Travel To Southeast Is ‘Road To Hell’ – As Boakai’s 100 Days Countdown Elapses

By Our Staff |

Travel to the Southeast of Liberia is like travelling to Hell due to the very deplorable roads condition, as the countdown of President Joseph N. Boakai’s promised to the Liberian people as part of his ambitious 100-day plan that not a single vehicle will get stuck on any major road has hit 45 days.

Although specifics of the plan were not disclosed, Boakai’s focus comes as the country’s road network remains greatly underdeveloped – among the least developed in West Africa.

According to our reporter who is touring some parts of the southeast, travelers and vehicle operators are challenged from Tappita in Nimba County to Zwedru in Grand Gedeh County, even thou there are some bad spots when you leave Ganta.

The road is also worst in River Gee, especially before getting to the Euro Logging Company camp in John Davis town. According to our reporter due to the bad roads there are less vehicles plying the road compare to motorcyclists.

It is however, unclear whether Boakai’s quick-fix solution to the country’s road problems, which is somehow better in the dry season, would consider the rainy season while seardhingfor a long-term solution.

Our reporter who also visited Lofa County late last month observed that from Zorzor to Voinjama is very deplorable, and a big challenge for travelers and vehicle operators. Accordingly, if no intervention is made now before the raining season the above places will be impossible to travel.

“Liberians have been complaining and yearning for many things, and we will review some of the hardships, especially those areas essential to their livelihood,” the president said.

“We will make sure that everyone is on board to build our country”, he added. “We want to appreciate the Liberian public and the people of Liberia who protected those ballots that subsequently led to our election. The Unity Party (UP) and its alliance are prepared to bring prosperity and everything the people have been yearning for over the years”.

“Liberians have been complaining and yearning for many things, and we will review some of the hardships, especially those areas essential to their livelihood,” the president said.

The Liberian leader also expressed gratitude to Weah for graciously conceding defeat, saying, “We are all Liberians, and all we want is the peace of this country, and our move will be to reconcile the society”
