Margibi County Superintendent John Z. Buway has for the first time responded publicly to repeated claim of disunity within the county’s leadership by Representative Ben A. Fofana, terming it as untrue.
Representative Fofana of Margibi District Four had repeatedly claimed members of the county Legislative Caucus and the entire leadership were not working together, something he noted, was impeding development in Margibi.
He said due to the lack of unity, they were not working in the interest of the citizens, pointing accusing fingers directly at Superintendent Buway as being one of those responsible for the disunity in the county.
But speaking recently to reporters in Kakata, Margibi County, Mr. Buway said Rep. Fofana is lying and that he (Supt. Buway) has in his possession documents that prove the lawmaker has always attended leadership meetings with his colleagues during which they discussed issues affecting the county with unity and common understanding.
Superintendent Buway disclosed that many times they meet at restaurants and other places where they eat and joke together. According to him, there had been no disagreement as a county leadership and they don’t have to be brothers and sisters before working in government.
He said if Rep. Fofana’s definition of unity is when he ran to Gbarnga, Bong County to contest for the Treasurer post of the governing Unity Party during the UP’s recent convention and expected the entire county to have supported him, then he is wrong.
Superintendent Buway continued that the fact he did not support Representative Fofana’s dream should not be misconstrued as disunity among the leadership of the county, emphasizing that they all don’t belong to the same political party and therefore don’t have to agree on everything.
According to Superintendent Buway, as far as he is concerned, they were elected or appointed to do a piece of work for the people of Margibi and they are doing it together as a team.
