Citizens of Mboo Statutory District in Margibi County District #2 have started a fundraising campaign under the banner “Operation to Help Construct a Public Building for Mboo Statutory District,” with the aim of raising US$35,00 to construct an administrative building.
According to Mboo Statutory District Superintendent Mr. Charles S. Karlon, since the establishment of Mboo through an Act passed by the Legislature, it has been unable to have its own office space. Superintendent Karlon says, the lack of office space for public officials in that part of the county has been a huge challenge for the residents of Mboo.
As appointed officials, he says following a mass meeting with residents in and out of Liberia, they have all reached a decision to start a campaign that will enable them to raise some money to build office space that will benefit the Government of Liberia and residents of the district.
Mr. Karlon notes that though they appreciate past and present leaders for paving the way for Mboo’s operations in the county, it is now time for citizens residing in Margibi to consider the institution as their own by contributing to the campaign. MrKarlon further mentions that when the building is completed and dedicated, it will serve as motivation for other districts, communities and counties across the country not to just wait for the government to carry on development in their various places but work together to get what they need within their districts.
Meanwhile, the Mboo Statutory District Superintendent has called on the county authorities, local leaders, humanitarians, international NGOs and meaningful Margibians to help support the effort of Mboo residents in order to keep their dreams alive and be more encouraged to carry out more projects within their district.
