NIMBA COUNTY-The Government of Liberia has assured the people of Nimba County of its commitment to pave the road linking Ganta to Sanniquellie.

The assurance was contained in remarks made by President Sirleaf during brief interactions with some residents of Nimba County, along the road when she inspected the Ganta to Sanniquellie highway.

President Sirleaf said:” The Liberian Government’s intervention is due to Arcelor Metal’s failure to live up to its commitment of undertaking the project.”

She however said:” The project will cause homes to be destroyed, as government is not in the position to compensate you, so you must sacrifice. “

The President tour of  Nimba County Sunday, February 19, 2017 was graced by Senior Senator Thomas Grupee and newly appointed Superintended Dorr Cooper.

The residents then praised the Liberian Government for the many developments in Nimba County, and welcomed the pending road project, but begged government to provide some compensation for the destruction of their homes.

President Sirleaf was in Nimba as part of the second and final leg of her nationwide tour, after visiting Western Liberia recently.

While in Nimba, the President toured several towns and villages and held town hall meetings with the people of Nimba County.
