PROMINENT CITIZEN LAMENTS ILLICIT MINING IN RIVER GEE, CALLS FOR INVESTIGATION

Date:

LIBERIA – The Former Publicity Committee Chairman of the River Gee County 2016 National Independence Day Program, Jacob N.B. Parley, is calling on the River Gee Legislative Caucus to investigate increasing reports of illicit mining in parts of the county.

The prominent River Gee citizen said such reports are worrisome and therefore require urgent investigation by the County’s Legislative Caucus and other well-meaning citizens of the county.

Mr. Parley said illicit mining has never done any good in terms of improving the living conditions of River Gee citizens, especially the youth, who are said to be heavily attracted to such activities because of hardship.

According to Mr. Parley, the reported act will only deepen the hardship River Gee citizens are going through rather than give them a sustainable future through workable and achievable programs.

He said it is frustrating to see aliens and their likes drain the energy of the county’s youthful populations out of them under the shelter of helping them win daily bread, while such people allegedly remit huge sums of monies accrued from these activities into their countries.

The veteran Liberian journalist said besides aliens and others using little or nothing to pull the county’s youthful populations into illicit mining, such practice has the propensity to keep potential future leaders of River Gee out of school and eventually leave them with a bleak future.

Mr. Parley also called on the River Gee Legislative Caucus and other stakeholders of the county to put in place workable strategies that will make the youth productive masters of their own professional destinies rather than potential future beggars and conduits of violence.

According to the veteran Liberian journalist, any society that fails to lay a productive foundation for its people, mainly the youth, the such environment may intelligently be training a generation of clever devils.

He also called on the youth of River Gee to reject being used to spending their lives raising huge sums of monies for aliens and their collaborators, who, in return pay them with nothing meaningful, but tobacco and other handouts.

Mr. Parley said his comments come in the wake of increasing reports of illicit mining in several parts of River Gee, as well as the hardship River Gee citizens are going through owing to a lack of sustainable programs, etc.
