At least 92 elders in Electoral District #2 in Nimba County Saturday May 14, 2016 converged at the Tubman Hall in Sanniquellie City to beg Representative Prince Olusagon Saye Tokpah not take Senator Prince Yormie Johnson to court for alleged deformation of character.
The elders said taking Sen. Johnson to court will tint the good image and character of( he) Tokpah and Nimba at large. The elders pardoned came as a result of a mass meeting called by Rep. Tokpah to complain Senator Johnson about his allegation that Rep. Tokpah is corrupting the people of Gboa Clan and also single handedly handling the Bhpbilliton US $ 120,000 social development fund intended for Nimba on Radio Nimba a week ago.
‘’This allegation spark up a political commotion between Senator Johnson and Representative Tokpah in the media thus leaving the lawmaker to opt for a legal action against Nimba Senator Johnson. Rep. Tokpah told the elders that his future character has been assassinated by Senator Johnson and with their advised Senator Johnson needs to publically retract this in the media.
Tokpah who is keen to contest for the second term maintained that Senator Johnson statement is a mere fallacy and fabrication intended to block his political ambition and such citizens should disregard his comments.
Responding to Rep. Tokpah’s complains, the elders thanked him for involving them to iron the political saga and stressed to work with Nimba County Superintendent Fong Z. Zuaglay for senator Johnson to extend an open apology to Rep. Tokpah.
The elders also described Nimba issues which are being discussed in media by its lawmakers as an unfortunate situation for the county. By Allen P. Lablah, Sanniquellie
