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.
