GANTA, February 22 (LINA) - Liberia National Police (LNP) Deputy Inspector General for Operations, Abraham Kromah, Wednesday held a day-long citizens’ dialogue with young people of Nimba County.

The dialogue, which was held at the Ganta Youth Center, brought together students, heads of several youth groups, motorcyclists, LNP personnel and journalists, among others.

Nimba County Superintendent-designate D. Dorr Cooper and other local county authorities also attended the dialogue.

Speaking to the young people, Inspector Kromah said the meeting was called to sensitize them on the maintenance and promotion of peace during and after the October 2017 elections.
Kromah said he initiated the meeting targeting youth across the country because they are the ones mostly used to instigate chaos and unrest in the country.

Kromah said he also intends to take the dialogue to all other parts of the country.

According to the LNP Deputy Inspector General, as head of the LNP personnel providing security for the elections, he has the responsibility to take the message of peace to every part of the country, with youth being the prime target.

He urged them not to allow themselves to be used by others to get involved in violence and any form of crime that may take the country back to its dark days.

In remarks, Nimba County Superintendent Cooper thanked Inspector Kromah for the initiative and called on young people to always add value to themselves, and not to allow politicians to use them to tear others apart in the name of politics.

Meanwhile, several of the young people who interacted with Inspector Kromah advanced several recommendations to him.

They called on Inspector Kromah and authorities of the LNP to increase the presence of LNP officers in the county, especially Ganta, and provide logistics for LNP personnel assigned in the county.

The youth also appealed for the lifting of the 8:00 p.m. ban imposed on motorcyclists in 2016.

The recommended the setting up of a local media relations of LNP in the various counties to release timely information, and ensure police-civilian engagements, among others.
