A resident of Margibi County District#5 is calling on authorities of the district, including its current lawmaker, government and Liberians in general to practice open reconciliation rather than doing so under the cover of darkness.
Speaking to reporters recently in Weala, Margibi County, Samuel Togba says, “We all should come together and work, but for me, my issue on reconciliation is I don’t want to do reconciliation under the cover of darkness, let it be broad, let us come out and say it”, he stresses.
According to him, people did similar reconciliation in the past in the district, but they had hidden agenda. He calls for town hall meetings to bring together all of the parties involved so that they can express their grievances and forge ahead with life and forget about the past.
Mr. Togba continues that such responsibility to unite the people of electoral district#5 rests on the shoulders of their Representative Clarence G. Gahr. The district was previously headed by former Speaker James Emmanuel Nuquay.
He announces plan to meet with the lawmaker to tell him about the importance of reconciliation in the district. Besides Samuel, other citizens are making similar call on the need to unite the district to move ahead with development, as in other parts of Margibi and the rest of Liberia.
