Rep Kafia Denies Disunity Among Bong Leaders

By Ballah Kollie. LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, May 31 (LINA) – Representative Edward Kafiah of Bong County has described insinuations by some citizens that leaders of the county are divided as “totally untrue.”

He said while there may be challenges in the leadership circle, the situation does not amount to the perception that county leaders are at each others’ throats.

Addressing citizens at the end of a two-day all Bong Citizens conference Friday at the Dolokelen Gboveh High School in Gbarnga, the lawmaker noted that the county leaders have maintained “cordial exchange of information among themselves,” stressing, “There is not a day that each of us will not speak to the other.”

Representative Kafia has, meanwhile, admonished citizens to refrain from tearing one another apart, which, he noted, is retarding development and progress in the county.

At the same time, the president of Bong Advocacy for New Direction, Mr. Francis O. Nyeekpee, has stressed the need for citizens to put the county above their individual political interests and champion the development of the county.

Despite low turnout at the conference, Nyeekpee expressed satisfaction, noting that the conference “was successful because we came from the US to speak to our people and those who came to our call are those who had interest in our initiative.”

 He promised to ensure that the conference will be held annually.

Participants at the conference, among other things, resolved that leaders of the county ensure the timely payment of both health workers and teachers, that a neutral body heads the Madam Suakoko Scholarship fund void of lawmakers’ involvement.

The conference held under the theme: “Promoting Unity and Development in Bong”, was poorly attended.
