2020 Mid-term senatorial candidates for Lofa County, Brownie Samukai and Joseph Jallah have begun showcasing logistical might ahead of what is expected to be a tough campaign process. The two candidates are said to be among top contenders in the ensuing October 2020 mid-term senatorial election in Lofa County.
Campaign strategists of the two traditional relatives (uncle & nephew) are said to be displaying dozen of motorcycles on social media in preparation of major campaign activities expected to be announced soon by National Election Commission (NEC).
Two uncompromising supporters, George Kpator of Team Joseph K Jallah (JKJ), and Abbas Mark Biaty of Friends of Samukai (FOS) have both taken to the social media igniting the euphoria among supporters, sympathizers and well-wishers of their respective candidates.
“If you want to fight, resign and come to Lofa county let’s see who have more impact on the people. Never will the people borrowed any one with power, you must prove your worth. TEAM#SAMUKAI#IS STRONG”, Abbas Mark Biaty is quoted as posting on his Facebook page during presentation of number of motorcycles to FOS at the home of his political leader in Foya.
Abbas said, the deployment of motorcycles was a continuation of logistical supply across the county, adding members of FOS should use the bikes to enhance ongoing mobilization ahead of real campaign season.
“We are pleased to inform our supporters in and out of Liberia that we have deployed motorcycles and other logistics across the Nine (9) administrative districts to enable the team of Samukai move, propagate the dream and to undo whatever lies some of our enemies might have spread about us”, he said to their supporters.
Abbas bragged that FOS are prepared to correct what he termed as “unnecessary contradictions leading to the 2020 process, saying gone are those days when candidates go around and buy votes with bag of rice”.
He reminded opposition that the 2020 Midterm Senator elections in Lofa County is going to be about ideas not bags of rice. He cautioned the (opposition) to stop sharing rice and tell the people how they intend to improve their living conditions, noting the people have learned a lot, and are not prepare to take chances with “weakling” politicians this time.
For his part, Jallah’s strong man, George Kpator told their supporters to be aware of Judases of the people out there who are coming again acting as if they have been there for them, but in reality they have never been there. He told them to use this message as key campaign message for the people in the towns and villages.
“There are lots of Judases of the people out there; they are coming again acting as if they have been there for you. NO! They have never been. This is the message you must take to our people in the towns and villages. Come in with your contributions today”, Kpator warned supporters.
The tough talking political strategist of two times defeated senatorial candidate, George Kpator thanked the Almighty God that Team Joseph K Jallah (JKJ) through its special committee, the United Lofa Citizens Council (CULCC) is able to present initial supply of transportation to youth leaders and organizations’ heads in the County to move around freely in pursue of their organizational vision and mission.
Kpator who claimed he is the Diaspora Advisory Chairman for Jallah’s campaign used the occasion to encourage supporters of Cllr. Jallah not build their campaign message on religious hate, tribal exploitation for what he termed as “wrong” reasons. “To our family members everywhere, to our friends, especially those of you who really want to see a better leadership in Lofa County, a leadership that is NOT building its campaign on religious hate, tribal exploitation for the wrong reasons, but based on moral decadence, Kpator noted.
He however admonished their supporters to go out and mobilize, and not to sit and leave things to the win, stating that it is time to make contribution to the campaign process.
