Great News! It is nice that the city of Monrovia is finally coming of age. This is long overdue since many African cities have been rapidly modernizing over the last 20 years. The city needs a general mall and entertainment complex with theaters, a convention center, hotels, restaurants, and many different types of stores and shops all in the one large walk through building complex. Those individuals and entities with the millions need to put resources together to build a mall complex. Leasing the space would bring in instant returns and profits to the developers. It would also create a one stop shopping and hang-out spot for relaxation and commercialization. I'm convinced that as soon as the hydro-electric power at Mount Coffee is restored, the construction boom will even expand much further. Can you imagine the possibilities for increased commercialization and job growth? But first, I must congratulate the government for creating a conducive environment for investment in infrastructure. This is one way of creating new low skilled manual jobs that are highly needed while at the same time modernizing and reducing urban poverty. With the city limits expanding along the ELWA/Robertsfield Highway, the government needs to hasten investment in widening the highway to a (4 to 8 lane express route) to the airport. If this is not done in time, it could cause major traffic jams from the suburbs into Monrovia. The route is relatively short so it would just require contracting the work to a well proven highway construction company to do a world class job. Fellow Liberians, we suffered a 14 year civil war that demoralized our pride. Now its time to rebuild our country and show that we can indeed catch up and compete with our West African neighbors.

I often watch the new face of my dear and only city, Monrovia through photos over the net. That makes me glad and proud to be a Liberian.
In fact as am talking, I have proudly set a photo of new University of Liberia as a background page on one of the computers in my school's computers room here in Nigeria. Friends often ask me "Where is this, is it Jerusalem?" Then I proudly respond, "This is the University of Liberia." Am grateful to the government of Liberia and good contributors for the nice job being done.
