After so many years of controversy surrounding the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) Headquarters, the Union’s president Charles Coffey has disclosed that the his leadership is at the verge of sealing a construction agreement with a Liberia construction company to construct PUL’s new headquarters.
Mr. Coffey made the disclosure in an interview recently with a team of reporters at his office on Clay Street in Monrovia.
The previous regime of former President Ellen Johnson – Sirleaf contributed US$100,000 towards the union’s headquarters project, but it has since witnessed internal conflict that has stalled the work.
According to Coffey, the Liberian construction company [will] generate the money that will be spent on the project, after which the facility will be turned over to the PUL as per the ongoing agreement.
The PUL boss narrates that the organization’s legal team and the company’s legal team are almost concluding all legal modalities to begin the construction work.Since the establishment of the PUL in 1964, it has not been able to build its own headquarters.By Ben P. Wesee–Edited by Winston W. Parley
