In June 1990 the Mount Coffee Hydropower Plant was rendered ineffective by rebel forces of the National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL).
In a letter to President Sirleaf, Pro Temp Armah Zolu Jallah described the turning on of the hydro as an event that will engender a major boost in economic activities in the intended 18 communities and the country as a whole.
"Launching of the 22 megawatt turbines will provide encouragement to business people to step up their purchase of products knowing which will be preserved for a longer time by the use of electricity and families will remain up for a longer time merry-making, especially during this festive season," the Gbarpolu County Senator said.
Senator Jallah who chairs county's Legislative Caucus als said the switching on of the 22 megawatt turbines marks another historical achievements for the Ellen led administration in Liberia.
It can be recalled that Pro Temp Jallah few months ago was guest to the head of delegation of the European Union (EU), Ambassador Tiina Intelmann, and her team to Gbarpolu County.
The tour by the EU delegation took them to four areas in Gbarpolu which have the potential to provide county-wide electricity through hydro plants; while at the same time Ambassador Intelmann expressed possibilities for the construction of the project based on the natural environment of the area.
In another development, Senator Jallah has made a donation of US$1,000 or L$100, 000 to the Female Journalists Association of Liberia (FeJA) in fulfillment of a pledge he made during programs marking the unveiling of the architectural designs of the association's building project.
