By Moses Sonkarlay

(mylbsonline/Liberia)-President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf will Thursday April 25, 2013 participate in ceremony marking the electrification of Greenville, the provincial capital city of Sinoe County.

The project, undertaken by the County authorities, is in line with the Liberian Government’s development initiative to provide electricity for Greenville and its environs.

Liberia’s Minister of Information, Culture Affairs and Tourism, Lewis Browne, told a news conference Thursday April 25, 2013 in Monrovia that the President will turn on the power in the city.

Minister Browne said: “I am sick and tired of threatening statements against the government and people of Liberia.”

He urged Liberians to help solidify peace in the country and reiterated government’s pledge to uphold freedom of speech.

“The Liberian Leader has already dedicated several other projects in the area. The projects include the Sanguine Bridge, linking Sinoe and Maryland Counties, and a clinic in Greenville,” the Liberian Information Minister also said.

Though Minister Browne did not state the actual costs of the 2-way concrete bridge, he said: “prior to its rehabilitation, the Sanguine Bridge served as single lane log bridge.

The President, on the same day, visited the Judicial Square, Greenville Port, and Golden Veroleum in Butaw.

The Liberian Leader is also expected to discuss with officials of Golden Veroleum and citizens of Sinoe County to amicably resolve some contentious issues between the two sides.

Butaw is a traditional town in Sinoe County, located in the South Eastern Region of Liberia.

The County Superintendent, Milton Teahjay, will later Thursday night tender a dinner in honor of President Johnson-Sirleaf and delegation.

Speaking earlier to mylbsonline, Presidential Press Secretary, Jerolinmik Piah, said: “The President was satisfied with the level of transformation taking place in Sinoe County.”
