Minister of State without Portfolio, Ambassador Commany B. Wesseh
Amb. Wesseh Tapped To Contest River Gee Senatorial Race
By Robert Dixon
MONROVIA, March 3 (LINA) - A local group in River Gee has petitioned the Minister of State without Portfolio, Ambassador Commany B. Wesseh, to contest the upcoming Mid-term Senatorial race in the county.
The group, “Progressive Friends of Wesseh”, described the Ambassador as “a nationalist and patriotic Liberian who will forever be remembered in the history of the county” for the many contributions he continues to render the people of the county.
Wesseh, who has twice unsuccessfully contested the county’s senatorial seat on the ticket of the governing Unity Party, was petitioned Sunday evening at his residence on the Du Port Road in Paynesville Cit, at a ceremony marking his return from a medical trip in the United States of America.
Chairman David Smith said the group will campaign vigorously as well as “fight democratically”, to ensure that the Minister Wesseh will this time around ascend to power as Senator for River Gee County.
“We will enter every village, town, clan, chiefdom and district in River Gee County to promote this illustrious son of our time,” he vowed.
For his part, Minister Wesseh, who could not clearly accept or reject the petition, first gave thanks to God for undergoing a successful medical treatment, noting that it was God who treated him because some people with similar heart problem did not survive the operation.
He lauded former Interim President Dr. Amos C. Sawyer, his family, children as well as well-wishers for standing by him during the time of his illness, adding that it is their prayers that helped move God to save him.
He, however, promised to work with the “Progressive Friends of Wesseh” for the growth and development of River Gee County.
