An Islamic Cleric in Gbarnga City Bong County is urging the Liberian Government to equally share what he calls the national cake.
Speaking at the weekend when he delivered the keynote address at the official program marking the induction of officers-elect of the Bong County Civil Society Organizations, Alfred W. Taiker Weyah said it is expedient enough for government to equally subsidize the activities of all civil society organizations across the country.
Weyah said Teachers, Doctors, Marketers, Law enforcement Officers and other Civil Society members should be given equal opportunity so that every sector of the society can operate effectively without problem.
According to him, only Monrovians are benefiting from the Educational Health care and other services of the Liberian government. “It is like the government does not care about the well being of we the rural dwellers,” Weyah laments.
He asserted that rural dwellers are without quality Education, farm to market roads, and Health care security among others.
Meanwhile, George S. Johnson the newly inducted Chairman of the Bong County Civil Society Organization has vowed to constructively engage central government for the bitterness of Bong County.
In his induction speech, Johnson called on all Civil Society groups in the county, including Marketers, Teachers, and Women groups, Lawyers among others to rally around him and other leaders of the organization and support every effort.
He said, Unity, Dialogue and Constructive engagement will be the hallmark of his administration.
Those inducted into office for four year tenure are, George S. Johnson Chairman, Arthur F. Mulbah Vice Chairman, Rose Sali Secretary General and Rev. Nathaniel M. Smith Financial Secretary.
