Dr. Yarkpawolo urges religious leaders to intercede for Liberia

By Lincoln G. Peters

Bong County District #4 Representative hopeful Dr. Emmanuel Urey Yarkpawolo has admonished religious leaders in Liberia to continue to pray for the nation as the country goes to election this October.

Dr. Urey Yarkpawolo’s appeal came over the weekend in Shankpallai Town, Zota District Bong County at the Lutheran Church, Upper Bong County.

Dr. Urey Yarkpawolo believes if Liberia will be developed, it requires the nation electing leaders who fear God.

He said this ranges from the Legislative branch of government to the Executive, the Judiciary, and local officials.

He said Liberia has all it takes for a nation to grow and feed its people, but wondered why it is lagging behind.

He disclosed that the country has over the time elected corrupt leaders and as such, all they do is what they can get.

He said leaders can only save for themselves and their generation to come, leaving the majority to go to bed with hunger and left with no jobs.

“Liberia has all what it takes for it to be able to feed its citizens and as well create job opportunities for its people, but we have elected corrupt people over the time and so we end up with [the] same government after another,” he said.

“Can you imagine young people in our country between the ages 18-40 years don’t have savings accounts because [of] no job,” he said.

Dr. Urey Yarkpawolo said the people don’t have monthly incomes, no fallback position. 

“Is that how we [are] supposed to be living?” he asked.

He wants Liberians to desist from receiving handouts from politicians, but to checkmate those going to them to contest for various offices.

The representative hopeful said in order to get people of like-minds at the level of the House of Representatives, the Grassroots Alternative Movement has begun the process of what he called “The Change Maker Network.”

He said the network is intended to bring like-minds together for the development of Liberia, adding that they will be rallying to transform the House of Representatives by transforming its members to see the country above self.
