A stalwart of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) has warned partisans wanting to contest in district four Margibi County in the pending general and legislative elections to stay off because the party is strongly supporting the incumbent representative Ben A. Fofana for a second term bid.

Professor Dao Ansu Sonii, who is a member of the party`s grievance and ethics committee said no partisan has declared intention for the district yet and it is in lieu of this he is sending this caveat to partisans thinking about contesting in the area.

He stated that he wants partisans wanting to contest in the district to know ahead of time that before he/she makes up his/her mind he had already decided to support Fofana.

“No CDCians has declared their intention for the district so it is in lieu of that that I am sending this caveat. If you were thinking about running in district four I want you to know ahead of time before you make up your mind I have already decided” he warned.

According to him, he is happy that nobody has declared intention on the CDC ticket for the district. He disclosed that his decision to support the District #4 Representative is based on the fact that the strategy the Representative has in mind seems to reconcile with some of his own strategy.

“I am a CDCian and that is not going to change, but I have some special regard for Fofana and I believe that he has a mind to do things that I would have done and the strategy that he has in mind seems to reconcile with some of my own strategy,” he said.

It can be recalled that in 2005 elelctions, Ben Fofana strongly supported the candidacy of Sonii when he contested James Emmanuel Nuquay and came second. He also contested in the 2011 and 2014 senatorial elections and came second to Senator Clarice A. Jah and Rev. James W. Tornorlah respectively.
