Roger Domah, the newly-elected Representative of Nimba County Electoral District #7, has promised to complete all public projects his predecessor did not complete until his tenure expired.
Rep. Domah, who spoke in Saclepea on Saturday, March 10, at a well attended reconciliation conference organized by his office, also assured the residents that he would complete any of the projects his predecessor had initiated.
“Any project [that] government money was used for in the district will be completed by my administration while at the same time we embark on new ones,” Domah declared.
He spoke against a typical Liberian tendency that allow any new and in-coming government to abandon state-funded projects to the detriment of public resources. Rather, said government tends to reinvent another project to be funded by the same taxpayers’ money.
Domah called on the citizens to remain united and work together so as to complete any of the public projects his predecessor, Worlea Saywah Dunah, did not complete.
“Even though I have my own initiatives that the citizens would point to in the future, let us first complete the incomplete ones to safeguard public funds,” he said.
He promised to make his leadership inclusive, thereby calling on his supporters and the citizens in general to reconcile, whatever the differences, to live and work in peace and unity.
“I am appealing to everyone of you to come together as one body, so we can move our development agenda forward, because this is no time to campaign,” Domah said.
He said that nobody in the 2017 October legislative race was more qualified or had better ideas than the rest of the contestants; but if they come together they can make the district better again since the election was over.
“No matter what tribe you speak, which religion you belong to and which party one voted for, my heart remains freely open to all, because I am here to embrace everyone so that we can work together,” the Representative said.
“District #7 is centrally located, whatever we do here can easily spread to the rest of the County and if we come together and put our differences aside, Nimba County will follow suit,” he said.
Domah’s victory in the October 2017 legislative election was challenged by one of the contestants, Evan Koah, over alleged fraud. However the Supreme Court ruled in Domah’s favor.
