Suakoko Commissioner Wants LMA to Build Markets
SOURCE: CONTRIBUTOR









The Commissioner of Suakoko District in Bong  County, Daniel A. Dodo, is urging the Liberia Marketing Association  (LMA) to purchase land across the country to construct market  buildings for marketers.
Dodo said this will help reduce the burden of rent that the LMA has  over the years encountered as a result of using private land in the  various counties.
Speaking to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) on Tuesday, Dodo noted that  it is important for the LMA to begin constructing market buildings on  its own land, as structures that will be erected will benefit the  current and future generations.
He said NGOs and the Government of Liberia, as well as other  organizations wishing to provide support to the LMA, will be  encouraged to build concrete structures for the association on its own  land.
The Suakoko Commissioner's statement comes in the wake of the recent  acquisition of six acres of land by the LMA for the relocation of the  Suakoko Market to a more ideal site that will bring relief to  marketers and drivers in that part of Bong County.
The six acres of land was acquired through a memorandum of  understanding reached by the LMA and a family, who both signed an  agreement for the purchase of the land estimated at US$9,000 to  construct the new Suakoko Market facility.
At the signing ceremony held at the Administrative Building in Gbarnga  City, Bong County, Mr. Abraham Thomas represented the Thomas family,  while the Vice President Abraham Bashue, represented the Liberia  Marketing Association.
