AVC, as he is commonly called, is one of the biggest real estate developers, who have constructed one of the country’s largest market districts on Bushrod Island, facilitating the development and growth of small and medium enterprises in Monrovia.
He was elected Representative of Montserrado County District Number 14, in the 2011 general and presidential elections and has since redirected much needed resources to providing humanitarian services to slum communities in Monrovia.
Besides providing much needed financial assistance and support to schools and learning institutions in Montserrado County, to keep students and teachers in schools, Representative Conneh has constructed a multi-purpose high school nearing completion on Bushrod Island.
Conneh told reporters that he has always cherished the promotion of peace through the rule of law and the attainment of quality education for young people living in difficult situation in densely populated slums in the suburbs of Monrovia.
Bushrod Island is largely concentrated with poor rural migrants from the 16 sub-political division of the country, who lacked basic social services including better school system and is more prone to crime.
