Nimba County Electoral district # 6 Representative Dorwohn T. Gleekia, writes the House of Representatives, requesting the body to invite the Chairman of the Liberia Land Authority (LLA) and its commissioners to address alleged land conflicts across the country.
According to Rep. Gleekia, over past time, there have been situations
involving land conflicts in his district, which he had informed the Liberia Land Authority about, but is yet to get redress.
He says for the past four years, there has been no legitimate and recognized representative of the LLA to handle land conflicts that continue to ensue within his
The lawmaker explains this is why he has formally communicated with the Chairman of the Liberia Land Authority about the prevailing situation and
recommended ways that could be helpful to remedying this matter but claims
there has been no recourse.
The Nimba lawmaker laments the situation is breeding tribal and regional conflicts
amongst the over 50,000 Liberians they represent in Nimba and other parts of Liberia.
He says they have exhausted almost all efforts in handling this issue with the Liberia Land Authority but to no avail therefore, having him to request that authorities at the LLA be made to appear before plenary to explain their refusal to address the plight of the people.By Bridgett Milton
