PYJ’s hometown endorse Weah 

By Thomas Domah/ Nimba County

Citizens of Buuo Yao, electoral district#5, home of Senator Prince Yormie Johnson, joined huge number of Nimbaians on Saturday, 4th February at the ruling Coalition’s One Million Citizens’ Rally held in Sanniquellie, to endorse President George Weah for second term.

Speaking in Sanniqullie, Nimba County over the weekend, Zoe-Geh district statutory superintendent Rev. Zephaniah D. Gban, said the decision of the people of  Buu Yao to support the re-election of President Weah is based on current roads construction in various parts of the district.

According to Rev. Gbah, citizens of the district had suffered for very long from frequent car accidents due to lack of paved roads.

He said the CDC-government has brought great relief to the suffering citizens by connecting the district with roads.

The Zoe-Geh statutory superintendent made the statement in Sanniqullie after he along with other citizens travelled from the district to Sanniquellie to form part of the endorsement of President Weah’s 2nd term bid.

Superintendent Gbah disclosed that the people of Buu Yao recently met and agreed unanimously for the re-election of President Weah, noting that they would not be ungrateful to the President whose administration has brought relief to them.

The decision by the Buu Yao people to support Weah’s re-election is a stab in the back for Senator Prince Y. Johnson, who recently withdrew support from the President for allged failure to fulfill campaign promises to the people of Nimba.

PYJ has been calling on Nimbaians not to support President Weah’s re-election on grounds that the people of Nimba voted for the CDC-government, but they have not benefited employment as was promised.

According to the Nimba senator, whose Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction (MDR) party overwhelmingly campaigned for Mr. Weah in Nimba during the 2017 election, the Weah administration has brought untold sufferings to Liberians, rather than impacting their lives, coupled with insecurity that has led to mysterious deaths across the country.

The endorsement ceremony in Sanniquellie was attended by thousands of Nimbaians, including ex-generals, who told reporters that they will not allow themselves to be fooled by any individual, who only seeks support for himself other than the county.

Ex-general Peter G. Paye, Representatives Joseph Nyan Sonwaybi of electoral district#3, Prince Tokpah of district# 2 and Johnson Gwaikolo of district#9, respectively joined the crowd in pledging support to President Weah to allow him to continue his development programs across the country.

According to them, Liberians are currently benefiting from various ongoing road construction works, including peace and unity.

Receiving the endorsement in Nimba, CDC Secretary General Jefferson Koijee thanked Nimbaians for always standing in support of President Weah.

Koijee then urged the people of Nimba to continue supporting the Weah administration, as the government will continue to support the county. Editing by Jonathan Browne
