Grand Kru County Representative to the National Legislature, Gbelamah Slopadoe said in order to successfully achieve the goal of the “Back to the Soil” program initiated by government, a lot of fund is needed to get its goal realized.
Speaking over the weekend at the launch of “back to the soil” campaign in Monrovia, Representative Slopadoe noted that once money is not infused into the process, it would be impossible for Liberians to feed themselves.
He said the printing of placards and billboards in Monrovia will not make the country to achieve its intended goal.
The Grand Kru County Lawmaker stressed that he is preparing to send a bill to his colleagues that will help government lobby for funding for the promotion of the back to the soil agricultural program.
He however called on Liberians to go beyond the printing of billboards and placards, but should explore avenues that will help boost the moral of the program.
Also addressing the occasion, the head of the Traditional Council of Liberia, Chief Zanzan Karwah said, one must observed the farming season before engaging into the process or else there will be a wasted effort.
The Chief Karwah used the occasion to honor to gown former Lone Star player, Kelvin Sebwe and urging him to return home and invest in the soil of Liberia, because according to him, the Liberian soil is very rich for investment.
In response, Mr. Sebwe expressed thanks and appreciation to Chief Zanzan Karwah and his corps of officers for bestowing upon him such a honor.
The “back to the soil “campaign is been organized by the government of Liberia in collaboration with the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).email@example.com
