MONROVIA-The By-Election within Bomi County is now taking serious political trend.
Bomi County Senator Edwin Snow whose election to the Liberian Senate created the by-election is taking issues with Montserrado County Senator Darlus Dillon for the later attacking his colleague Senator Snow.
This has not been accepted by Senator Snow. The election is expected for November 16, 2021.
Senator Edwin Snow is supporting an Independent candidate Finda Alice Gborie –Lansana(wife of former Senator, Gbaba Lansanah) and Senator Dillon is supporting the CPP’s Candidate Charles S. Brown .
Recently, Senator Dillon and Grand Bassa County Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence, during a campaign event of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) candidate in the Bomi County District #1 Representative By-election in Married Camp , senator Dillon alleged that if the voters vote for Senator Snow’s Candidate within the by-election, they will be putting money in his pocket.
He further indicated that voting for Senator Snow’s candidate will also mean that she and Snow will lobby for President George Weah against the citizens of Bomi County.
“I was uncomfortable meeting with you in Married Camp because I was out of internet connection in a concession area, I am not use to it “he noted.
Senator Dillon told the residents that they are living challenging lives without internet connectivity committing themselves to take the people of Bomi County lack of internet to the plenary of the Liberian Senate.
He further indicated that if they vote for senator Snow’s Candidate, she will listen to him to sit with president Weah at his Jamaica Resort – an assertion that did not go down well with senator snow, prompting him to take on both the social media and the airwave to reject such allegation.
In Senator Snow’s reaction, he vowed to expose Senator Dillon of his hidden deeds over the years. He did not elaborate.
“Talking about perfection, I know Dillon worked with me as a chief of staff , I know that the distance between Dillon and perfection is the same distance between heaven and hell , you come on the air and act as if you go on the air and act like a perfect person , to denigrate your colleagues, you know what I know, so I will ask him to desist , go and campaign for your candidate and stop attacking other people,” senator Snow indicated.
According to him, for too long the Montserrado County senator Dillon has gone untouched of attacking other people.
“This is the same Dillon who wanted to become senator just the other day and we all are friends and as my former staff, I found out to give him a helping hand and we were out there helping him and out of certain, Dillon has arrived ; he is the biggest guy in town just going all-over the place and insulting” he indicated.
The Bomi County lawmaker further disclosed that the Senator’s Assertion that the people do not have internet was a deception, stressing that those in rural Montserrado County do not have internet facilities.
“When he and his political leader go on their safari, he should stop attacking other people,” he said.
According to Senator Snow, Senator Dillon needs to be careful with his friends who know about him.
