The Board Chair of the Liberia Airport Authority (LAA) ex-senator Gbehzohngar M. Findley says Liberian airports are faced with serious maintenance problem since the end of the civil war.
Mr. Findley says all of the country’s airport facilities have not received the level of support needed over the years to effectively serve the public. He says the Board has oversight for all airports in Liberia and it is a big challenge because the level of maintenance is very poor, noting that right now the LAA is rebuilding and constructing some of its facilities, while managing with others.
He noted that for the past years, the Board decided to reconstruct the runway and a new terminal at the Roberts International Airport in Margibi County, and hopes before the end of the administration, the project will be completed.
Speaking to this paper Tuesday, the former Senate President Pro-Tempore disclosed that in the pending elections next year, he will play a role, but couldn’t say for now where he will be contesting or which party he may join.
Findley has been a staunch supporter of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
