GREENVILLE, Feb. 8 (LINA) – To buttress central government’s support to the educational sector, Sinoe County District #One Representative, Crayton Oldman Duncan, has officially turned over three 72-seater buses to the student community of Sinoe County through the office of the county school system in Greenville.
In his remarks on Friday, February 5, during the turning over of the buses, Representative Duncan said the donation was in keeping with promises he made during the 2017 General and Presidential Elections.
He explained that the delay in bringing the buses to Sinoe County was due to the deplorable condition of the road leading to the Southeast, noting that the buses were brought into the country about two years ago.
Duncan said for so long students have been finding it difficult to get to their respective campuses because some parents find it difficult to provide even lunch for their school-going children, especially the little ones.
« I think in my own mind as a lawmaker and as a son of this county that it’s time to give back to our people. I am willing and prepared to maintain and even pay those who will be driving the buses in order to help our children and county at large, » Duncan pointed out.
The lawmaker said he was elected in 2017 and succeeded former Representative and National Security Advisor to the Head of State Jefferson S. Karmoh.
The buses donated are among other development initiatives of the lawmaker since his election in 2017.
Recently, the lawmaker dedicated over 17 infrastructural development projects, ranging from youth centers, community markets, constructed and renovated schools, as well the construction of bridges and a modern community radio station in the district of Butaw.
During the turning over of the buses, Representative Duncan said his office remains committed to the people of Sinoe, adding that when it is time for politics he will disclose his next intention when necessary.
He noted that he is still conducting his survey and that the information in the public domain of his intension to contest for the Senatorial seat in 2023 never came directly from him, but it will “not be a bad thing if only the people call upon him to serve.”
Meanwhile, the Sinoe County District #One Representative has assured that he will implement more development projects as long as he is at the National Legislature.
In remarks, the County Education Officer Alphonso Kambo thanked the lawmaker for providing the buses, assuring that eyes will be on them to ensure that they are not used illegally.
Several citizens of the county who spoke to reporters expressed delight at the lawmaker’s initiatives.
