Deputy Information Minister for Administration Andrew Tehmeh has constructed three wooden bridges in Sanoyea District, Bong County to help ease the movement of citizens.
The bridges, which connect several towns and villages along the St. Paul River, will also ease transportation of goods and services within the district. Speaking during an inspection of the projects, Tehmeh said the initiative is a way of assisting his people who are finding it difficult to move about as they have to trek several hours before finding motorcycles to take them to their various destinations. According to him, being a son of Sanoyea, he feels obliged to intervene in the lives of the citizens whose livelihood is primarily tied around farming that requires road connectivity to carry their produce to the market. Tehmeh said villagers in the remote parts of Sanoyea face serious difficulties and their sufferings need to come to an end, pledging his continuous support to citizens’ initiatives in the district. Citizens gathered in Freeman’s Town to welcome Tehmeh with congratulatory messages, thanking him for the relief he has brought to them. They described him as “a true son” who has been very consistent in extending helping hand to them. They then call on other sons of the district to emulate Tehmeh’s initiative, which demonstrate a characteristic of a senior citizen.
