By Wellington G. Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent
SANNIQUELLIE, November 21 (LINA) - Nimba County Superintendent Fong Zuagele has urged citizens to follow the guidelines laid down by the National Elections Commission (NEC) for the conduct of the Special Senatorial Election.
Zuagele called on citizens of the county to refrain from violence during the election process, if the country’s shattered state is to be rebuilt.
He made the statement on Thursday at a press conference held at his Tubman Administration building office in Sanniquellie at the official launch of the senatorial campaign in the county.
Zuagele urged the voters, politicians and their supporters to go into the process with moderation and tolerance, while doing away with political mudslinging to keep the process peaceful and safe.
“Violence cannot move Nimba forward; a change of power through peaceful democratic elections is necessary to transform its development agenda,” Zuagele noted.
“The international community expects maturity from Liberians during this electoral process,” he stressed.
