Tipoteh Calls For Ethnic Unity
Dr. Togba-Nah Tipoteh, the Liberian and African Unifier through the Movement for Justice in Africa (MOJA), has called upon the Krao (Kru) people of Liberia to use their unity to unite the people of Liberia.
In this most challenging time of Ebola, Dr. Tipoteh told the Krao people that just as no one in Liberia is safe from Ebola when one person in Liberia has Ebola, no ethnic group in Liberia is safe from disunity and poverty when Liberia is disunited and poor.
According to Dr. Tipoteh, this is why the Krao people must use their strong longstanding unity to unite all of the people of Liberia. Dr. Tipoteh praised the Krao unity for taking action that is helping to stop Ebola and he made an appeal for this unity to move forward to unite Liberians to stop poverty.
Dr. Tipoteh made this call for national unity over the weekend in Diyankpo, Jaedae Statutory District, Sinoe County when he served as Keynote Speaker at the 3rd Annual of the Krao 48 Sections, the unifying Organization of the Krao people.
Speaking to hundreds of delegates from as far as Montserrado and Grand Kru counties, Dr. Tipoteh commended the Krao delegates for their outstanding work, under the distinguished Chairmanship of Elder David Swen.
He urged the delegates to go out and move forward by helping to unite the people of Liberia to end their too-longstanding suffering from the lack of a basic living standard.
Dr. Tipoteh said that getting rid of the poverty and suffering is urgent to prevent violence because the poor people of Liberia are frustrated and desperate, living on less than 85 Liberian dollars a day.
Knowing that Dr. Tipoteh has announced his candidacy to be the next President of Liberia through the 2017 Elections, journalists at the Convention asked him why he did not come to Sinoe County in a massive way with a long convoy of vehicles, street parades and banners as well as honoring programs as some other presidential candidates have done.
Dr. Tipoteh replied simply that he does not want to engage in illegal political campaigning and he will wait patiently until the legal time for presidential campaigning is declared open by the National Elections Commission (NEC) in 2017.
Dr. Tipoteh concluded his visit to Sinoe by installing the newly elected officers of the Administrative Council of the First United Methodist Church in Greenville, the Capital City, on Sunday and then on the following day he held talks with the Management of the Golden Veroleum Company, based in Butaw, near Greenville, to receive a briefing on the activities of the Company.
