GBAPOLU COUNTY-President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said resolving Liberia’s difficult Economic situation does not require   quick fix approaches.

President Sirleaf said:” Reviving the economy is not as simple as pushing a button, but a process that requires collaboration, and when Liberians farm and engage in entrepreneurship to help themselves, they are indirectly contributing to improving the economy.”

President Sirleaf also pledged government’s commitment to improving the condition of the Suehn-Bopolu major road and the completion of other projects in the county before the end of her tenure.

She was speaking Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at a town-hall meeting with the people in Madina in Gbarpolu County.

Gbarpolu County citizens, including local authorities, thanked President Sirleaf for the level of development, peace and international recognition the country has attained under her administration.

The President Protempore of the Liberian Senate, Armah Jallah, earlier called on Liberians to embrace the concept of continuity in leadership, adding that no single government can address all of the needs of the country.

He praised the Unity Party - led government for the enormous accomplishments over the past eleven years, especially for the decentralization program and said Gbarpolu County is grateful to have a county service center.
