Former Grand Gedeh County Electoral District #2 Lawmaker, Kai Farley, was over the weekend commissioned as the new superintendent of the county.
Mr. Farley’s commissioning ceremony was as a result of his recent nomination by President George Weah, as well as his subsequent confirmation, by the Senate weeks ago.
Speaking at the Zwedru City Hall during the ceremony, Farley promised to open and recondition major streets within the city limits of Zwedru in his first 90 days in charge as superintendent.
Some political commentators in the County say the superintendent’s 90 day deliverables might not be achieved due to the absence of his two immediate deputies – the assistant superintendent for development and assistant superintendent for fiscal affairs.
According to them, in the absence of a county sitting no resolution can be reached to authorize the County’s superintendent to pursue the realization of his ninety-day plans.
Former assistant superintendent for fiscal affairs, Eric S.L. Momo, informed citizens and the new administration that the county is left with US$350,000) in its Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI) account, while L$19,000,000 is left in the county’s LBDI account.
Mr. Momo however informed the new administration that of the three hundred and fifty thousand United States dollars (US$350,000) left in the County’s coffers, the Grand Gedeh County Community College contractors have an outstanding payment of US$100,000.
Out-going superintendent, Peter Solo extended his profound thanks and appreciation to the citizens and partners in progress for their cordial relationship exhibited throughout his time of service.
