Liberia: Bong Legislative Caucus Elects New Leadership

…. Chairman Moye revealed that the new caucus leadership will prioritize a “One Bong” development agenda over what he called partisan or party politics.

Bong County Legislative Caucus has elected a new corps of officers to steer the affairs of that body for the next three years.

The Bong County Legislative Caucus election, which took place in the conference room of the Speaker of the 55th National Legislature, J. Fonati Koffa, brought together all elected lawmakers of Bong County who unanimously voted Senator Prince Moye as Caucus chair for the next three years.

Others elected are Senator Johnny K. Kpehe Sr., Co-Chairman, and District #7 Representative Foday Fahnbulleh, Secretary-General.

In acceptance remarks, Senator Moye extolled members of the Caucus for their farsightedness in electing him as chair along with his colleagues.

According to him, the new leadership heralds a new day for Bong County on the grounds that they are going to work in the interest of the people of Bong for the overall development of the county. He said the new caucus leadership will prioritize a “One Bong” development agenda over what he called partisan or party politics. 

He further told his colleagues that he hopes for a peaceful, prosperous, and united Bong Legislative Caucus, something he believes is important to the development of Bong County. 

Senator Moye said over the years, the Bong Caucus has been divided, which he said does not bode well for the county; instead, it has undermined its development.

As it stands, all Bongese are looking up to the new caucus leadership for a peaceful, prosperous, and united Bong County.

They believed that the elected officials and all members of the Bong Legislative Caucus would commit themselves to a “One Bong County agenda”. 

Sen. Moye replaces the outgoing chairperson, Rep. Moima Briggs Mensah of electoral District #6.

In another development, the Bong Professionals Network (BON-PRO) through its Executive Director, Kweshie Tetteh, has congratulated Senators Prince Kermue Moye, Johnny K.  Kpehe Sr., and Representative Foday Fahnbulleh on their elections to the leadership of the Bong Legislative Caucus. 

Bong Professionals Network is a non-governmental professional organization organized by sons and daughters of the county with the same ideology of moving their county forward through programs and activities that will help in meaningfully contributing to the developmental agenda of Bong County. 

The BON-PRO executive described the election of the Bong Legislative Caucus leadership as sine-qua-non for development in the County and Liberia at large. 

Moreover, he admonished the new Caucus leadership to work in the interest of the people and promote the overall development of the county. He urged them to work within the confines of the law and desist from any act that has the propensity to undermine the progress of the county and Liberia at large.
