Sinoe County Development Superintendent Moses C. Tuwleh has disclosed that series of challenges are facing the current leadership of the county headed by Superintendent Prosper K. Brown. Mr. Tuwleh in a statement issued on Friday, 15 September in Greenville, Sinoe County said the lack of fund and vehicles are among some of the major problems confronting the county’s authorities.
He attributed the situation to the former leadership headed by ex-superintendent. Romeo Quioh’s alleged failure to submit a comprehensive report on past operations totaling US$1.7million.
Mr. Tuwleh said performance report on past expenditure should be made before approval of this year’s county development budget, adding that delay in in making report is creating a serious setback for the current leadership.
He called on the Sinoe County Legislative Caucus and the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning to prevail on former Superintendent Romeo Quioh and ex-development superintendent Sneh Johnson to submit report to the current leadership. He also said there is plan underway for the caucus to actively engage the Ministry of Finance on the passage of the county development fund.
The Sinoe County Development Superintendent asserted that the county had gone bankrupt before the ascendancy of the present leadership on May 28, 2016. According to him, this was impeding the progress of development in the county. M Mr. Tuwleh further said there are serial unfinished projects in the county that need to be completed. He named the competition of the Suay administrative building in Jeadepo Statutory district, among others.
Mr.Tuwleh added that currently, the county authority is involved in settling land disputes between various districts in the county.
