Maryland Students Laud Lawmakers

By Pinket A. Scott (intern)

The Pleebo Sodoken University Student Union (PLSUSU) has lauded the Maryland Legislative Caucus for what it terms as the significant role being played in the fight against this remorseless, vicious, and antagonistic Ebola virus.

The student group also lauded the county lawmakers for their great donations made to the Task Force in Maryland County.

Speaking at a recent news conference in Monrovia, the Public Relations Officer of Pleebo Sodoken University Student Union, Mr. Daniel S. Sargbe lauded the World Health Organization, World Bank, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), African Union (AU) and the European Union (EU) for its continuous support to the Liberian Government to enhance efforts in combating the deadly Ebola virus that is claiming the lives of many inhabitants of the country.

The PLSUSU Public Relations Officer then called on citizens of Maryland County, especially Pleebo Sodoken District to do away with politics in the fight against the Ebola virus and work together to contain this situation in the county.

Also speaking, the President of PLSUSU, Mr. Christopher Kyne recommended that the Ebola response mechanisms must be effective by providing ambulances, call centers and Ebola treatment Units in the county.

Mr. Kyne further stated that there is a need that the Government of Liberia sends medical supplies to Maryland County to enable the citizens receive treatment as healthcare delivery is very essential to the survival of the citizens. He said it is painful and worrisome that there are no drugs in the entire county, something he described as being very heinous and nefarious.

According to Mr. Kyne, there should be well structured community base organizations, including religious groups and intellectual centers to carry out Ebola awareness in which the majority of the citizens must be involved in the county.

Mr. Kyne added that the Liberia National Police (LNP), the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), and other paramilitary groups deployed to enforce regulation must display reasonableness, good conduct, flexibility, without intimidations and harassment of ordinary citizens.
