MONROVIA-The strong political godfather of Nimba County, Senator Prince Y. Johnson is said to be experiencing a serious challenges in convincing the people of Nimba for his third-term reelection bid.

Senator Johnson was first elected Senator during the 2005 general and presidential elections  as  a result  of  informing  the people  of Nimba  that  he liberated  them from  the hands  of fallen  president Samuel K. Doe.

During the midterm senatorial election in 2014 Senator  Johnson reminded  the people  of Nimba  on his role played during  the 14 years civil conflict;, according  to him, he defended  them against  the late Liberian President Samuel  Doe’s security forces , an information  that inspired  the citizens of Nimba County  to  reelect  him  senator  for the second time.

With Senator Johnson nine years in the senatorial position gradually inching to an end, the provocative political godfather of Nimba is not taking  his reelection bid in  the upcoming general and presidential elections  for play.

Recently,  in Nimba County , Senator Johnson again  called  the attention  of the   people of Nimba County  not  to forget  his role played  during  the 14 years civil war   in defending  them .

He told the citizens that as an appreciation for his role, they should grant him the third term by reelecting him as senator during the 2023 general and presidential elections.

Senator Johnson also told his kinsmen not to vote for their kinsman Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe who is vying for the presidency.

According to Senator Johnson, the rejection of Cllr. Gongloe  not  to  gain  the overall mandate  from  the citizens  is based  on his constant called  for  the establishment   of war crime court in Liberia  to prosecute  those who committed crimes against humanity .

Senator Johnson said, Cllr. Gongloe is not showing appreciation for his role in protecting the people of Nimba with that, they should punish Cllr. Gongloe by not electing him during the general and presidential elections.

With such assertion on the part of Senator Prince .Y. Johnson, several citizens of Nimba County have strongly criticized him for boasting of killing peaceful citizens in the name of liberation.

The Citizens in a telephone conversation on Truth FM Radio Thursday, urged Senator Johnson to desist from such attitude and to become to show remorse for his action against the people of Nimba and that of the country.

The Citizens further indicated that with Senator Jonson boasting of war and he should be  rewarded  for additional nine years job, such mentality has  the propensity to encourage  young people  to engage   into such    act  with  the believe that they will be  rewarded  with top elected position.

The Citizens welcomed the called for the establishment of war and Economic Crime Court in Liberia.

Additionally, Nimba County District #8 Representative Larry Younquoi wants the United States Government’s Sanction on Senator Prince Johnson to prevent him from contesting the 2023 senatorial elections during the general and presidential elections.

Speaking some time ago when the United States Government slapped  sanction on Senator Prince Johnson, Representative  Younquoi said  there  is a need  for  them,  as policy decision makers of the county   to inform  the  citizenry  about  the negative effects  it will have  on the county’s developmental progress,  if they reelect Senator Johnson  who  is being placed on sanction by the United State Government.

The Alternative National Congress lawmaker  said,  it will be a serious setback  for  the county   if   the citizens reelect  Senator Johnson, mostly with the country’s  international partners  including  the United States of America.

Representative Younquoi further said Senator Johnson has misused the opportunity   and respect from the people of Nimba with the return of insults.
