Barbu Brings To 3 Lofa Presidential Aspirants

MONROVIA, November 2 (LINA) - A professor of Law at the Louis Arthur Grimes School of Law at the University of Liberia, Cllr. Jallah Allen Barbu, has declared his intention to contest the Liberian presidency in the October 2017 General and Presidential elections.

If the Law Professor’s ambition of contesting on the ticket of one of the newest political parties, the New Liberia Party (NLP), is accomplished during the forthcoming national convention of the party, he will bring to three the number of aspirants for the highest seat in the land hailing from Lofa County.

The others are Vice president Joseph N. Boakai and Augustine Ngafuan, former foreign minister.

“The fact that Lofa County can put up three aspirants for the presidency means that the county is politically industrious and not only capable but well prepared to provide the needed leadership for Liberia,” Barbu opined.

Cllr. Barbu, former head of the Law Reform Commission (LRC), believes that the electorate will examine each candidate and his platform and come up with a final decision.

Addressing a news conference recently at the NLP, Barbu disclosed that he parted company with his former party, the Liberia National Union (LINU), because of ideological differences relative to policy, approach and administrative style.

He hoped to be elected Standard-Bearer of the NLP during its up-coming convention and pledged to correct the wrongs taking place in Liberia when elected president in 2017.
