By: Emmanuel Toe

Nimba- Ahead of 2023 general elections, Citizens of Buutuo Township, in Nimba County have petitioned Mr. Nya D. Twayen, Jr to contest as senator in the area.

The petitioning now means that the ex-deputy director general of the National Social Security and Welfare Cooperation (NASSCORP) will be a competitor to incumbent Senator Prince Yormie Johnson to the post in the next year’s elections.

According to the petitioners, Mr. Twayen is the only and best alternative to take over from the controversial Nimba County’s ‘political godfather’ next year after being elected on two consecutive terms of nine years each.

Reading the petition statement, Madam Regina Laqua said: “We the people of Buutuo Township have hereby resolved to petition Mr. Nya D. Twayen, Jr, a son of Nimba to contest for the senatorial seat of Nimba County in the coming 2023 general and presidential election in the Republic of Liberia.”

They further announced that their aim of reposing confidence in Mr. Twayen is because they believe he is capable enough to alleviate them from abject poverty and the high level of ill-literacy.

They believe that electing Mr. Twayen will bring unity amongst citizens of Nimba in spite of their ethnic or tribal diversity.

Receiving the petition, Mr. Twayen who is also a former Assistant Minister for Youth Services at the Ministry of Youth and Sports embraced their calls and wholeheartedly accepted the petition to contest comes 2023.

“Today, Buutuo is about to make history again. On December 24th 1989, a little over 33 years ago, a revolution was launched through this same region. Whether those changes was positive or not…Buutuo still remains an integral part of our [national] history he” said.

Twayen is believed to be an experienced public servant who has served in government for years ranging from assistant minister for Youth Services at the Ministry of Sports of Liberia to the Deputy Director General of the National Social Security and Welfare Cooperation (NASSCORP).

His tenure at the latter position came to a constitutional end last month after nine years.
