The heat is on in Nimba in finding a replacement for Vice President Jeremiah Koung, who left the Liberian Senate last year following his election in November 2023 on the rescue ticket of President Boakai. Nimba District#5 Representative Samuel G. Kogar, who has declared his intention for the senate, is receiving huge endorsement from his kinsmen to represent them at the county level.

Nimba County, Liberia, March 19, 2024—Nimba County District#5 Representative and senatorial hopeful Samuel G. Kogar has received huge endorsements from the youth, women, and elders of Lesonnon Chiefdom to contest for the senate in the pending senatorial by-election slated for April.

The citizens describe Representative Kogar as one of the leaders who has brought pride to Nimbaians and the entire country in terms of representation in the House, among other things.

The pending senatorial by-election is intended to fill a seat in the Liberian Senate, created by the election of ex-Senator Jeremiah Kpan Koung as Vice President of the Republic on the ticket of the now-ruling Unity Party of President Joseph Nyuma Boakai. Former Senator Thomas Grupee has also joined the race for the senate in Nimba.

Speaking to reporters over the weekend, following a huge endorsement ceremony in chiefdom, Mr. Cyrus Konah, who chaired the petition process, said their decision is based on the level of good representations Kogar has done for Nimba that they can boast of.

Mr. Konah described the lawmaker as a leader without borders, noting that he would generally do his best for Nimbaians and Liberians if elected to the Senate.

He recounted that Representative Kogar has fulfilled several promises and continues to develop his district by implementing campaign promises and providing three Kia Motor trucks to all three chiefdoms that make up the district.

He said Kogar provided two million Liberian dollars to the district’s education sector and women’s organization in fulfillment of a promise made during the 2017 election.

He also noted that Representative Kogar has personally implemented a series of developments in his district, including, but not limited to, the construction of a police station in Buutuo, the first time since the Liberia National Police assigned Police officers there, nurse quarters, a guest house alongside Glarlay Town Hall, and N’ yor Diaplay Youth Center in Diaplay town.

He also mentioned the construction of Ganyeinglay Town Hall in Ganyeinglay Town, the lighting of 58 towns that make up electoral District# 5 at the cost of US$46,000, the installation of a ferry at Buutuo crossing point, the Tuazama Intellectual Center in Bahn City, and financial aid to students from the county in various Universities and colleges across Liberia, among other things.

Mr. Konah said history records the senatorial hopeful as the longest-serving representative for the people of Nimba since the county was created in 1964.

Responding, Representative Samuel Kogar accepted the endorsement from the citizens including motorcyclists and promised to impact their lives positively, if elected to the senate.

According to him, his leadership will promote unity and peace among Nimbaians, taking development to 19 administrative districts of the county. Editing by Jonathan Browne
