With just few months to jump start the campaign ahead of the 2017 Presidential and Legislative elections, the call for an indigenous Liberian presidency appears to be on the rise.
Many Liberians believe that Liberia under an indigenous leader would witness growth and development rather than what has been achieved under the Americo-Liberian regimes.
One senior public official to join this debate is Nimba County District Two Representative Prince O.S. Topka.
Rep. Topka told our Nimba County Correspondent recently, that Liberia has been governed by Americo-Liberians for too long with nothing tangible to show developmental-wise. He said an indigenous Liberian is able to transform the country from its current state by improving the economy and livelihood of the people.
According to the Nimba Lawmaker, slain President Samuel Kanyon Doe was one native Liberia President, who developmentally left a tremendous imprint on the Country.
