A ground breaking ceremony for the construction of an intellectual center value more the US$3,000 has been held in Barclyville, Grand Kru County, southeast Liberia.
Under the banner Grand Kru County Intellectual Forum or “Ageewulu” in the local vernacular, it will be the first forum since the formation of the county in 1984.
Media consultant Mr. James Myking Suah, says in the local dialect, Ageewulu means "Come Let’s Talk", adding that it is intended to promote economic, social, political, sports, education, security and developmental issues concerning Grand Kru, Liberia and the world at large.
Mr. Suah continues that the forum invites relevant actors to discuss or explain their scope of operations in the county and to also speak on variety of issues. He says if completed, the center will have the capacity to host over 150 persons and will contain three offices, situated in Barclayville, Wapleken community.

Mr. Suah lauds Grand Kru County Superintendent Elizabeth Dempster and others that have identified with the forum financially.
Superintendent Dempster pledges her fullest support to ensure that the forum is erected up to standard.
“I am grateful that young people in my county today are thinking on holding discussions that will promote peace and development to move the county forward” she notes. Editing by Jonathan Browne
