One of the prominent indigenes of Honeyahun District, Honorable Joseph H. Farkollie, praised Mr. Boakia’s role in the Ellen administration, especially for the many projects undertaken in the county.
He described Hon. Boakai as the “most experienced, seasoned senior grand uncle” that every well-meaning citizen should support.
Mr. Farkollie made the call at a dedicatory program in Honeyahun, Koluhun District. The program was graced with some prominent citizens of the county including the commissioner.
In January, the government of Liberia in partnership with the Global Partnership for Education dedicated three educational institutes in the county. The institutes would benefit the districts of Districts Luyeama, Zorzor, Honeyahun, Kolahun and Ngrokuma and Foya.
According to Joseph Farkollie, the initiatives were undertaken by the Ministry of Education from a grant that was provided by the Global Partnership for Education in order to make education accessible to the vulnerable and poor in remote areas within the 15 counties.
He revealed, under the arrangement, the Ministry of Education is expected to construct 19 basic educational schools, 13 classrooms, primary schools with six early childhood centers and three class rooms for primary school.
He disclosed that the cost of each of the two schools is estimated at US$640,000.00. He noted that the Honeyahun Community in Lofa County and its surrounding villages has an estimated population of over 3,500 inhabitants and 800 are school-going children.
