Dr. Togba-Nah Tipoteh, presidential aspirant of the Liberian People's Party (LPP) has donated an amount of L$10,000 to asssist in the construction of a school in Dayokpo, Sasstown City in Grand Kru County.

This donation was made over the weekend at a grand program held by the Dayokpo Juniors Association at the Elder Mwa Torbor compound, Borough of New Kru Town, a LPP release said.

Members of the Association, especially the women, beautifully dressed in Grand Kru fashion, came out in their hundreds to give support to the improvement of the lives of children in Grand Kru through education.

An amount of L$40,000 was raised. It can be recalled that since the Liberian civil crisis, Dr. Tipoteh has been supportive of the construction and rehabilitation of educational facilities in various parts of the country.

Recently, the "only man on the ground", as Dr. Tipoteh is popularly called, donated generously for the construction and rehabilitation of school facilities in Virginia, Montserrado County and Ganta, Nimba County.

For his numerous contributions to education and peace in Liberia, the Dayokpo Juniors Association conferred upon Dr. Tipoteh the high honor of Paramount Chief of Jloh Chiefdom, Grand Kru County.

Other personalities honored for their service to humanity were Senator Beatrice Nimene Sherman, Dr. Peter Coleman, Dr. Nathaniel Bartee, Dr. Evelyn Kandakai, Mr. Kofa Nagbe and Mr. Blamo Nelson.

In his role as guest speaker, Mr. Senyon Kieh, Editor-in-Chief of the Monrovia Chronicle Newspaper, called upon organizations to honor only those who are actually working for the upliftment of the Liberian people rather than honor dishonorable people because they have plenty money and power through guns.
