Montserrado County Senator Geraldine Doe Sheriff has made available L$150,000 to women of the Nikon Clan, in the Daygbo Gbavia Chiefdom, Arthington, Montserrado County, as a way of providing small loans to aid their activities.
She challenged the women to identify a land spot for the construction of a modern market for them.
Senator Doe-Sheriff also added that farm to market roads are essential for the survival of the people in the interior part of Liberia and promised to engage Public Works Minister Gyude Moore to recondition the Arthington Road and other feeder roads in Montserrado County to bring relief to the people.
It may be recalled that the Senate of the 53rd Legislature in its early years passed an Act creating the Daygbo Gbavia Chiefdom.
Meanwhile, Senator Doe-Sheriff assured twenty two chiefs in the Chiefdom — who are said have been working without pay for more than three years — of her support to ensure that their names are placed on the government’s payroll.
According to a petition received two years ago by Senator Doe-Sheriff from Paramount Chief Mama Dukuly on behalf of the chiefs, they said officials have not made any effort to have their names on the government’s payroll.
At a mass meeting with the chiefs and elders held over the weekend in Nikon Clan in Arthington, the chiefs commended Senator Doe-Sheriff for her effort in the sponsorship of a bill establishing the Daygbo Gbavia Chief in Montserrado County, which was eventually passed into law.
Paramount Chief Mama Dukuly said the passage of the act creating the chiefdom can only be traced to the good work Senator Doe-Sheriff. They prayed for God’s blessings in her, describing her as “a mother and a true humanitarian helping to save lives.”
Senator Doe-Sheriff promised to lobby with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and other high ranking members of the Legislature during the current budget deliberation period for chiefs to receive their just benefits.
She also distributed cash and chargeable torchlight to the chiefs and appealed to them to remain patient with a promise to look into their concerns.
