By Wellington G. Patrick, Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, Feb 25 (LINA) - The Nimba County branch of the ruling Unity Party (UP) has adopted a ten-count resolution, for submission to the national executive committee of the party.

 
The resolution drafted in September 2013 was adopted by district delegations at the Tubman Hall in Sanniquellie at the weekend.

 
In the ten-count resolution, the partisans called for the empowerment of partisans, including provision of employment opportunities, logistics for district chairpersons, educational opportunities for youth, and projects to keep district offices running.

The resolution is also seeking authority from the national executive committee for the county branch of the Party to nominate and conduct primaries for aspirants of the 2014 mid-term senatorial race.

The Nimba branch of the Unity Party also wants the involvement of the grass rooters in the decision-making and operation of the party.

The chairman of the Unity Party Nimba County branch, Mr. Dahngbay Wogbeh, told journalists at the weekend that the Unity part needs to strengthen its local offices and encourage individuals who have worked tirelessly to maintain the growth and development of the party.

In another development, Chairman Wogbeh has disclosed that three prominent members of the Unity Party, Dr. Kadiker Rex Dahn, Deputy Director of the National Commission on Higher Education, Teeko T. Yorlay, Assistant Superintendent for Development of Nimba and Dr. Peter Weato, the proprietor of the Zoe Geh Medical Center, have announced their intention to contest the 2014 senatorial election on the ticket of the Unity Party.

The program held under the theme:" Building the Unity Party for a better tomorrow," was attended by district coordinators, youth, and women leaders of the political institution.
