The former Senate Pro-Tempore, Gbehzohngar M. Findley, has reaffirmed his commitment to complete some of the projects he initiated that were not completed he lost a mid-term senatorial election in the county.
Some of the projects, he said are a program to empower women and the completion of school construction under his regime.
At a thanksgiving service on Thursday held in Compound #1, Grand Bassa County, Mr. Findley said he was gratified for the opportunity provided him to serve the county as a Senator for nine years.
Hundreds of residents among them the elders, women and youth groups witnessed the thanksgiving program in recognition of Mr. Findley’s many other contributions to the people of Bassa and the country.
He promised to continue validating his leadership through the completion of some of the unfinished projects as part of his campaign promises or commitment he made in 2005 when he was elected as senator.
He prophesized that the 2017 general and presidential elections would be a different political transitional period for the people of Bassa where they would be faced with the goal of providing better living conditions, leadership opportunities.
“We will validate those who intend to ascend or take the mantle of leadership come 2017, because the people of Bassa deserved better living conditions and livelihood. Bassa must have people in position that will prioritize the interest of those who elected them and ensure that the county remains part of the decision-making process of Liberia,” he maintained.
The Grand Bassa former lawmaker was accompanied by his colleague from Grand Cape Mount County Senator, former Senator Abel M. Masasaley.
Massaley told the residents of Grand Bassa that there are consultations taking place at different levels with the aim to provide better leadership come the 2017 elections.
He attributed their losses to the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus and said they remain hopeful to achieving bigger roles in the future.
The residents through their various leaders hailed the former senators for their many contributions to the country.
“This is the man who increases the literacy rate in our county and ensured that over 300 students obtained their first degree through scholarship programs. We pledge our commitment to you as 2017 comes,” Edward Garmai, Grand Bassa County Grand Zoe said of Findley.
