Monrovia – The Ministry of Finance and Development Planning has not remitted social development funds paid by ArcelorMittal to Grand Bassa County for over three years, thereby stalling the implementations of several development projects in the county, FrontPageAfrica has gathered. Grand Bassa gets $1 million; Bong County US$500,000 and Nimba gets the lion share of US$1.5 million. The group monitors the county social development funds as well as governance and management of the county resources. “The Government cannot take the people of Grand Bassa County money and hold onto it and think everything is well. So the government is under obligation to even provide the county development funds to the people of Grand Bassa,” he said during an interview with FPA.
