Pro Temp Findley Outlines Plans to Assist Farmers
(Monrovia, Monday May 21, 2012)-The President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate and Senior Senator of Grand Bassa County Gbehzohngar Findley has revealed that plans are currently underway to assist thousands of farmers in Grand Bassa County through an empowerment initiative.
Senator Findley who has already made available 1.4 million Liberian dollars for markets in Bassasaid farmers are the next target to benefit from similar assistance.
Pro-Temp Findley spoke over the weekend in Gorblee, Compound Number three, GrandBassa County when he was handed a certificate of honor by the Gorblee Youth for Development for his ascendency to the position of Pro-Temp and his numerous contributions to the youth community, the County and Liberia.
Responding to the honor, Senator Findley challenged youths of Grand Bassa to actively participate in the development of their county saying, “The growth and development of Grand Bassa County squarely depends on you”.
Pro-Temp Findley said despite the many criticisms from his detractors, he will continue to help the Bassa people and protect the interest of citizens. “I challenge any Bassa individual on this continent who will claim that he has done more for the people of Grand Bassa County than Gbehzohngar”, Senator Findley asserted.
However, the Grand Bassa Senior Senator said the solution to the huge problems in the county rests on the citizens themselves. He urged them to work together for the general good of the county. “We all have to work together to bring growth and development to our county and to also bring relief to our people” Pro-temp Findley averred.
On the students’ outcry for latrine facility at the only government high school in Gorblee, Senator Findley promised to immediately deal with the issue by sending the Development Superintendent to conduct an assessment and look at the possibility of constructing a latrine to ease the plight of the students. On the other hand, Pro-Temp Findley vowed to engage the contractor to understand why the school was built without a latrine, a situation that has compelled students to use the nearby bushes to attend nature.
Meanwhile Senator Findley has pledged his commitment to work along with the citizens to construct a radio station and a modern sports stadium in Gorblee for people of the District.
The honoring program was climaxed by a soccer match between 3rd division outfit Young Superstars and the Old-timers of Compound three, a match that ended 3-2 in favor of the old-timers. Before the match commenced, Pro-Temp Findley took a powerful kick-off reminiscent of an ex-soccer professional.
