-Rep. Snowe says the donations aim to support the Pro-poor Agenda
Bomi County District #1 Representative, Edwin Melvin Snowe, Jr., has donated two 32-seater buses to the County’s Local Government and the Government Hospital.
The Senjeh district lawmaker formally gave the 32-seater coastal buses to Superintendent Adama Robinson including the keys and bill-of-sale.
At the turning over program on Friday, June 8, at the County Administrative Building in Tubmanburg, Rep. Snowe said the bus to the county leadership marked the second bus to be turned over in the county, as another bus was recently given to the Bomi County Government Hospital to support the pro-poor agenda of the government.
The Unity Party (UP) Executive Member said the donation of the bus to the Superintendent and staff, signifies that the political campaign is over and it is time to make amends for the sake of the development.
Supt. Robinson is a member of the Liberian People’s Democratic Party (LPDP); Development Superintendent Amos M. Cooper is a member of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) as well as Tubmanburg City Mayor Obediah Varney. Mayor Varney was the candidate of the CDC during the October 10 election but emerged second to Rep. Snowe.
Last year, there were ‘bitter exchanges’ between the CDC and other parties against the UP’s candidate (Rep. Snowe) over his representation of Senjeh District after serving as Representative of Montserrado County District #5 and later changed to District #6, for 12 years.
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Rep. Snowe, following a lawsuit from former Bomi County District #1 Representative, Cllr. Gayah Karmoh.
In response, Supt. Robinson thanked Rep. Snowe for his elections and said amid the end of the 30 days, which was used to “rage political war”, it is time for politicians and citizens to come together. He used the occasion to inform the lawmaker that local government will be at his door at any time for assistance.
Tubmanburg City Mayor Varney thanked Rep. Snowe for his gesture and said his office will also knock on his doors for assistance to support his projects in the county.
Meanwhile, 604 students at the Bomi County Community College (BCCC) have honored Rep. Snowe; recognizing his faithful, dedicated and invaluable services to the county, college and the student populace.
In a program honoring Rep. Snowe on the campus of BCCC, Mr. Frederick U. Tobo, II, the president of the Students Council Government on behalf of the students gave him a “white shirt” and a “certificate.”
After an appeal for financial assistance for 15 students so that they would not drop from the school for the semester Rep. Snowe made a donation of L$50,000.
He urged the administration of BCCC to be patient as he progressively pays the fees of 35 students who are on Rep. Edwin Melvin Dekay Snowe, Jr Scholarship.
