kakata, Margibi County
Fofana recounts several projects initiated both from 53rd Legislature to present, noting that he was successful in making available tangibles for his people.
“We constructed a police deport, constructed women guest house; we renovated an elementary annex of Lango Lappaye Junior High School; we constructed peace hall for women in Larkata Township; we constructed new annex for Peter Slocum Orphange Home; we constructed an annex for Cuttington University College to provide conducive learning environment for our young people in Kakata City, we built a concrete footpath between Jambo Village and Gio Quarter; we provide scholarship and man power development.”
Rep. Fofana also reveals micro loans were provided to rural women, including support to individual citizens.
