MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Liberian Government is appealing to Health workers to abandon their plan go-slow action over the ongoing salary harmonization process.

Deputy Information Minister Eugene Fargon said:” Government is opened to dialogue and urging you to seek the path of constructive engagement.”

Minister Fargon noted that protest or go-slow is not the way forward in seeking redress to their grievances.

He told the MICAT press conference Thursday that Government remains committed to improving public servant workers.

Reports say the Health workers have decided to stage a go-slow action beginning Friday, September 20, this year.

In another development, Deputy Information Minister for Public Affairs Eugene Fargon says government has no plan to abandon the State Broadcaster.

Minister Fargon’s statement comes in the wake of media reports that the Government has backed the establishment of a Radio Station for the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).

The Deputy Information described the report as shocking and one intended to spread falsehood about the Government.
Meanwhile, the Liberian Government has warned radio stations airing obscene messages on their platform to desist.

Deputy Information Minister Fargon also said that the Indian Government has renewed its commitment and support to the Bali Island project.

Minister Fargon said:” The Indian Government remains firm to providing both loan and grant for the Project.”

He told the MICAT press conference in Monrovia that the Bali Island project will soon begin.

He also disclosed that the crown Hill bridge project will shortly commerce.

Minister Eugene then said the concession agreement that is expected to be signed between the government and Buchanan LLC will create over 100 jobs for Liberians.
