…….In Nimba County
By Alloycious David
Hell nearly broke loose, when residents of a town in Nimba County objected to the presence of ‘strange’ individuals, who surfaced in their community over the weekend to register.
Serious commotion broke out when some citizens resisted the registration of some individuals allegedly trucked to their community by Representative Garrison Yealue of Nimba County District # 2.
An aspirant for Nimba County District #4, Alexander B. Voker confirmed the information and said strange people are pulling into the district to register.
“There is a lot of trucking taking place in Nimba District # 4; there are strange people who are not from the district pulling in to get register,” Mr. Voker disclosed.
He explained that the protest nearly turned violent adding “tension was high, citizens of the town were very upset, but I asked them to do a formal complaint to the election magistrate in Sanniquellie.”
Although Voker did not have evidence to implicate Garrison Yealue, Nimba County District # 4 Representative, however, he claimed that there are lots of speculations in the district alleging that the lawmaker is linked to the trucking of voters.
Voker, who is aspiring to unseat Rep. Yealue, further said he is very concerned about the trucking of people in the district because it de-legitimizes the concerns of the constituency.
Voker said his campaign team would make a formal complaint to the National Elections Commission (NEC) about the trucking of voters in the district.
Rep. Yealue’s phone was switched-off when contacted, but an aide said he is currently in the district where mobile network is unavailable.
