Nimba Lawmaker Preaches Doctrine of Unity

Nimba County District #1 Representative, Jeremiah Kpan Koung, has called on citizens of the county to put aside their individual differences and “ego” to work in unity for the growth and development of the county.

Speaking recently during the dedication of a market building constructed by his office in Gbloryee Community, Koung said he has observed with keen interest the growing wave of hate messages being spewed by politicians, their supporters and ordinary citizens against each other in the name of defending their individual “sides and interests’ ahead of the 2020 Senatorial election.
 
According to him, the latest development is unhealthy and has the propensity to plunge the county into chaos ahead of the election, something which, he noted, would have lasting negative impact on the county.
 
“Politics will come and go and we will always remain here as citizens of Nimba; therefore we must learn to be tolerant and avoid spreading hate messages as we go about talking our politics,” Rep. Koung told the jubilant audience.
 
Koung, who himself has thrown his hat in the race for the county’s Senatorial seat, asserted that citizens of the county are allowing themselves to be used by “divisive” politicians who, he said, have absolutely nothing to offer the county and have therefore resorted to spreading hate and divisive messages.
 
According to Representative Koung, everything that citizens of the county are boasting of today was achieved as a result of unity, hard work, peaceful coexistence and resilience, and as such citizens must remain on that path.
 
The Nimba County District #1 lawmaker wants citizens to be more objective and alert to be able to quiz politicians about what they (politicians) have done and will do for the county when elected next year, instead of allowing politicians to use them as wagons to drive them (politicians) to their political destinations.
 
Representative Koung, who is serving his second term as Representative of Nimba County District #1, brings to six the number of aspirants wishing to replace incumbent Senator Thomas S. Grupee as Senator of the county.
