Former World football star and Liberian president George Oppong has started a new housing project in his country, Liberia.

President weah has put measures in place to build brick houses for citizens living in rural areas to replace their mud houses as promised in his manifesto.

The 1995 FIFA World Player of the Year, George Oppong Weah shared photos on his facebook wall yesterday, Sunday 3rd March, 2019.

Mr Weah noted that this is to prevent the mud houses of the rural dwellers from being demolished and to also transform their standard of living.

He wrote: “I’m excited to announce that my vision to transform the standard of living of our rural dwellers, precisely by upgrading their homes from mud brick homes to concrete homes; has started with the Sasstown development project.

In an effort to avoid demolition of their existing homes; which will prevent them from being homeless during the construction period, we have devised a strategy wherein we will build the new homes at a different location; and once the construction is done, they can then move into the newly constructed homes while we demolish the old ones and encourage them to do agriculture at the site of their old homes.”
