A member of the National Legislature, specifically from the House of Representatives has threatened the Executive headed by President George Weah with a lawsuit for its failure to over US$6.8 million intended for the County Social Development Funds within a month.

Nimba County District #5 Rep. Samuel Kogar, in a letter to the Plenary of the House on Tuesday, June 30, said since 2017, the government has failed to pay Nimba County’s share of the Social Development Fund (SDF) paid by Arcelor Mittal in the tune of US$6.8 million.

In addition, he said the Government has refused to disburse the County Development Fund (CDF) in the tune of US$800,000 appropriated in the national budget.

The situation, he said is undermining the implementation of several development projects in the county. Source: Source: FPA
