BENTOL, LIBERIA-The Liberia Land Authority (LLA) is calling on government to make land ownership rights, a priority issue for majority of grass root Liberians.

The LLA Vice Chairman, J. Adams Manobah, said: “The success of the government’s Pro-Poor policy must reflect as direct guarantee in meeting the rights of the people to own their own land”.

Atty Manobah told ELBC Tuesday, March 13, 2018 in Bentol, City, Montserrado County, where the Liberia Land Authority launched awareness activities to acquaint the public of  the LLA’s mandate functions and roles, being a one stop center to settling land disputes among other related issues.

Also speaking, the Chief of Party of USAID/ Land Governance Support Project in Liberia, Dr. Yohannes Gebremedhin, said: “Land issues involve players of divergence interest and views whose activities sometimes include Criminal Conveyance with impunity”.

Dr. Gebremedhin said most of these are a lasting global issue that attracts public and governments’ attention, cutting across countries and Liberia is of no exception.

The outreach program of the LLA to the people is being sponsored by the United Nations Development Project (UNDP) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and expects to take place in many parts of the country, including Harper City, Maryland and Sanquellie City, Nimba County.
