“Team Jorquelleh” Launches VR Campaign In Bong 

By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, February 15 (LINA) - A political pressure group in Gbarnga, Bong County, called “Team Jorquelleh,” has launched a “massive awareness campaign on voter registration” in the central province of Liberia.

According to the head of Team Jorquelleh and a representative aspirant of Electoral District #3 in Bong County, E. Edward Gboe, the intent for launching the civic voter registration education campaign is to buttress the National Elections Commission (NEC) recent call for Liberians to turn out in their numbers to register.

It may be recalled that the Chairman of the NEC, Cllr. Jerome Korkoya, recently informed the public that the NEC anticipates 2.5 million eligible voters to turn out and register during the voter registration period, which runs from February 1 to March 7.

Mr. Gboe told the audience at the launch that the only way voters will participate and have a voice during the pending presidential and legislative elections is to register and obtain their voter registration cards.

The Team Jorquelleh leader cautioned Liberians against staying away during the voter registration period, urging them to get hold of their voter registration cards as their participation in the electoral process is key to the future of the country. 

The program was held recently at the David Kuyon Sports Stadium and attended by more than 6,000 eligible voters who paraded through the principal streets of Gbarnga ahead of the launch.
