Monrovia, Sept. 23 (LINA) – Ahead of the December 8 Mid-term Senatorial Election, Grand Kru County Assistant Superintendent for Development is urging Liberian youths to denounce electoral violence and embrace peace for the forward movement of the country.
According to Mr. Joe Sekpeh, peace is critical to the growth and development of the country, noting that in the absence of peace, development will be illusive.
He indicated that with over 15 years of peace in this post-conflict country,
Liberians, especially young people, should not revert to violence.
Sekpeh is also admonishing Liberians to use dialogue in solving problems emanating from the upcoming electoral process.
Mr. Sekpeh made the assertion on September 22 in an interview on Voice of Grand Kru Radio via telephone.
The Grand Kru Assistant Superintendent called on the youths to engage in positive ventures that are geared towards buttressing government’s initiatives at community level, stressing that young people should not allow themselves to be used by politicians to instigate violence.
« The County Administration has disclosed that a tangible plan is underway by the central government to construct a modern youth center in Grand Kru. The project estimated at over US$75,000 is intended to dignify young people,” Sekpeh said.
He boasted of the milestone achievements of the CDC-led Government in the county, including infrastructure development, youth empowerment, fight against the Coronavirus as well as construction and rehabilitation of roads.
He praised the good working relationship existing between citizens and development partners in Grand Kru County.
