MONROOVIA, LIBERIA – President George Weah says Government’s quest of ensuring streets and communities in the country are electrified remains paramount.

Speaking at the commissioning of the Special Presidential Street Light in Bushrod Island over the weekend, President Weah said: “The lights will enhance the safety and security of the citizens at night”.
