LIBERIA: Rep Snowe Senatorial Bid Cracks As Bomi Citizens, Chiefs Warn Him To Back Off

Representative Edwin M. Snowe of District # 1, Bomi County seems worried about his senatorial bid for Bomi

TUBMANBURG , (LINA).- A cross-session of citizens, including chiefs, women and the elders council of Senjeh District in Bomi County are calling on Representative Edwin M. Snowe of District One to cancel his plan, if there is any, of contesting for a senatorial seat in the forthcoming midterm election.

According to the citizens, in a communication to Rep. Snowe, he still has a three-year mandate of the people from District #1 and unfulfilled promises made to them during his last campaign. They warned their lawmaker that if he continues his quest, it will be a challenge and total disregard for them.

“Please be reminded that you still have a mandate for the remaining three (3) years of the people of Senjeh and campaign promises to be fulfilled. However, if you decide otherwise, your decision will be considered a challenge and a total disregard to the people of Senjeh District,” the citizens, including chiefs, women and elders warned Rep. Snowe.

In the letter, the citizens stated that they have been reliably informed of Rep. Snowe’s desire to contest the 2020 senatorial election, evidenced by former Senator Lahai G. Lansana’s open endorsement of his candidacy.

They added that Rep. Snowe promised to improve education, women empowerment, healthcare delivery system and agriculture programs.

In addition, they alleged that Rep. Snowe promised to rehabilitate the road from Coleman Hill to Sackie Town and also promised to lobby with the government of Liberia for the construction of a high school for Gba-jakeh community within the district.

“But all of these, promises,” they said, “have not been fulfilled.”
