President George Manneh Weah, has commissioned the electrification of Sasstown City in Grand Kru County.
At the commissioning ceremony, President Weah said providing electricity to rural parts of Liberia, including Sasstown, is part of the Government’s developmental drive to decentralize country’s resources.
Early Sunday morning, members of the Special Presidential Street Lighting taskforce were seen erecting poles and installing solar panels in Sasstown City.
The streets and 500 homes in Sasstown are expected to receive light during the first phase.
During a formal ceremony recently to light up the streets of Monrovia and its environs, Dr. Weah promised to extend the project to other parts of the country.
While touring countless communities in the countryside, the President promised locals that his government would, amongst other things, ensure development is spread out across the country, including electrification of their towns and cities.
