By Thomas Domah/ Nimba County

Nimba County District #9 Representative Johnson N. Gwaikolo has dedicated several completed projects in his district, including a modern recording studio for youth involved in music production, a community radio station, and a district office, respectively.

Rep. Gwaikolo disclosed that these projects were undertaken by his office, including a modern ferry to ease the transportation needs of citizens, while creating employment.

He put the cost of the ferry that is yet to be officially dedicated as more than US$60,000.

He lauds citizens for collaborating with his office by providing local materials for the projects’ execution.

He says the initiatives are a means of bringing the citizens close to their lawmaker and promoting developmental activities in the district.

Representative Gwaikolo notes Yarwin Menhsonnoh district still lags behind in terms of development, compared to other districts in Nimba, but assures that with over 30 developmental activities under his watch, his constituents will benefit hugely.

The district#9 lawmaker continues that shortly he would introduce a bill in the House to draw government’s attention on his district, because former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf had announced it as a proposed capital.

District superintendent David Logbae Jacobs, says projects executed by their lawmaker have brought relief to the people of Yarwin Menhsonnoh.

Superintendent Jacobs reveals that several people have died as a result of lack of ferry to cross over the St. John River, but coming of a modern ferry will address this challenge they have faced since 1964. Editing by Jonathan Browne
