KAKATA, MARGIBI COUNTY – The leader of the revolutionary political party, Economic Freedom Fighters of Liberia (EFFL), Mr. Emmanuel D. Gonquoi, has reported that his campaign for senator of Margibi County has hit the rocks.
Gonquoi told Margibi citizens, mostly his supporters at the weekend that it’s a reality his senatorial campaign is challenged due to a lack of logistics and resources to enhance his effectiveness.
However, Gonquoi, who is also Commander-In-Chief of the EFFL, admonished his supporters to continue to be hopeful, indicating; “we must all keep hope by keeping the fighting spirit in us alive.”
He informed citizens of Margibi County, whom he described as loving people that in spite of the challenges with which he’s faced, former Minister of State, Nathaniel McGill, who is also a contender in the Margibi senatorial race for next month’s presidential and legislative elections, should never be an option.
“You must never reduce the image of our County to this criminal,” Gonquoi warned citizens of Margibi, adding that he understands the emotions his supporters attach to his lack of effectiveness, but pointed out that “as children of the Lion Kingdom, we must keep fighting for victory by talking with each one.”
Mr. McGill, who until his resignation late last year served as Minister of State and chief of office staff in the office of President George Weah, is serving a U.S. sanction for his alleged involvement in public corruption. He’s one of three top ex-officials of the Weah-led government sanctioned by the U.S. government in August of last year for their alleged involvement with public corruption.
“The mission is still possible with our collective community engagements,” Gonquoi further admonished his supporters.
