Chiefs and Elders of Nimba County have publicly begged President George Manneh Weah, through the National Chairman of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Mulbah Morlu, to appoint qualified young people hailing from Nimba County to positions of trust in government.
Speaking over the weekend at the Wuo Garbee Tarpiah Intellectual Hall in Ganta, Nimba County, the Chiefs and Elders of Nimba disclosed that more young people from the County are well-educated but they are yet to be appointed to public offices by President George Manneh Weah.
Speaking on behalf of the Nimba traditional leaders, Chief Peter Barloun indicated that Nimbaians would be more delighted if some of the competent young people from the county are appointed to public offices to serve their country.
The Chiefs made the appeal to President George Weah when at least 300 Nimbaians, including the County Superintendent, David Dorr Cooper, formally joined the ruling CDC in Ganta over the weekend.
Making remarks at the occasion, the National Chairman of the CDC, Mulbah Morlu, applauded the 300 Nimbains who joined the CDC.
He also lauded the people of Nimba County for their unwavering support to the CDC.
Commenting on the Nimba traditional leaders’ request for young Nimbainas to be appointed to public offices, Chairman Morlu told the Chiefs and Elders that he will take their message to CDC political leader, President George Manneh Weah.
The CDC Chairman also assured the Nimba Elders that there will be result with respect to their request to the Liberian leader.
It may be recalled that during the 2017 presidential runoff, Nimba County’s charismatic Senator, Prince Y. Johnson, alias, “PYJ,“ supported the CDC Political leader, George Manneh Weah, for the Liberian presidency.
According to the INSIGHT’s Nimba County Correspondent, during the 2017 presidential runoff, Senator “PYJ,” widely known as the “Political Godfather of Nimba,” paraded the CDC Political leader, George Manneh Weah, from town-to-town, village-to-village in Nimba, as the best candidate, then, from among the more than then two dozen presidential aspirants.
Senator at the time told Nimbaians Weah’s leadership as President of Liberia, would ensure improvement in the living conditions of Nimbaians and Liberians in general.
Our Correspondent said it was in this direction that Nimbaians overwhelmingly voted for the Presidency of George Manneh Weah in the 2017 elections.
