PAYNESVILLE – The first ever female chairperson of the GSA Road Community Association, Mary Mubah has said unity is the surest way of any community leadership making impactful development.
The female community leader said the transformation of the GSA Road community hinges on the leaders, especially the Elders Council for ensuring that unity, peace and reconciliation exist between past and present leaders of the community.
She appreciated the General Chairman of the GSA Road Community Association, Dave Fokonyulu for uniting the community, pointing his role in bridging the gap between past and present leaders of the community.
She made specific reference to Mr. Fokonyulu’s recognition of all former leaders with honor during the 19th anniversary celebration of the community leadership at the Nazareth Faith Holiness Temple Church.
The GSA Road community former female chairperson reaffirmed her support to the achievement of the community leadership developmental drive, especially the community hall that is currently under construction .
Also speaking Saturday during the celebration of the 19th Anniversary of the GSA Road Community Association was the Chief Administrator of LICOSESS College of Education, Benjamin Wehye, who used the occasion to call on community residents to depoliticize their leadership.
Mr. Wehye said de-politicization of community-related undertakings by community leaders will engender greater impact on the transformation of their various communities.
He said communities that have allowed their leadership to turn the community to political parties have the propensity to prevent manifold developmental programs.
The LICOSESS boss then extolled the GSA Road Community leadership for taking the path of de-politicization in the just-ended Montserrado County special senatorial elections, applauding the community leadership for such decision amid huge financial inducements by politicians during electoral processes.
He further attributed community empowerment to sacrifice and taking ownership of developmental initiatives.
For his part, GSA Road Community Association General Chairman Dave Fokonyulu, who said the leadership is committed to sustaining peace, unity and development, commanded his community dwellers for the level of support given to his leadership for the realization of a community hall that he said has reached 65 percent completion.
