Nimba County – Senator Prince Y. Johnson of Nimba County says he is overwhelmed by the humanitarian works being done by a son of the county both in the diaspora and at home.
Speaking to reporters recently at his Capitol Building offices, Senator Johnson said the chief executive officer of African Cultural Alliance of North America Inc (ACANA), Vofee Saye Jabateh, who recently returned from the United States to register for the October elections has demonstrated love for country by coming to register to vote.
Senator Johnson thanked his kinsman for the level of support he has been giving Liberians in the United Statements and his brothers and sisters in the county.
Making specific reference of the level of services Mr. Jabateh is offering to diasporas Liberians and other Africans in the U.S, Senator Johnson said - “This young Liberian is extremely doing a very good job in the United States, helping his fellow Liberians and other Africans who are desire of staying in that part of the world; I am proud of him.”
Early last month, March 2017, a delegation led by Mr. Jabateh arrived in the country to be a part of the just ended voter registration exercise, and to familiarize themselves with the current political situation in the country, as Liberia prepares to hold its general and presidential elections on October 10, 2017.
During Mr. Jabateh and his delegation stay in the Country, several acquaintance visits were made, including Vice Joseph N. Boakai, Chairman and members of the Nimba County Legislative Caucus, and a daylong visit to his home town in Kpain, Nimba County where he made his presence felt when he and a member of the delegation made use of the voter registration period at district #8.
However, some residents of Kpain who spoke to our reporter during a visit in the town, expressed happiness for the visit of their citizen, making reference of Mr. Jabateh who they indicated has been away for a long period of time, and further urged him to make his visit to Kpain a regular one.
