Just a day after Nimba County Senator, Prince Yormie Johnson called on his kinsmen not to vote for Vice President Joseph N. Boakai who is also the presidential candidate for the ruling Unity Party (UP), the Vice President is expected to depart Monrovia today, Tuesday for Nimba County at the invitation of several organizations, opinion leaders, traditional authorities, including chiefs and elders, youth and women groups to interact with the people of that County at all levels.
On Saturday, Ambassador Boakai will honor an invitation to an endorsement program at the Ganta Sports Stadium.
The Vice President’s visit to Nimba County will take him to Ganta, Yekepa, Sanniequellie, DouTiayee, Karnplay, Bahn, Sacleapea and Gbao-Zehplay.
According to the Media Office of the Vice President, there will be a prayer service on arrival in Ganta, and a project dedication in Yekepa and a series of meetings with chiefs and elders in Sanniquellie.
He will also cut ribbon to the completed DuoTiayee and Karnplay projects and hold a town hall meeting in Bahn.
There will be town hall meetings in Saclepea and other cities in the county which will be followed by an endorsement program for the Presidency of Liberia, the VP’s Media Office said.
It can be recalled that Vice President Boakai has received several endorsements from Bong, Gbarpolu, Bomi, Grand Bassa counties, while others are lined up, including Margibi and Nimba.
Lofa County from where the Vice President hails petitioned him in 2014 to contest the Presidency at a very elaborate program in Voinjama at which time a number of counties were also represented, including Nimba.
The coordinator of the Auxiliaries for the Presidential bid of Vice President Boakai boasts of over eighty auxiliaries championing the cause of “a man whose life in the public and private sectors span over thirty years with a clean record.”
