Plenary’s decision was triggered by a communication from Montserrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon, expressing disappointment in the Company for lack of requisite credentials, capacity and ability to handle such a contract.

Senator Dillon informed Plenary in his Communication that the quality of work being done on the long corridor of the road from ELWA to RIA is poor and has become more like a “death trap” to commuters plying said route.
