The newly inducted leadership of the Federation of Road Transport Union of Liberia (FRTUL) Nimba Branch, headed by the Lawrence W. Queeglay, Sr., has embarked on the construction of a “modern” terminal in the commercial city of Ganta, Nimba County to boost to the transport sector.
In an exclusive interview with Daily Observer in Ganta on July 2, 2015, Mr. Queeglay said the modern parking terminal, when completed will be the first facility to bring all the parking across Ganta to a centrally located area.
He said when the modern parking terminal is constructed; the several parking stations across Ganta will be consolidated, saving passengers from running all over in search of a vehicle to get to their respective destinations.
“Already, we have begun filling the swamp behind this terminal to create more space for the construction of the parking terminal that will host all the parking terminals in Ganta,” Mr. Queeglay said.
Mr. Queeglay and his corps of officers were elected on May 31, this year for the period of four years. They took over from Mr. Jerry Luogon, who has been in office for almost a decade.
Many persons had complained of the role of the FRTUL in terms of development with huge money being collected from drivers annually, but lack accountability to authenticate the impact of the said money.
But, Mr. Queeglay promised to be more accountable, while executing the duty of the office of the president of FRTUL (Nimba) with dedication and commitment to carry on tangible development to the expectation of the public.
