Former chairperson of the Liberia Anti Corruption Commission (LACC), Cllr. Frances Johnson Morris-Allison, has promised to liberate the people of Bomi County from lack of development if elected, using her experience and expertise to serve the people of Bomi in the senate.
Cllr. Johnson Morris-Allison, who is vying for the Bomi County senatorial seat, said the county needs a change of leadership engendered by the election of its brightest daughter (Cllr. Johnson Morris-Allison) to develop Bomi and champion the welfare of the youths, women and men, who are aggrieved in various concession areas.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with The NewDawn, last week at the paper’s offices on Crown Hill, Broad Street in Monrovia, Cllr. Morris-Allison said she decided to go into party politics because she believes that the governance of Liberia needs best skills and talents; the best qualities and best characters that are available, saying, “I think I have something to contribute to the governance of my county.”
“The people of Bomi can be assured that when elected, I will not compromise their interests or that of the Liberian people by taking ‘brown envelopes.” She outlined seven pillars of her campaign, with transparency and accountability at the top, followed by education, youth unemployment, women empowerment, restoring the dignity of the county’s traditions and protecting the rights of Bomi workers.
She described herself as the best among all of the candidates in Bomi that will provide good leadership in the County. “I’m saying to the people of Bomi that they should give me the chance because I represent the best alternative for them in terms of good leadership; I’m the best option and I’m telling them to put their trust in me because I am their rescuer,” she noted.
Cllr. Morris-Allison was once a justice advocate, National Director for the Catholic Justice for Peace Commission (JPC); Chief Justice during the Transitional era and Justice Minister as well as Chairperson of the National Elections Commission (NEC), Commerce Minister and Executive Director for the Liberia Anti- Corruption Commission (LACC).
There are ten candidates aspiring for the senatorial seat in Bomi County—three females and seven males. Senator Lahai Lassanna, who currently occupies the position, is seeking re-election.
