FRTUL New Leadership Embarks on Modern Terminal Project in Ganta

first_imgThe newly inducted leadership of the Federation of Road Transport Union of Liberia (FRTUL) Nimba Branch, headed by the Lawrence W. Queeglay, Sr., has embarked on the construction of a “modern” terminal in the commercial city of Ganta, Nimba County to boost to the transport sector.In an exclusive interview with Daily Observer in Ganta on July 2, 2015, Mr. Queeglay said the modern parking terminal, when completed will be the first facility to bring all the parking across Ganta to a centrally located area.He said when the modern parking terminal is constructed; the several parking stations across Ganta will be consolidated, saving passengers from running all over in search of a vehicle to get to their respective destinations.“Already, we have begun filling the swamp behind this terminal to create more space for the construction of the parking terminal that will host all the parking terminals in Ganta,” Mr. Queeglay said.Mr. Queeglay and his corps of officers were elected on May 31, this year for the period of four years. They took over from Mr. Jerry Luogon, who has been in office for almost a decade.Many persons had complained of the role of the FRTUL in terms of development with huge money being collected from drivers annually, but lack accountability to authenticate the impact of the said money.But, Mr. Queeglay promised to be more accountable, while executing the duty of the office of the president of FRTUL (Nimba) with dedication and commitment to carry on tangible development to the expectation of the public.

‘We did it for Vichai’: Schmeichel proud of Leicester tribute

first_imgWith Vichai’s funeral underway on Saturday in Bangkok, Leicester headed to Cardiff for a match that served as a chance to honour him and begin the healing process.It was fitting Leicester took the points in their first match since Vichai’s death thanks to Demarai Gray’s second-half winner.Leicester goalkeeper Schmeichel has felt the tragedy more than most as one of the only players to witness the immediate aftermath of the crash moments after the helicopter went down.And the Denmark international was in tears as Leicester’s players and staff locked arms in the centre circle during a poignant minute’s silence before kick-off.“I feel proud. It’s been a really tough week for everyone. The way everyone at the club handles themselves is a testament to the family Vichai built,” Schmeichel said.“You come across very few people that impact you. He had a really big impact on my life.“You can see from the reaction that he had an impact on so many lives. I’m immensely proud to have known him.“I can’t imagine what his family are going through, we did it for him and his family.”The majority of Leicester’s players, manager Claude Puel and senior staff were due to fly to Thailand immediately after the Cardiff match to join what is likely to be a week-long funeral for Vichai.Schmeichel admitted he was relieved Leicester were able to mark the sombre occasion in the only way they could — by playing at their best in memory of Vichai.“That took a lot. It has been an emotional day and glad we got three points for him,” he said.“Every single player wanted to get out there to be at the funeral.“We are glad we’ve come away today from a really tough game with a win we can bring to Thailand and hope we did the family proud.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Leicester’s Kasper Schmeichel applauds fans after his side’s emotional win at Cardiff © AFP / Oli SCARFFCARDIFF, United Kingdom, Nov 3 – Kasper Schmeichel dedicated Leicester’s emotional 1-0 win at Cardiff to the club’s late owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and his grieving family.Thai billionaire Vichai was among five people killed when his helicopter crashed outside Leicester’s King Power Stadium following last Saturday’s match against West Ham.last_img read more
