By Reuben Sei Waylaun
As rumors spread across the country about the division of Nimba County, citizens of Nimba County electoral district seven have concluded townhall meetings distancing themselves from such decision emanating from some citizens and politicians of the county and Liberia at large.
The northern county has been in the center of discussions recently to remain as one county or be divided into two or three counties.
However, those against the division of the county once presented their petition to the House of Representatives and they are now joined by Nimba electoral district seven citizens.
Making the disclosure to this paper Thursday, Nimba County electoral district seven Representative, Roger Domah said following the intensification of the division of Nimba, he as lawmaker visited his district to hear from the people themselves regarding the division of Nimba.
According to him, during their discussions, he was mandated by the citizens to reveal that they (citizens) of that part of the county are not in favor of the division of Nimba.
Representative Domah said he only attended the meetings to listen to the citizens and get their decision as their messenger (Representative).
“They said Nimba should remain as one county today and tomorrow. We are against the division of Nimba,” Representative Domah quoted the citizens in an interview with legislative reporters.
“The common people don’t want to be divided and we need to respect the views of the citizens,” he said.
At the same time, Representative Domah has announced some interventions made during the Independence Day break given them as lawmakers of the country.
He said during the break, he provided zincs, generators to a school and police station all in Bahn. He also provided zinc to the Saclepea police station and funded a manual rehabilitation of the road linking Saclepea and Bahn cities all in his district, a decision overwhelmingly appreciated by citizens of the district.
