MONROVIA, LIBERIA-President George Weah has promised residents of the Old-Road Community, particularly marketers that they would soon buy and sell goods and services in a new state-of-the-art market structure.

The President said the new market would be completed in 31 days.

Old Road Community will be one of several communities to benefit from the President’s promise to build modern market facilities in the Country.

Duport Road Community is one of few communities that has already benefited from market buildings President Weah has promised to construct.

Swarmed by dozens of jubilant marketers and other residents, President Weah said the designed market structure is already available, and that construction works will soon get underway.

The Liberian Head of State made the disclosure Monday, June 17, 2019, when he toured the deplorable Old-Road Community market built several years ago.

The Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE) is expected to oversee construction of the new Old Road market building.

Following the tour, President Weah drove into the populous slum community of West Point, where he assessed the erosion situation threatening thousands of residents and business people.

Over the years, substantial portion of West Point Township’s landscape has been lost to sea erosion, leaving hundreds of residents displaced and homes completely destroyed.

President Weah’s Government has been making efforts to save communities rocked by sea erosion under its “Coastal Defense Projects”.

One of the costal defense initiatives has virtually salvaged some of the Country’s biggest academic and medical referral facilities, D. Tweh High School and Redemption Hospital, from extinction.
