President George Manneh Weah has dedicated the newly renovated King Gray Market in the ELWA Community in Paynesville. During the dedication of the market on Friday, 13 July, President Weah assured Liberians that he is committed to working and changing the country for the better in spite of biting public criticisms of his government over the state of the economy and other national issues.
According to the Executive Mansion, President Weah says his government is not deterred by the ugly state of politics, noting that he is doing everything humanly possible to make Liberia a place for all Liberians to live and enjoy.
“…We are working to change and make Liberia a better place to live,” he says, and thanks marketers for their patience in awaiting the refurbished and standardized market.
“I want to thank you for your patience because I know when people want something, there are others that will be in the group to criticize for nothing. But you kept the hope alive and today you have a refurbished market,” President Weah notes.
He acknowledges the struggle the marketers of the King Gray Market have gone through and promises to deliver “good projects” for the betterment of all Liberians.
President Weah says his intention is to renovate markets all around the country, and announces that the Du-port Road Market will be his next target.
“Someone will ask why he is fixing markets. Well, market is part of our society and it has to be conducive,” he states.
He says he hopes to do his best within three years, while urging citizens to discuss issues rather than getting in the streets.
Mr. Weah encourages citizens to address their qualms in a peaceful and orderly manner to the rightful authorities. “We have six years here. Our government, if you noticed has started already. All of the things we said we were going to do in the six years when given the opportunity, we are doing them. I want you to be patient. We are hoping that our performance will allow you give us another six years,” he adds.
The dedication of the newly refurbished King Gray Market brings to two the number of markets President Weah has renovated and dedicated since he assumed office in January this year, according to the Executive Mansion. A little over a month ago, President Weah dedicated the Rehab Market, which he personally helped to renovate, the Mansion’s release concludes.
