GBARNGA, September 18 (LINA) - The Chairman of the Bong County Legislative Caucus, Senator Henry Yallah, has left the country for visits to the United States, South Africa and Nigeria.
In an interview with the Liberia News Agency (LINA) via mobile phone before departing the country, Yallah said the visit to the U.S. is to follow up on discussions some members of the Caucus initiated with Bong County citizens and American institutions during their visit there.
He named the Caucus members as Representatives Tokpa Mulbah, Prince Moye and George Mulbah.
Senator Yallah revealed that while in California, he will meet with a group of Bong citizens headed by Mr. Mark Vagbelee to discuss the Caucus’ intervention in the release of a 40-foot container of education materials expected to benefit students of Bong and neighboring counties.
He plans to later proceed to the State of Maryland to meet with the leadership of the United Bong County Association (UBCA) in the Americas and then to Washington, D.C. to meet with the Liberian Ambassador, Jeremiah Sulunteh, to discuss the development of the county.
The Bong County Caucus Chair noted that though the development needs of the county are enormous, he will be strategic in his engagements with stakeholders by prioritizing areas that have serious development needs.
Yallah said on his way from the U.S. he will make stops in South Africa and Nigeria to discuss the People’s Unification Party (PUP) with several political actors for possible partnership.
He said while away, Representative Corpo Barclay will chair the Caucus in close consultation with Representative George Mulbah.
He is expected to return to the country early November.
