The Superintendent of Lofa County, George Dunor, said under his watch the county leadership and its people have incorporated three new townships and a city.

Superintendent Dunor said the creation of additional townships and a city was in line with compelling demand to increase political and economic participation in the eight districts of the county.

The new townships are Quadu-Boni, Barkedu, Zolowo; while Salayea in Zorzor District has been created a city by an act of the Legislature.  Commenting on development challenges in the county, Superintendent Dunor said the social development fund of US$200,000 was very minute in relation to the increasing needs of the people.

“The US$200,000 is very meager to cater to the needs of all the institutions, including the hospitals, clinics, schools and the local governance structures in the county,” Superintendent Dunor said.

According to him, US$900,000 allotted to the Lofa County Community College was a “disservice” to the institution that is striving to build the human resource capacity of the young people in the county.

“Though capacity is a critical challenge not only county alone, the money given to the college is far less. It is absolutely nothing when it comes to supporting academic activities,” he lamented.

The Lofa County Superintendent added that the need to encourage investments and industries to enhance the county social development fund could not be over emphasized. He was quick to respond to allegation of scraping the old Black Stone power generation given the county in 1986, saying that neither had he seen nor touched the machine had been claimed.

“I have never seen that generator. I have only seen the house because people normally point at when I am passing. I have never gone there.” Commenting on the recent count sitting where it was also alleged that US$65,000 was misapplied, Superintendent Dunor dismissed the accusation. He said that no one person was allowed to withdraw the fund. 

He used the occasion to thank President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf anf the Lofa County Legislative Caucus for the level of cooperation in ensuring that that the people of Lofa County were part of sweeping development activities going on across the country.
