Prices of Commodities Skyrocket in Greenville

first_imgAs the roads of Liberia’s Southeast’s continue to worsen, prices of essential commodities have sky rocketed beyond the reach of ordinary citizens and residents of Greenville City in Sinoe County.In addition, several feeder roads leading to the various districts are inaccessible due to the fact that most of the farm-to-market roads have not been rehabilitated nor are there any plans in the offing to fix them.   Sadly, prices of most essential commodities have soared so much that the lives of ordinary citizens and residents in the port city of Greenville could be described as grave and worrisome.Amongst many of the essential commodities whose prices have hit the roof are sardines, plastic dishes, rice, palm (imported), drinks and locally produced foodstuffs.Consequently, according to businessmen and women operating stores and shops in Greenville City, prices of essential commodities have dramatically escalated owing to hike in transportation fares from Monrovia and other parts of the country.Transportation fares from the commercial district of Red-light Market in Paynesville to Greenville City in Sinoe County have been stepped up LD$8,000.00 for a to and fro trip.Previously, a round trip from Monrovia to Greenville was LD$6000.00 per commuter with the exception one’s personal effects.Businesswomen and men taking goods, services and things told the Daily Observer last week in Greenville City that due to the hike in transport fares, their entities are not doing well economically in Sinoe County.The nation’s staple food rice a 25-pounds of bag is now been sold for LD$1,700.00, bottle of stout LD$175.00, canned of sardine LDS115.00, bottle of large beer LD$210.00, finger size batteries LD$40.00 and all frozen food commodities have climbed the hiking ladder at the port city of Greenville in Sinoe County.In separate interviews with both residents and businesspeople last week, they expressed grave concern over the escalating price increases in Greenville City and other parts of that county.Businessman Francis Tugbeh Doe said that until urgent steps are taken to rehabilitate the most life threatening deplorable spots on the Sinoe-River Cess highways, the situation will continue to deteriorate rapidly on commodities’ prices in Greenville City.“I think the Liberian Government needs to re-examine, evaluate and monitor the construction works being carried out on the between River Cess and Sinoe Counties in terms of durability and sustainability,” Mr. Doe stressed.Businessman George Browne Nimely told the Daily Observer that the Rainy Season by all engineering standards is not best time to work on unpaved roads in the country.“We want to reduce the prices of essential commodities but, the transportation fares are retarding the undertaken of such a realistic venture in Greenville City,” businessman Nimely asserted.For her part, businesswoman Betty Sumo Wesseh stressed the need for the complete reconstruction of the Sinoe-River Cess in order to save the citizens and residents of Greenville City.Madam Wesseh added that they were really catching hard times on the highways of Sinoe and River Cess counties owing to the deplorable conditions of dangerous spots and life threatening potholes.“I want the Liberian Government to bring pressure to bear on the road construction company that currently responsible for the rehabilitation of the River Cess-Sinoe Highway in Greenville and other areas in Sinoe County, Madam Wesseh concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
