SENATOR JOHNSON: NIMBA WILL NOT SUPPORT ANY POLITICAL PARTY IN THE 2023 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION 

Date:

LIBERIA – Senator Prince Johnson of Nimba County says the people of Nimba County will not support any political party in the 2023 presidential election.

According to him, Nimba County with an estimated population of one point two million people has declared support for some political parties in the past, but only to be abandoned and people reduced to beggars afterward.

Senator Johnson who is also an evangelist made the disclosure recently when he delivered the sermon on the theme: “Practices That Destroy The Nation.” at the Christ Chapel of Faith in Paynesville…

It can be recalled in November, Senator Prince Y. Johnson stressed that the political marriage between the Coalition for Democratic Change and the people of Nimba has come to an end after President George Weah failed to appoint sons and daughters from the county to top positions in government.

Senator Johnson contested during the 2017 General and Presidential. However, in the heat of the run-off Election, Senator Johnson declared support for the CDC-led government after he failed to qualify for the run-off.

The support from Senator Johnson caused the people of Nimba County to overwhelmingly vote for President Weah something that caused the victory for the CDC.

“Since the CDC lead government came to power in 2018, we are yet to see sons and daughters from our beloved Nimba County in those top senior positions we agreed upon and signed a document as evidence,” he said.

“The citizens of Nimba have for the past five years been knocking at my door for the president to appoint them, and we have used all diplomatic means and have consistently engaged this CDC-led government, but nothing is working to get redress and make our people who struggled during the campaign period happy,” the release stated.

It added: “Once again my fellow citizens of Nimba and supporters in Liberia and around the World, we like to take this time to inform you that the agreement we signed with the CDC has come to an end.”

He added that his stance is in the interest of the people of  Nimba and all partisans of the MDR Political Party.

“We are now constrained to make this pronouncement that we are “Halting Our Political Support” to the Coalition,” the release stated.

It added: “As a former general in the army, we believe in agreement and don’t like to betray what we have agreed upon, so we ask you to remain calm until we can later inform you about where to go.”

Evangelist Johnson is the founder of the Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction, which is now headed by Nimba County Senator Jeremiah Koung, who said will never declare support for any politicians who are in support of gay rights and lesbianism in the country

Senator Johnson cautioned Liberians never to agree to gay rights and lesbianism as a precondition for money from the international community because it is totally unbiblical and un-African.

Senator Johnson also regarded as the political godfather of Nimba County did not mention any political party or leader engage in the act.
