On September 18,  Deputy Speaker Cllr. J. Fonati Koffa formally launched his re-election campaign in Sasstown under the theme: “Yes, Re-elect JFK.”

The campaign launch coincided with his 60th birth anniversary as well as the inspection and dedication of ongoing projects.

The Deputy Speaker said he is confident of his victory at the October 10 polls because his reelection will be based on the work he has done over the years.

He also told hundreds of supporters late Monday afternoon in Sasstown to also reelect President George M. Weah and Senator Albert Chie.

“We are feeling great and confident that we will be making history as the first re-elected Representative—second term Representative of Grand Kru County District # 2.”

“We believed in God that the work we have done will make our people re-elect us to do more for another six years.”

“Again, we will not be seeking another term after these six years,” the Deputy Speaker said.

Considering Cllr. Koffa’s enormous developmental initiatives and other accomplishments, it places him as inarguably the first sitting lawmaker since the creation of the county in 1984 to build five schools, two radio stations, 13 hand pumps, and render financial aid and scholarships to over 4,000 students from primary to higher education in under six years.

The Deputy Speaker’s contributions, which also include the renovation of roads, the health sector, microloans, and the representation of his constituents’ interests in the Legislature, are unmatched and cannot be overemphasized.

Besides his development initiatives in the county, his assistance to youths and women in Grand Kru County, dubbed “Turning boys to men and girls to women,” has impacted many lives in relation to human capacity development, job creations, education, and self-help projects, among others.

Following the Sasstown campaign launched on Monday, September 18, Koffa has decided to also launch in other communities, aiming to propagate his contributions for six years and his campaign platform to do more for another six years.

According to the itinerary, on Friday, September 22, the Deputy Speaker will launch the Buah District Campaign, wherein all Buah communities are expected to converge in Buah Geeken.

On Saturday, September 23, Cllr. Koffa will visit Barclayville to meet with CDC leadership.

The Jloh District’s launch will be on Monday, September 25, in Nifu, and all the towns of Jloh are expected to gather in Nifu.

On Wednesday, October 4, the Lower Bolloh Campaign will be launched. Another eight towns will meet in Barforwin.  The following day, Koffa will visit Kaykpo to inspect his house project.

On Sunday, October 8, the Central Command of the JFK Reelection Campaign Team officially closed the campaign and joined CDC National Launch in Barclayville.
