Bassa Political Differences Finally Resolved

first_imgThe political power struggle that engulfed Grand Bassa County in the past months which forced former Superintendent Etweda Cooper out of office has been resolved, Superintendent Levi Demah told President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf over the weekend in Buchanan.Stakeholders in the county have now resolved to work together to move the county forward and to ensure development that the county yearns for, he told the President.There have been persistent concerns that Grand Bassa is divided on political issues based on deceptive politics which were impediments to the progress of the county.Former Supt. Cooper resigned early September 2015 following months of stand-off with the county’s Legislative Caucus over the use of the county’s development fund. Madam Cooper stated that her resignation was the best way forward for the county amid an atmosphere of calumny, invective, intense acrimony, and deliberately circulated falsehoods that typify political and societal exchanges in the county.“We have resolved all our differences and have agreed to work together for the betterment of Grand Bassa. This is evidenced by the presence of all of our lawmakers and some of our eminent citizens,” Demah told President Sirleaf at the dedicatory ceremony of the newly constructed Buchanan City Hall. The Chairperson of the Grand Bassa County Legislative caucus, Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence, also spoke favorably about the working relationships that now exist in the county and expressed happiness that calm has returned to ensure the development of the county.Resolving the county’s political differences was in fulfillment of a promise made by Superintendent Demah when he took office.At his induction ceremony, Demah said although expectations were high, people should be reminded that no leader could make it alone.“Our stewardship will be participatory and consultative,” he further said. “No one should feel and will not be marginalized in this new equation…”Demmah promised to avoid deceptive politics to encourage unity and regain the deserving relevance the county needed and noted that reconciliation and unity, Youth development, an improved financial management system and infrastructure development were his priorities.The return of smooth working relationship to the county between the local government and the Legislative Caucus was also echoed by the Liberia Traditional Council Chairman Zanzan Karwor. “We are happy that our children have now agreed to work together again. This is the only way our county will develop,” he said.Supt. Demah did a great job to bring all the stakeholders to agree to work together. “Madam President, our new superintendent is working hard. He has made everybody to come together to work for this county. We are happy that you brought this man here,” chairman Kawor declared.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Alastair Cook calls on Joe Denly to seize England opportunity in 2nd Test vs West Indies

first_imgFormer captain Alastair Cook has backed England’s decision to pick Joe Denly at the expense of Keaton Jennings for the second Test in West Indies, saying the Kent batsman must now aim to cement his place in the lineup head of this year’s Ashes series.Left-hander Jennings, who averages 25.86 in 16 Tests, lost his place in the team after scores of 17 and 14 in England’s defeat by 381 runs in the first Test in Barbados.”The Ashes is still seven months away so a lot can happen in sport – four Tests, but a lot can happen in that time,” Cook told BBC’s Test Match Special podcast.”Jonathan Trott came in and did well in a big Test match when we had to win a game and he got 100 (on debut in 2009) – you have to deal with what’s in front of you.”For Denly it represents a late chance to prove his worth ahead of the English summer, which will see Joe Root’s side take on Ireland at Lord’s before the Ashes series against Australia gets underway at Edgbaston on August 1.The 32-year-old, who has not opened in first-class cricket since 2015, enjoyed an remarkable 2018 domestic season in which he scored 1729 runs in all formats, alongside claiming 57 wickets with his leg-spin bowling.”It’s great opportunity for Joe,” Cook added. “He’s had an interesting couple of years in county cricket, taking on more responsibility at Kent and deserves his call-up.”Also Read | Sanjay Manjrekar-Michael Vaughan war-of-words escalates over flawed approach tweetlast_img read more
