SANNIQUELLIE-Vote-rich Nimba County has added her voice to the many voices in giving the Liberian Leader, President George M. Weah, a green light to contest the Presidential and Legislative Election for the second time.
The residents in their endorsement statement mentioned that their preference for Weah’s Candidacy stemmed from the unprecedented wave of developments seething through Nimba County.
The event took place simultaneously with the One Million Rally Endorsement of President Weah which occurred on February 4, 2023.
The colorful event was graced by high-profile dignitaries including Officials of the County.
Addressing the gathering in Sanniqullie, Nimba County, former County Chairperson of the CDC, Reginald Mehn Mehn noted that the CDC-Led Administration has been involved with massive road construction throughout Nimba County.
She was joined by several Nimbaians including ex-General Peter G.Paye, District two Representative, Prince O.S. Tokpah, Representative Joseph Nyan Sonwaybi of District number three, and Representative Johnson Gwaikolo and former County Inspector Thompson Q.Suah.
Despite claims in some quarters that more Sons and Daughters are not serving in government, these Officials applauded the Liberian Leader for appointing more Nimbaians in Government, even though they are not in very top positions.
According to them, they have gathered to join other Liberians across the Country who had gathered in Monrovia to support the re-election of President George Weah’s government.
For his part, Ex-General, Peter G.Paye, pledged his unflinching support to the reelection bid of the Liberian Leader.
He heaped praises on the Liberian Leader for maintaining the country’s cherished peace and the construction of roads in the county.
Also speaking, Nimba County Lawmaker, honorable Johnson Gwaikolo of District number nine informed the gathering that the decision to support the reelection bid of President Weah will witness massive development in the county.
For his part, Nimba district two Representative, Prince Tokpah, and Representative Joseph Nyan Sonwaybi also praised the government for the level of development currently ongoing in Nimba and the rest of the Country.
Receiving the endorsement from Nimbians, CDC’s Secretary General, and Monrovia City Mayor, Jefferson Koijee thanked Nimbaians for always being supportive of the CDC government.
He disclosed that as Nimbaians continue to support the re-election of President George Weah, citizens of the County will continue to benefit from more developmental activities from the government.
Meanwhile, the ruling party Secretary General urged Nimbaians not to allow themselves to be fooled by an individual who only seeks benefits for himself rather than the county.
He explained that some only seek support from the government to benefit themselves and their families rather than helping the county in general.
He made the statement in Sanniqullie, Nimba County when he received endorsement from Nimbaians who gathered to pledge support for the re-election of President George M. Weah.
But some citizens said they were only there to show numbers and were not honest with the leadership of President Weah.
“We from Nimba are not stupid. They only want our votes but not positions. Let them go to the people from the South East. Time will tell. They will be shocked,” Richard Meanway, a citizen of Sanniqullie who resides in Monrovia said.
