Cllr. Tiawan Saye Gongloe led an array of policy makers in his motherland in Quiopa Wolota Clan, Bong County Electoral District #1 to find a solution to the numerous deaths by drowning of residents in the town along the St. John River connecting Nimba County District #9.  The visitation was also geared toward acquiring a ferry at the crossing point.

“I will purchase the ferry you people need to mitigate the drowning you are experiencing. I think this is an opportunity for me to pay back Cllr. Tiawan Saye Gongloe for helping me in the establishment of my business,” Representative Bility said.

Cllr. Gongloe was very instrumental in the business I have today because he did my article of incorporation free of charge’’ Bility said.

Representative Bility, however, pledged 100 pieces of solar lights for the people of Quoipa and asked them to fairly distribute the lights to the needed positions void of politics in imitating the fair practice of Cllr. Tiawan Saye Gongloe.

He maintained that Bong County, as his mother home, played a pivotal role in his educational sojourn therefore, and noted that it is time that he gave back to them for standing with him in everything during his journey to reach the height he is.

‘’You love me, I love you. If I am not mistaken, I was the first to bring the superintendent here … when you are friendly with people, you bring them to your people. That’s why today I bring Musa here to rescue my people,” he intoned

He said, “I want to assure the people of Quoipa and its environs of my commitment in providing opportunities for you.”

For his part, Dr. Emmanuel K. Urey Yarkpawolo, the acting Executive Director of the Environmental Protection Agency thanked representative Bility for paying back what Cllr. Gongloe did for him some 30 years back, and urged the people of Quoipa to develop good characters and be a help to somebody today that would be a help to them in the future.

Dr. Yarkpawolo further explained about the importance of the ferry project that will benefit people of Quoipa and its environs, asserting how grateful he is to President Joseph Boakai for trusting him to work in the Unity Party led government.

He then assured the people of doing his best in the discharge of his duties, while making a cash donation of twenty thousand (20,000) Liberian Dollars to the people of Quoipa.
