Jonathan Boye Charles Sogbie, the Senator of River Gee County, has expressed deep concern about the sudden disappearance of National Transit Authority (NTA) buses that were designated for public transportation in Monrovia.
During the regular session of the Senate, Sogbie emphasized that the NTA has the responsibility to provide affordable transport services to the citizens of Liberia.
Sogbie reminded the Senate that the government of India had generously donated 45 brand new buses to Liberia in order to alleviate the high transportation costs. However, he informed the Senate that these buses have mysteriously vanished from the main streets of the capital city, with no updates from the National Transit Authority regarding their whereabouts.
Recognizing the inconvenience caused to the struggling citizens due to the unavailability of these buses, Senator Sogbie urged the leadership of the Liberian Senate to investigate this matter in the best interest of the public.
Echoing Sogbie’s concerns, Abraham Darius Dillon, the Senator of Montserrado County, deemed the issue as serious and recommended that it be referred to the Senate Committee on Transport for further investigation and subsequent action.
Consequently, the matter has been referred to the Senate Committee on Transport, which will deliver a report to the plenary on the following Thursday.
