The Supreme Court of Liberia has placed a stay-order on the road rehabilitation in Tappita, Nimba County, the Development Superintendent has revealed.

Dorr Cooper disclosed at the weekend the decision emulates from a complaints filed by concerned citizens. The county leadership made initial intervention when the issue was first raised, Cooper said, “but the citizens went straight to the Supreme Court.”
“The citizens were right because they were dissatisfied with the process. We asked the citizens and other residents alike to remain calm.” “We have pulled out of Tappita and right now I have the revised version of the prohibition from the Supreme Court. We respect the highest court in the land. But we think the injunction will affect other cities,” he said.
“This is unrealistic and will greatly affect the development needs of our people. Their resistance had led to the writ of prohibition to the development or rehabilitation of the roads in Tappita. The county wronged the people of Tappita.”
The road rehabilitation exercise in the county was influenced by the February 2015 County Council sitting. The sixth council sitting seriously highlighted road rehabilitation in the county.
Road equipment were taken to Tappita few weeks ago to begin a major rehabilitation exercise. The construction equipment that were being used have been moved to another road project, the road connecting the Doe Administrative District to Gbee-Doru, and Kwendin – parts of lower Nimba County that have been inaccessible.
The administration of Nimba County had encountered pockets of resistance from Bahn and the Zoe-Geh administrative Districts since the commencement of the city’s streets layout exercise in July this year.
Some residents are demanding compensation from the county administration before demolishing their properties, basing their argument on Article 24a (ii) of the Liberian Constitution which requires “prompt payment of just compensation” when citizens’ properties are repossessed.
