MONROVIA, LIBERIA-President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is calling on Liberians to take charge of developmental initiatives in the country, noting only will Liberia be developed. President Sirleaf said Liberia has come a long way in meeting its developmental targets despite challenges in achieving such initiatives. The Liberian leader made the comment Friday, December 15, 2017, when she dedicated the Free Port internal roads and modernization project and the second phase of the APM terminal project. According to President Sirleaf said: “The facilities will add a lot more to the Country’s infrastructure and help government keep promises made in the past years.’ She lauded APM Terminals and CONEX for their swift interventions in face-lifting the port of Monrovia, contributing immensely to Liberia’s economy. President Sirleaf maintained that the Port has improved over time since the intervention of APM Terminals, helping the management serve the Nation better. Speaking also at the program, the National Port Authority (NPA) Managing Director, David Williams, said the dedication of the facilities at the Port is a demonstration of commitment to infrastructure developments. Mr. Williams said the completion of the internal roads will enhance the operations of the port, as it serves as a gate way to the country’s economy. According to him, the project fully financed by the NPA is aimed at improving traffic flow and gender safety for the port users. Mr. Williams said:” Under my administration, the port has move from 12 hours to 24 hours operation, and that the port is better today than it used to be, and other ports across the Country have also been improved.” Mr. Williams was also remarking at the dedication of the internal road project at the Free Port Friday. The NPA Managing Director noted that the improvement of the port will reduce the cost of making business with the Free port of Monrovia.
