Female Aspirant Rise Up In Bong District Elections

By Patrick Tokpah (Bong Contributor)

As political activities heat up in Liberia, Bong County Electoral District 5 Representative Aspirant, Viola Temah has described herself as a formidable force ahead of the October 10, 2023, General and Presidential Elections.

In an interview with the Inquirer Newspaper in the county, Mrs. Temah indicated that the district has had male political representations over the past years, but the district is yet to get the needed development under the watch of those who have served the district.

The Bong County tough-talking female Representative Aspirant further attributed the backwardness and underdevelopment of Suakoko and Yelequelleh administrative Districts to the lack of visionary leadership in the male Representatives who have led the district for the past decades.

“Our district has been underrepresented at the Legislature by those selfish male politicians in the county. Our people are still living in poverty; farm-to-market roads are still deplorable, no schools and health centers in the district for our people,” Madam Teameh noted.

According to Mrs. Temah, if she is allowed to represent the people of Suakoko District at the parliament, she will prioritize agriculture, women empowerment, education and good health care in the district.

Madam Temah who had served as Market Superintendent of the Gbarnga Central Market, Mayoress of the City of Gbarnga, and a Board Member of the Bong County Technical College further described her past workings in the county as rewarding to the county and its inhabitants.

Meanwhile, the Suakoko District 5 Representative Aspirant is calling on residents of the district to retrospect on her past workings in the county and give her a chance to represent the district at the Liberian House of Representatives.

Additionally, the Bong County Electoral District 5 Representative Aspirant has vowed to deliver the district from those she referred to or described as failed politicians.

Madam Temah is at the same time calling on Suakoko and Yelequelleh Administrative Districts’ citizens not to be carried away by those she describes as election-time investors who are running in the political corridor of the district spreading falsehood and promising things that are far from reality.

She said that the district needs people like her who have the vision and experience for the development of the district, not people who are only interested in their pockets and families.
