Nyonblee Sorweah Explains Why She Endorsed Boakai

Why Nyonblee Picked Boakai Over Cummings, Gongloe… Grand Bassa Senator tells Constituents

Despite being let down by former Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai for the running mate post, Grand Bassa County Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence has reckoned that she still decided to support him (Boakai) than accepting the Running Mate Position from Mr. Alexander B. Cummings and Cllr. Tiawan Saye Gongloe.

Sen. Karnga-Lawrence pointed out that though she was let down, she still believes that the former Vice President is a good leader who has the wisdom to make Liberia better, and as such, she gives preference to him over Mr. Cummings of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) and Cllr. Gongloe of the Liberia People’s Party.

Speaking at a called meeting with some citizens of a remote town in Grand Bassa recently, the Grand Bassa County Senator told the gathering that Mr. Boakai if elected as President, would better understand the plights of the people of Grand Bassa and Liberia at large, thereby delivering the deliverables.

The meeting was also attended by Senator Jeremiah Koung, Vice Presidential Aspirant of the former ruling Unity Party (UP).

Sen. Karnga-Lawrence is also of the conviction that the leadership of Mr. Boakai would encourage more concessionaires into the country, thus reviving the economy of the state.

Companies are not coming here because there is no better leadership. My people I am calling on you all to get together so that we can carry Joseph Nyuma Boakai. You got vexed because Mr. Boakai didn’t carry me as his Running Mate. Cumming came to me and I rejected him. I also rejected Gongloe, because my aim is not because of VP job, but for our county and country. If Mr. Boakai didn’t carry me I can’t say because I am angry so I will move from behind him knowing fully well that he is the most capable,” said the Senator.

We will all be Presidents when Mr. Boakai wins. If Mr. Boakai is contesting the Presidency, our brother Koung is going as Vice Running Mate, and I, as campaign head and if we win, we are all Presidents already. By that, I will be able to speak to him for him to deliver to you in recognition of my sacrifices. He will fix your roads and build your hospitals if I propose it because he believes in me,” she asserted.

We have our own party and the man they called Joseph Nyuma Boakai has his own party. So we say if we don’t look at one person to follow for that person to win so that we can have discussion, then we will be losing our country again. If we all continue to act greedy, we will not get anything. It’s not because Nyonblee is not going as Vice Running Mate means that you will not support Boakai, you are not fighting for me, you are fighting for our county and country,” she further told the gathering.
