Open Letter to the National Legislature

Dear Honorable Speaker Emmanuel Nuquay and Pro Temp Armah Jallah:
Please accept my compliments and best wishes on behalf of the Elections Coordinating Committee (ECC).

The ECC is deeply concerned that as the country approaches the 2017 election year, a decision is yet to be reached between the National Election Commission (NEC) and the Legislature on setting a new threshold to reapportion constituencies for the 2017 presidential and legislative elections in keeping with Articles 80 (d) and (e) of the Liberian Constitution.

No to Division

Let me take this time to plead with our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, grandfathers, grandmothers, nephews, nieces, of Gbi-Doru that the solution to the current problems that sadly confront the communities is not to go to River Cess County. We need to keep engaging with the Nimba County Administration and the County Legislative Caucus to help find needed solutions to the serious situations in this part of our county. I understand your frustration as I have gone to your towns and villages and slept in those communities and know what you have been going through.

Kudos to BCCC Administration

Mr. Editor,
I am writing to congratulate the President of Bomi County Community College (BCCC) for his good leadership that led to the restoration of the college’s school of nursing program that will now afford 140 students, who were sent home when the college’s accreditation was withdrawn in 2015, to return to get the education they have a passion for.

An Open Letter to Mama Twah River District, Nimba County

Dear Mama Twah River,
Let me commence this letter by thanking you for your efforts to develop the district. There are many development projects ongoing in your area. For that, I appreciate you, my Dear Mama.

Mama, with all the development projects that are taking place by your children, there are many serious problems that you need to resolve without wasting any time, or else things will go offhand.

Mama, I’m so confused and embarrassed by the way your area is producing so many of your children for the only seat in the House of Representatives. Why so Mama?

Dear Madam President:

Despite my poor health I have flown all the way from my home in Finland where I have resided for the past 12 years to appeal to you as a fellow mother (and grandmother) for the URGENT release of my son, Lieutenant Melvin Kolleh Tolbert.
