Sanniquellie, Nimba Liberia: – One month ago, Sanniquellie was a scene of joy as asphalt pavement reached the historic city credited for the creation of what is today the African Union.

ArcelorMittal-Liberia (AML), one of the world’s largest mining and steel manufacturing firms globally has committed USD$45 million to pave the road that links Ganta to Yekepa.

The project is being implemented by the government of Liberia through CSE, a construction firm.

As many citizens continue to praise AML for her generous donation to the people of Liberia, Sanniquellie City, Mayor Maima Y. Kamara has added her voice to the wave of commendations.

She praised ArcelorMittal-Liberia and the Government of Liberia for the project and said it was wonderful milestone achievement for the Weah administration to have the project reach her city.

In a brief chat with Nimba D-9 TV reporter- Mellish Gbor, the major said, the road pavement means a lot not just to the people of Sanniquellie but the towns and villages that surround the city.

According to her, businesses, healthcare provision and education will be enhanced greatly when the road is completed and that “it will benefit us a lot because the road is also connected to the borders with Ivory Coast and Guinea”. 

The Sanniquellie major also explained how streets are getting paved across the city, through the help of ArcelorMittal-Liberia and the President of Liberia.

‘’With the road construction business people are no longer having major problems while bringing their goods in the market like they did before

Said Major Kamara: “they and their goods will not stay longer hours on the highway just between Ganta-Sanniquellie that is now less than 35mins”.

She believes this will boost economic activities in Sanniquellie and Nimba as a whole, the fact that Sanniquellie is the political capital of Nimba.

“The people Nimba county are grateful to ArcelorMittal-Liberia for committing USD$40 million outside of its operational budget for the pavement of Ganta to Yekepa” she said.

‘’I also want to thank President George Weah for implementing the project through Ministry of Public Work. We all know how ArcelorMittal-Liberia has been very much instrumental to the development of the County”

In conclusion the mayor is requesting AML to aid the Sanniquellie City Corporation with a truck for garbage disposal and keeping the city clean as the road has beautified Sanniquellie in unexpected ways.
