-Formally breaks ground to complete project in seven months
The formal groundbreaking ceremony of a US$60,000 multi-purpose building that would accommodate district representatives, officials and members of the development council for the first time, is expected to be constructed in seven months (October 2018 – March 2019).
The ceremony was held on yesterday, October 11, in Kakata, Margibi County. The Mosecom Construction Company is to begin the construction work next week.
The amount of US$27,800 and L$1,020,000, which constitute 55 percent of the project cost, was donated to the County District #2 Development Council.
The remaining 45 percent will be solicited through fundraising and Legislative Project Fund. But Representative Ivar Kokulo Jones of the district said the money is in fulfillment of his promise to contribute 50 percent from his personal allowances and salary as a member of the 54th Legislature.
Jones also congratulated Margibians for reposing in him their confidence by his election, and assured them of his determination to realize his four pillars of success. They include human capacity, resilient healthcare, agriculture, and reconciliation.
“I want to reassure you of my legislative duty to perform, including representation, oversight and lawmaking. And l am also happy to fulfill my promise to contribute to the project,” Rep. Jones said.
The chairman on the House’s Committee on Peace, Religious and National Reconciliation, Representative Dorwohn Gleekia of Nimba County District #6, pledged L$20,000 on behalf of House Speaker Bhofal Chambers.
Gleekia and Representative Thomas Goshua of Grand Bassa County District #5 each pledged L$10,000.
Margibi County Development Superintendent, David F. Suakollie, and Unification City Mayor Samuel Berrian, were among those that also pledged their support to the project. They hailed Representative Jones for the self-initiative.
The leadership of the Margibi County District #2 Development Council, which is headed by Joseph T. Charlie and Madam Yeto C. Harmon as co-chair, promised to support the project.
Mother Catherine Karloh and many other persons at the ceremony expressed gratitude to Representative Jones for initiating the Dolo Town Health Center road project.
