A group of women, under the umbrella, National Council of Chiefs and Elders has commenced the harvesting of about four hectare of upland rice it planted during the current farming season.

The National Coordinator of the National Traditional Council of Chiefs and Elders, Madam Ceita Saah Fofanah, at the official ceremony in on the Ganta Highway outside Gbarnga, commended the women for the step taken to plant rice.

Madam Fofanah said the traditional council supports agriculture, especially rice farming considering the fact that rice is Liberia’s stable food.

She told the women not to just harvest this year and sit but they should continue to plant rice.

Madam Fofanah pledged the National Traditional Council of Chiefs and Elders’ support to the women.

She told them to keep standing up for the betterment of Liberia in terms of food production.

Two officials of the National Traditional Council of Chiefs and Elders women farming group, Madam Albanison Kromah and Madam Aletha Sackor Sheriff said the planting of the four hectare of rice was difficult due to the lack of support but said they are glad their effort has been materialized.

Madam Albanison Kromah and Madam Aletha Sackor explained that women of Bong County are very committed to helping government in creating a strong agricultural sector that will benefit all Liberians.
