Several citizens of Bong County Electoral District#1 have petitioned incumbent Representative Tokpa Mulbah to seek a third term in office. In a palava hut rally over the weekend, they said Representative Mulbah has proven that he has interest in developing the district, so he deserves re-election in October.
The citizens in their petition outlined construction of clinics, feeder roads and provision of job opportunities as some achievements of the Lawmaker. They also mentioned provision of scholarship for less fortunate students enrolled in high schools and tertiary institutions.
According to them, Rep. Mulbah is the choice of the District and he will be re-elected to continue his developmental agenda. The District#1 petitioners promised to organize themselves to ensure that Representative Mulbah is voted for the third time for ably representing them at the National Legislature.
Responding to the petition, Representative Mulbah said he was grateful to God for allowing his people to recognize his undertakings in the district despite many challenges.He said his developmental quest for his people could not be overemphasized, owing to his commitment in 2005 when he joined politics to relieve the people of abject poverty.
The former Deputy Speaker of the 52nd National Legislature, who accepted the petition, then vowed to always ensure the completion of unfinished projects when given a third term mandate.
The program was attended by Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy and her deputy Anthony Sheriff, Representatives Samuel Kokia of Nimba District #5, Corpu Barclay and Prince Moye of Bong County Districts #2 and #7, respectively, House Speaker Emmanuel Nuquaye and Senator Jim Tonorla of Margibi County.
