Senator Thomas S. Grupee of Nimba County says roads connectivity in Liberia is one of the major concerns of citizens. Speaking to reporters in Nimba County, he says if President George Weah connected all 15 counties with paved roads, it would enable farmers to have access to roads network to transport goods to market and basic health needs, among others.
Grupee, who hails from the former ruling Unity Party, says this was the same dream his political leader and former Vice President of Liberia, Joseph N. Boakai had when he went to the 2017 elections.
He notes that farmers are willing to produce more food, but bad roads continue to frustrate such effort.Senator Grupee made the observation during a recent visit by President George Weah to Nimba to turn over the ongoing Ganta-Yekepa Road.
The project started during the administration of former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in collaboration with ArcelorMittal, a mining company in the country.
