Margibi Senator J. Emmanuel Nuquay has broken grounds for the construction of a bridge on the road leading to Garmaymu and Dorma towns in lower Margibi.
Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, Senator Nuquay expressed gratitude to residents of the towns and the entire Margibi for electing him to serve them and assure them of his commitment to helping develop the county.
“Besides the bridge project, I came in contact with Mr. Jonathan Lolo, chair for the mamba kaba youth who requested that we build a youth center for you people, so I told him I don’t want to lie to you because we are in an electoral process but let work together after the elections. So we are also here to raise money for the bridge and the youth center both projects cost is US$54,000,” Nuqauy explained to the gathering.
Meanwhile, Senate pro tempore Albert Chie launched the rally through the chairman on the executive at the Liberian senate Saah Joseph with US$10,000 followed by Montserrado senator Saah Joseph with US$5,000 and 200 begs of cement.
Others who were in attendance and made pledges include Deputy Speaker J. Fonati Koffa US $8,000 Rep. Edward Kafia US$5,000 Rep. Clarence Garh US $2,000 Rep. Ellen Attoh-Wreh US$1,500 Rep. Ben A. Fofana US$2,000 Rep. Tibelrosa Tarpoweh US $5,000.
A total amount of US$11,000 was also provided by other officials who made their contribution through their proxies.
