Group Asks Gongloe To Contest Presidency In 2023

A group under the umbrella “Team Gongloe” has called on Counselor Tiawan Saye Gongloe, President of the Liberia National Bar Association (LNBA), to contest the Liberian presidency in the 2023 general and presidential elections.

The group is a conglomeration of political and interest groupings including the Movement to Ensure Liberia’s Transformation (MELT), Volunteers For Change (Voice) and Liberian People’s Party (LPP).

Team Gongloe is a community of Liberians with diverse political, economic and social orientation but bordered with a view that “a better Liberia is possible” when straight adherence to the rule of law is never compromised.

The group in a statement issued over the weekend, expressed the belief that God has blessed the nation with everything and that its growth and development must be harnessed only from the rich soil and waters inherited from the ancestors.

The statement noted  that, henceforth, the fundamental goal of Team Gongloe is to form alliances with like-minded Liberians at home and abroad who have hope in the integrity characters of Counselor Tiawan Saye “Waamu or Pauleapa” Gongloe, which he has exemplified.

The statement  said that Gongloe is a congenial lawyer and human rights campaigner with decades of experience in leadership, demonstrated through the achievement of hard work, honesty and commitment.

Gongloe, the  statement indicated,  is a victim of political repression and a person who  has served his country in various capacities including former Minister of Labor, former Chief Prosecutor (Solicitor General), former Teaching Assistant, Economics Department, University of Liberia and now President, Liberian National Bar Association (LNBA).

Others are Lecturer, Louise Arthur Grimes School of Law, University of Liberia, and Chairman of the Movement for Justice in Africa (MOJA), Member of the Supreme Court Grievance and Ethics Committee, Life Member, Governing Board of the African Bar Association and Member, Public Interest Lawyers Association of West Africa amongst others. The statement concluded.
