Margibi County District #1 Lawmaker, Representative Tibelrosa Summoh Tarponweh, has donated one hundred thousand (100,000) Liberian Dollars to residents of the Diggsville Community in the Schiefflin Township to buttress their efforts in obtaining electricity.
Through the intervention of the Margibi County Lawmaker, the Dr. Clarke Rock Crusher Company, which operates within the vicinity of the community, recently agreed to provide the community with electricity as part of the company’s corporate social responsibilities.
The leadership of the community has therefore begun soliciting funds to connect other households to have access to the electricity.
Donating the cash to the community Leadership, Representative Tarponweh informed the gathering that the cash is his initial contribution towards making sure other households benefit from the facility.
The Margibi County #1 Lawmaker also disclosed that the electrification of the Robert International Airport highway project is ongoing and will be completed in July 2021.
“While we await the entire electrification of the Robert International Airport highway, our people cannot be in darkness. That’s why we are exerting efforts to help our people have access to electricity temporarily.
This cash will aid to purchase materials to connect other households. We invited the Liberia Electricity Corporation Project Management Team at my office to understand the status of the RIA Highway electrification project.
We were informed that the project is expected to conclude in July next year. Let’s continue to exercise patience”, Representative Tarponweh lamented.
Receiving the cash on behalf of the community, the Diggsville Community Youth Chairman, Perry Hangar, thanked the Lawmaker, terming the gesture as “timely and a blessings.
The community leadership also appealed to the Margibi County Lawmaker to construct a hand pump and a palava hut within their community.
