Sinoe County Representative J. Nagbe Sloh is appealing to President Weah to appoint another competent Liberian to the National Elections Commission as Chair, rather than a naturalized citizen.

Appearing on Truth FM Wednesday, March 25, in Paynesville, outside Monrovia Representative Sloh vowed to find personally reach the President to appeal to him to withdraw the nomination.

He disclosed that some members of the House of Representatives are already planning a communication for the Senate to not confirm Cllr. A. Ndubusi Nwabudike, a Nigerian-born Liberian as head of the NEC.

The CDC lawmaker stated that in his mind, most of those Senators that are going for election will surely support the communication, emphasizing that this issue about a Nationalized Liberian to head the NEC should not be taken for joke.
Representative J. Nagbe Sloh of Sinoe County has alarmed over the appointment of Cllr. A. Ndubusi Nwabudike, a naturalized Nigerian -Liberian as Chairman of the National Election Commission (NEC).

The CDC lawmaker stated that the NEC, an institution responsible to conduct elections in the country, is very much troubling for a Naturalized Liberian to held such position.

He argued that it would be very much unfair for a foreign national or naturalized citizen to spearhead elections for the Liberian people.

President George Manneh Weah appointed Cllr. A. Ndubusi Nwabudike over the weekend to head the NEC along with a fresh team of commissioners, replacing Cllr. Jerome George Korkoya, whose tenure expired.

Prior to his latest preferment by the President, the nominee served as chair of the Governance Commission and lastly executive director for the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission.
