James Yarkpawolo Gbarbea Declared Consensus Candidate…Citizens Of Lower Bong County Pledge Support
As the campaign for the Senatorial Mid-Term Election has begun in the country, the citizens of Lower Bong County have pledged their unflinching support for James Y. Gbarbea.
Momo Tehmeh, the Chairperson of Sanoyea, Salala and Fuamah Districts organization (SASAFU) made the disclosure recently at a well attended funeral service of one of their members, the late Fred K. Gbokolo in Jarkpata, Sanoyea District, Bong County.
According to him, the decision to support Mr. Gbarbea for the Senate came as a result of a serious consultation among the people of the above districts mentioned which he said was comprised of twenty- two clans. He however indicated that thirty persons from each clan converged for the deliberation which culminated to a unanimous decision in his favor.
The leadership of SASAFU then pointed out that the idea to select a single candidate among those whom he said might have interest in contesting for the Senatorial seat was earlier advanced by the late Fred K. Gbokolo at the time, purposely to avoid confusion among them which idea he acknowledged as commendable. He intimated that his group played a pivotal role which was aimed at galvanizing support for Gbarbea.
Mr. Tehmeh then informed the gathering that SASAFU is an organization which represents Lower Bong County and as such, its primary objective is to seek the welfare of the citizens and to also advocate for the development of the county so that the lives of the people can improve.
He stated further that since the people have spoken that Gbarbea is their candidate, then it means that their ancestors are also in one accord with them which he said will lead to nothing less, but total victory for him after the polls.
“We believe that Gbarbea has everything in his possession to deliver us because Lower Bong County has been marginalized for decades,” he said in a serious tone.
For his part, James Yarkpawolo Gbarbea expressed thanks and appreciation to the people for their support and promised to be their servant. He continued that he has been in and out of government for the past thirty years and stated that his records speak of credibility and transparency.
He then urged the people to always join forces so that victory can be achieved for the forward match of Bong County as a whole.
