Makeni, Sierra Leone, Monday, December 31, 2018: The General Manager of TRANSCO CLSG, Mr. Mohammed M. Sherif along with his team today visited several construction sites in Makeni, the largest city in the Northern Province of Sierra Leone, as part of his CLSG project sites tour in the four beneficiary countries.
In the areas visited, the EPC contractor, KALPATARU has erected several transmission towers along the Lot #4 corridor from Bikongor to Yiben, while more tower foundations are being built.
During the tour, the General Manager met with scores of native Sierra Leoneans who have been hired by the Contractors to implement the CLSG project. As he enumerated the vast benefits that come with the CLSG interconnection project, Mr. Sherif challenged the workers to take ownership of the project for its successful implementation.
The General Manager added: “Ownership means you care about the success of the project. You’re not just coming to work every day and collect paychecks at the end of the month, but I want you to take responsibility and attach value in the quality of work you do.”
Mr. Sherif continued that taking ownership is not just doing a job, or working on a project, it means making it your assignment to see it through. I want this project succeed. So, take it as your project and we all will succeed. Once you own it, we will succeed and when we succeed, your villages will succeed. This is just the beginning…”
The General Manager said the CLSG project will benefit villages along the transmission line that is being constructed across from Cote d’Ivoire to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. “I am happy to see you all. Even though TRANSCO CLSG is the owner of the transmission line, it is you who are the owners of the line. You need to know that this line will be passing through your communities and it will benefit your communities economically and socially, etc.”
The General Manager used the occasion to thank the EPC contractors for keeping the CLSG project implementation on track.
