Snowe Fires Back At Dillon, Karnga-Lawrence

Bomi County Senator Edwin Melvin Snowe has fired back at Senators Darius Dillon and Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence by stating that during one of their usual safari in Bomi County on Saturday, November 6, 2021 in Married Camp, District #1, they both tried hard to redirect the attention of citizens them from their actual purpose of the visit and pretended as if they were campaigning.

In his remarks, Dillon stated that voting for Snowes candidate in the Bomi County District #1 by-election would mean putting money in Snowes pocket. Senator Dillon is also quoted as saying that voting Snowes candidate would mean that they will lobby for the President of Liberia against the citizens.

According to Senator Dillon, he was uncomfortable meeting with citizens in Married Camp because he was out of Internet connectivity in a concession area, stating that hes not use to it.

Senator Dillon is also quoted as stating that if the citizens of the plantation vote for Snowes candidate, she will listen to him and will always join him to sit with the President at Jamaica Resort.

But in his response, Senator Snowe noted that he will not be moved and urged the two opposition lawmakers not to misdirect their safari to questioning his relationship with President Weahor the Government of Liberia.

I was not elected to be an enemy to the President or the Government that I am part of to the disadvantage of my people, or stand in the way of the progress of the state. The success of our country depends on everyone of us working collectively, especially when a democratic process has elected the country’s leadership, Senator Snowe indicated.  

According to Senator Snowe, he has always advocated for thecitizens in the plantation and the entire Bomi County.

Snowe said in 2017 as Representative and Resource Person of the Special Investigative Committee on Concessions, he led a team to the then Sime Darby Plantation and provided evidence based pieces of information that led to the following: i. Theemployment of 70 persons who served as contractors for more than 3yrs; ii. A Liberian being employed as head of human resource and many other Liberians in managerial positions; iii.Construction of latrine facilities across the plantation; iv. Construction of a cafeteria on the company’s central school campus, etc.

Also as Senator, Snowe boasts of advocating and stopping the management of the companys decision to prevent children from surrounding communities from enrolling in their school system.

He also boasts of advocating recently for Mano Concession tobe brought to the Liberian Senate for scrutiny and approval, and in addition, complained about an illegal mining operation in Mambo Camp#2 that is undermining our citizens’ livelihood, among others.

In Bomi County, Snowe put himself on record for advocating and lobbying for the extension of GSM connectivity and internet facilities in rural communities.

Mr. and Mrs. Senators, how can all of this amount to pocketing money and lobbying against my people? Oh! My Brother Dillon, when I put money in your pocket to run your campaign and pay your poll watchers, in no uncertain term meant that said money was put in my pocket to give out to you.

The Bomi County lawmaker urged Senator Dillon not to assume the position of an occasion advocate as he has always presented himself.

How can you pretend to advocate for my citizens to get internet facilities in Bomi when our people in Rural MontserradoCounty, such as Todee and the different settlements are without internet and other basic social services? You exposed your fakery by this singular act of pretending to advocate for another man’s family when your own family is in serious need. This is no surprise though, because this has always been your true nature; telling lies about everything, living in falsehood, operating in treachery, etc.

Did I heard you (Senator Dillon and Lawrence) said that when my candidate wins she will join me to sit with the President at Jamaica Resort, but failed to admit that in the President’s good health, he will patiently listen to us as we discuss the development of Bomi or our country and will not be sleeping and Squandering Opportunities at the same time?  

Snowe stated that both Senators Dillon and Karnga-Lawrence should be ashamed of themselves that the people of Montserradoand Grand Bassa counties will elect them and they both will rather put their personal self and hate for a person over the development of their people who elected them.

Senator Snowe advised that no matter how small or big a project that benefit their people seen to be, they both should always access the executive branch of government in the developmental interest of their people.

Are you saying that you (Sen. Dillon and Sen. Lawrence) have purpose as senators for your counties during the remaining three years of President Weah government, you do not care about the developmental agenda of your people and will therefore not sit with the President? What if he wins another term, will you both waste the nine years given you by the respective counties? Especially for you Sen. Dillon who got elected on the popular mandate of the people of Montserrado, it is sad how you have transformed into your real self so quickly and is exposing your true nature by the day.  

However, Snowe lauded his two colleagues for visiting GbahJarkeh, specifically to continue their Safari, adding that this is the town that he just introduced a Bill to have it transformed into Township, thus asking them to kindly join him to approve this Bill since they both enjoyed their day there.

Finally, your attributes about me and the President have led the citizens of Gbah and the Plantation to embark on more endorsements for my Candidate. That will be on separate dates and locations beginning tomorrow. They are aware that His Excellency and Madam First Lady just made a huge donation to Bomi’s health sector. They’re aware of the container of books and Secretariat equipment that I brought in from the US for distribution.

He said all 10 high schools in Bomi recently received from himas Senator 10 computers, 10 printers, 10 generators and assorted school supplies. He said they see the newly constructed multipurpose building that he constructed from his pocket, for which their candidate should have taken them truly for a tour.

He said it’s sad that their candidate did not tell them that they know him as “Talk and Do” and not an empty, fake talker.

The Bomi Senator informed his colleagues that next time theyare in Bomi, they should visit Tubmanburg like they briefly did and see the massive clean-up campaign he has joined the acting city leadership to embark on, or stop by the Liberian Government Hospital and talk to the wonderful staff there about his work.

Before I forget, I am aware that after expressing what you said in pretense and lies to a gathering of citizens and residents, you took your Safari mate as is always the case, moved to a local entertainment center called “MEET ME THERE”, in GbahJarkeh Town, to continue the actual intent of their visit (Safari).
