Our correspondant in conversation with many joyous residents of River Cess received several praises from the people for the donation which was given many classifications. While some prominent sons and daughters of the county termed the donation of the Ferry as a stsitch in time which indeed, saves nine, some rate it as when Heaven’s door opens unto the people of River Cess, whereas others pride it as a cardinal signal that there is a great farsighted-and-people-centered statesman who sincerely, honestly and convincingly believes and accepts that Liberians will and must be fully part and parcel of the emerging wave of growth and development with the operational credo of leaving no body and counties behind anymore in the forward march national achievements.

The veteran civil servant also made it clear that promises made an not                    kept are as dangerously useless as forcing sifter to store water and commended Dr. Boakai for keeping and making real of his promise which clearly an openly shows that a man’s word is the value of his worth and life of which people can always count on, that his yes is yes, and his no means no, adding that, this man is the real and actual talk and do man, and no doubt about it.


As former Vice President, Joseph Nyuma Boakai makes vividly practical his promise as reflective of his donation of one Ferry to the people of Rivercess County, to be operated on the Cestos River, at the Yarnee Statutory District crossing point, the whole place came to a complete standstill with deep-seated joy, admiration and warm and tender appreciation as onlookers became overwhelmed with the sight of release and great hope.

This brings to five the number of Ferries donated to Riverside communities in Bong and Nimba Counties which are currently operating at the Hindii, Piata and Peigi crossing points on the St. Paul River and on the Yah River in Nimba at the Tengbin crossing point.
