(mylbsonline.com/Liberia)-President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf says the rotational hosting of Liberia’s Independence Day celebration is meant to instill a sense of development in all Liberians.

Liberia gained her independence on July 26, 1822. This is why such a national day is annually celebrated in the various counties on a rotational basis, especially since the inception of the Johnson-Sirleaf administration.

“This decision is meant to instill a sense of development in all Liberians,” The President said.

The Liberian Leader said: “The rotational hosting of the occasion is also intended to encourage all Liberians get collectively and individually involved in development programs, but not necessarily to transform a county into a modern city in a short period of time.

President Johnson-Sirleaf made the statement over the week-end at Bo Water-Side in Grand Cape Mount County.

She spoke at the end of a one-day inspection tour of the 2013 Independence Day development projects in Bomi and Grand Cape Mount Counties.

“I am satisfied with the level of development brought to the counties as a result of the rotational celebration,” the Liberian Leader added.

The Liberian President lauded the Bomi County Legislative Caucus and the county authorities for their efforts in creating more structures in the county to host people who would be attending the event.

During her one-day inspection tour of Grand Cape Mount and Bomi Counties, President Johnson-Sirleaf inspected several development projects, including bridges, clinics, children play grounds, and the newly constructed Sirleaf Market Projects in Gbah, Bomi County.
