-We Are United But With Political Differences
The Superintendent of Margibi County, John Z. Buway, has reacted to Margibi County District number four Representative’s claim denying reports of existing disunity among the leadership of the county.
The Margibi County Superintendent disclosed that there is no disunity among the leadership but they have political differences which are common. “I have documents in my possession indicating that the Representative has attended most of our leadership meetings,” he said.
The Superintendent narrated that he does not know where the lawmaker is coming from to say they are not united if in fact documents in his possession bear his signature.
According to him, they all have different backgrounds, and as such, it is impossible and extremely difficult for all of them to think the same way, act and behave the same way and to belong to the same organization giving the kind of country and world they find themselves.
He noted that counties that have disunity projects in these areas are not ongoing. Buway pointed out that what is important is for all of them to have a common goal which is to see the county move in the right trajectory.
The Superintendent noted that since the inception of the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf`s leadership, the county is gradually transforming. He said why is it that one person is still complaining that they are not united when there are several changes taking place in the county in the area of development, pointing at the Lango Lippaye Hall, which according to him is the biggest hall undergoing construction in Kakata.
He further explained that during the raining season it used to be extremely difficult to commute from Kakata to Bong Mines, but the road that connects the two counties (Bong and Margibi) is now paved including the administrative quarters-superintendent office, court, county education office and the national elections commission office-are situated in one block.
“We don’t have to become brothers and sisters before we can work in the government. We have not had any disagreement at the level of the leadership of the county.”
He argued if the lawmaker`s definition is for to have supported him to become treasurer for the ruling Unity Party, or for him to support he (Fofana) in his quest to become representative, then he is making a mistake.
He averred that they don’t have to agree on every political move, adding that they all don’t belong to the same political party, neither have they belonged to the same institution.
He said as far as he is concerned, they are there to do a piece of job for the people of Margibi County and they are doing it jointly. In recent times, Representative Fofana reported an alleged air of disunity among the county leadership accusing three county officials including the Superintendent of being instigators.
