According to a release, the ceremony brought together officials of the county, including Acting Superintendent Gimmy Kamara, Acting City Mayor Bizzie, other assigned officials of the ministries of Education, Labour, Public Works, Internal Affairs, LISGIS, General Services Agency, Church Leaders and opinion leaders in the county.
Acting Superintendent Kamara lauded President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Postmaster General Frederick Norkeh and the Universal Postal Union for the relentless efforts exerted, which led to the dedication of the Voinjama Post.
“Although it wasn’t possible to dedicate Voinjama Post Office during the July 26 Independence Day Anniversary celebrated in our County, we are quite grateful that today marks the day God designed for Voinjama Post to be dedicated to serve our people”, Acting Superintendent Kamara said. The Minister of Posts and Telecommunications Ferdrick Norkeh said the dedication of the facility means a lot for the people of Lofa.
He encouraged all to make maximum use of the various services available to them now thru Voinjama Post; “instead of going to Monrovia for such services which is quite costly, these same services are now available at Voinjama Post with the staff set to serve”, the Minister said and added, “building post offices and windows at strategic areas throughout rural Liberia will greatly reduce the burden of poverty on the citizenry.”
Deputy Posts Minister Dolomengi said in accordance with the Ministry’s mandate to develop and promote a people-friendly postal industry, the Voinjama Post will strive to provide postal services such as Letter posts, parcel posts, registered & expressed mail, Expedited Mail Services (EMS), Book posts, Small packets, philatelic (stamp sale), Institutional and Home mail delivery and sales of variety of post cards, among other services.
