Grand Bassa County Electoral District #5 Representative Robertson Siaway has disclosed that he is strongly preparing to contest in next year’s Presidential and Representative elections come 2017. “No politicians will want to make room for another politician. I am prepared to contest for 2017 elections,” he said.
Representative Siaway indicated that his desire to participate in the 2017 elections came as a result of an appeal from his people, saying his participation and success will also help to continue whatever development project(s) currently being undertaken and not completed in the district.
He told this paper in an interview last weekend at his office on Capitol Hill that a leader should be a person always willing to listen to those he leads, adding that if such leadership style continues to exist in every electoral district across Liberia, the country will make tremendous progress.
The electoral District # 5 Lawmaker of Grand Bassa County confirmed that as a result of the rainy season, most of the roads to his district were actually in deplorable conditions, preventing farmers from bringing their produce to Buchanan and Monrovia for sale to help solve some of their domestic problems.
He described the situation as very saddening. Representative Siaway also urged the people of District # 5 in Grand Bassa County to unite, as well as respect those who serve as their local leaders in the area, noting that in so doing, it would help move the district forward.
“The Electoral District # 5 which I (Siaway) represent is actually suffering from bad roads that are stopping farmers from bringing their goods for marketing,” he said.
