A primary school in West Point

During a press tour of the beachside community of West Point in Monrovia to purposely assess the standard of education there based on tips, we found this privately operated elementary primary school. The proprietors told us they have been appealing to the Ministry of Education for assistance and/or subsidies, but the Ministry has not done anything to help bring the school to an acceptable standard.

E.J. Roye Building

This is a partial view of the E.J. Roye Building. The building is a former headquarters of the True Whig Party and a symbol of one-party and dynastic rule of True Whig Party in Liberia has been in ruins for decades on Ashmun and Lynch Streets in the heart of Monrovia. Several citizens have been murmuring, and others do confront authorities of TWP and government to do something about this building, as it poses danger to people who use this route.
