Mining company MNG Gold has resumed the construction of a modern clinic in Kokoyah District in an effort to provide proper health care for residents.Several projects initiated by the mining company came at a standstill in Sayweh Town, as a result of the coronavirus crisis in the country.
Speaking to journalists at the project site, Lloyd Ngwayah, the Public Relations Officer of the company, says despite the challenges in the procurement process of the necessary construction materials and observing all the health protocols, the institution has resumed normal works on the clinic.He reveals that the Turkish mining company is wielding all efforts in order to fulfill promises made to the company’s affected communities in the district of Representative Albert Hills.
At the same time, Mr. Ngwayah confirms that the company is expected to embark on construction and rehabilitation of several feeder roads linking Dolo and New Town, U-lah as well as Camp -2 Town in Boinsein Administrative District. Road connectivity remains a major challenge in Kokoya and other districts in Bong.
Our correspondent says when rehabilitated, the road will create free movement of goods and services in that part of the county.Lloyd Ngwayah then notes that the reconstruction of the vocational school will start very soon. The school initiated by MNG Gold will help many young people in Kokoya and Bong County as well.
“You know we don’t just want to be here working without help to provide some vocational opportunities for our people, so the company deemed it necessary to build the school,” Lloyd adds.The vocational school which was almost at the stage of completion, gutted fire last year and the cause of the fire has not been fully established.
Even though the MNG PRO did not state when the two projects will be completed, he tells journalists that all the necessary materials are available and there will be no standstill of the projects until they are fully completed and dedicated.
