Superintendent Walker Emphasizes Unity Ahead Of Elections

By Patrick N. Tokpah (contributor Bong)
The Superintendent of Bong County, Esther Y. Walker, has underscored the need for a united Bong ahead of the 2023 General and Presidential Elections in Liberia.
The Bong County Superintendent said if Bongese are united, the county stands to benefit from a massive development.
According to her, for too long, residents of the county have been divided on political line, which she believes has hugely contributed to the underdevelopment of the county.
The tough-talking Bong County Superintendent said it’s now time that Bongese put aside their political differences and work together in the best interest of the county and Liberia at large.
She further accused some past and current leaders of the county of contributing to some of the misunderstandings in the county.
However, the Bong County controversial Superintendent did not name any past and current leaders who are contributing to the division but described the fragmentation in Bong County as grave, something she said is not healthy for the development of the county and its people.
“I hope as citizens of the county; we can put aside our differences and work together for the common good of Bong County,” Sup. Walker noted.
Meanwhile, the Bong County Superintendent revealed that she has US$ 200,000 from the government of Liberia for developmental purposes.
The Bong County Superintendent boastfully said the fund will be used to complete some of the incomplete projects in the County.
“Development will take place because there is enough or sufficient money in the County’s Account,” Walker added.
She further noted that the county has taken the lead to implement the Local Government Act (LGA) of Liberia and revealed that the Ministry of Internal Affairs is currently using the LGA document in order to help develop a simpler version for the county.
The Superintendent made the statement recently in Gbarnga, Bong County when she held a reflection and appreciation program for the Bong County Sports Association and the Steering Committee; which was attended by local citizens and media workers in the county.
