“Being in the opposition does not mean that you should close your eyes on good work and development of the country of which President George Manneh Weah and his administration is doing,” Rep. Tokpa asserted. According to him, if the Liberian leader continues on his good footing of developing Liberia, he will not have any political competitor during the 2023 Presidential and Legislative Elections. The Nimba Lawmaker pointed out that what amazed him most about the Liberian leader is his passion to help develop Liberia as well as fulfilling on all of his promises to his people.
He named the relocation of the GW Hardy Hospital from its original location in Sanniquellie City to now the new venue in Sekimpa where a promise was fulfilled by breaking ground for the project. Moreover, he commended the Liberian Chief Executive for also breaking ground for a market project in Gonolorpa, Nimba County. At the same time, the Nimba Lawmaker encouraged his people to be strong and get involved into the soil to help grow what they eat and eat what they grow. Rep. Tokpa, among other things, added that it is time that all Liberians embrace development and work together for the betterment of the country void of politics.
In brief remarks, President Weah noted that it does not take a college graduate to know that things are not fine and need to be addressed. “You don’t have to bring a Harvard graduate to know that there are bad roads in the southeast and there is a need to fix them of which we are doing gradually,” President Weah asserted. He again re-echoed the need for Liberians to join him in the best quest to help develop the country. “We are not the problems but we see the problems and as problem solvers, we will solve them and for those that are unresolved, we will work collaboratively with you to help fix it,” he reassured his people. Nimba, the Liberian leader reiterated, is a great city and there is a need for it to grow and that can only happen once they work together for the betterment of the larger society.
