PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE!!
Ladies and gentlemen of the Press, Margibi County Legislative caucus, Margibi County Administers, Civil Society organizations, Conscious Youth, Students, Marketeers, Health workers, Teachers, Plantation workers, Street Vendors, Fellow Margibians, one and all
We bring you greetings and will like to make known the many ills currently hovering Margibi County and if care isn’t taken, we shall all be left to regret the aftermath. Hence, the above solidarity group will like to have the public informed about issues stalling growth and demeaning progress in our county. The group will like to frown on the political maltreatment and continued Conspiracies being orchestrated particularly among the young people in the circles of Hon. Nuquay.
The Honorable has begun fighting the very people that stood in sun and rain, traveled places, and took insults to get him to where he is today. Hon. Nuquay intends to divide the young people of the county so he gets to do whatever pleases him. This is our mind is dangerous and has the propensity of fueling conflict across the length and breadth of the county yea the country.
We want to state emphatically clear, that we won't sit idle anymore and allow a repeat of his divide and rule method when he served as representative of District 5 and subsequently Speaker of the National Legislature. The young people are resolved and this time, they shall stand their ground and speak thru to the face of Hon. Nuquay.
Our cups are overfilled. We can no longer concede our feelings. Not anymore!
What we are about to say, has never been strange and we know the background of whence all of these unnecessary fights and a political clampdown on young people are coming from; Hon. Nuquay has been the key architect of division, witch hunt, disunity, hate messages, and creating animosity amongst young people in Margibi County instead of reconciling them.
Evidence to our claims points to the fact that the Honorable was or has been heard on several tapes preaching tribal politics and unscrupulously defending and willing to fight those who he perceived may not take legislative instruction from him, or become his stooges.
Where did we go wrong to believe our actions were guaranteed in the best interest of our people?
Is this our crime to do good?
Is this how he intends to pay us?
We refused to be used and abused this time! Let the message goes forth to Hon. Nuquay and his inner motive, this time, we will not take an inch of his weird political behavior. No way.....!
Under his dim-witted and disintegrated political maltreatment of the young people, he was heard referring to Margibians as “sugar ants” only because he enriched himself with ill-gotten wealth at the detriment of the downtrodden, poverty-stricken, and devastated masses. Furthermore, we have been vindicated by his unscrupulous attitude and evidence of some of the happenings in recent times.
Joseph Orlando Beyan as a national youth chair for his party (PUP) has now become his latest target after he has worked with all young people beyond political lines. This is a Young man who has committed himself to serving himself and the party with enthusiasm and inspiration; using his ability and resources to mitigate issues of young people.
It’s appalling that Hon Nuquay will choose to fight a young man of his party after serving him for all those years. Hon Nuquay has justified all of our claims and it’s now a glaring fact that he’s the real deal for Margibi's historical division and discrimination over the years.
The current Caucus can relate.
We are pondering as to who is even ill-advising or supporting the Senator in taking such decisions, most specifically one who has future political ambition-2029. Just as Hon. Nuquay has the propensity in affiliating with other political actors in the country, he should take into consideration that Stanley Cooper, Albert Benjamin Sonnie, Amb Joseph Orlando Beyan, and others have the right in doing the same.
National Youth Leader of a political party and citizens of Margibi has all rights to meet with all county officials despite politics. Of recent, we have learned that Hon Nuquay is so much afraid of Hon Ivar Jones and this uneasiness has further been turned into hate which got exacerbated when Amb Joseph Orlando Beyan and Albert Benjamin Sonnie met with Hon Jones to discuss reconciling the county regardless of political differences, an idea that promotes the “One Margibi Agenda”.
We are testimonials that it was Joseph Orlando Beyan, Albert Sonnie, and Stanley Cooper who were very instrumental in settling the differences between Hon Nuquay and Hon Gahr after the then-2017 electioneering year.
Since the guys meeting with Hon Jones and posting pictorials on their personal pages, Hon Nuquay has been so vindictive and divisive that; has chosen to go after the brothers by sending his thugs to attack and denigrate them. It can be recalled that Hon Nuquay was heard on tape threatening the life of an Office staffer of Hon Jones (Geovannie Brooks). In that tape back in 2020, he was overheard saying that he will send people to go after Mr. Brooks. Today as part of his usual antics has again chosen to send his thugs after these finest sons of the soil only because they met with one of his biggest rivals.
With amusement, Hon. Nuquay is again caught on tape this time around threatening a seating Lawmaker and her family of District #3, “I will deal with them”, “I will play with them”, that friskiness they on”; what a retrospect of 2017, “If even heaven open, I will go after them”
Can you see what people said about Hon Nuquay back then and today, he’s proving them right.
In Hon. Nuquay world, there is no team but a one-man accomplisher, this is in all of his presentations, “I did this, I did that, I built this, and I bought this”
As evidence of the facts, we should retrospect on what he did to Rep. Ben Fofana, Stephen Kai, and many others. He didn't stop there but fought members of his party (PUP) in Margibi County on tribal sentiment instead of competence.
Not just that, but again fighting Hon. Attoh-Wreh after her husband, Hon. Prince Anything Wreh supported him while serving strategic positions on his campaign team that brought him to power after being flogged in 2017.
Is Hon Nuquay telling us that all his supporters or loyalists are his houseboys? Is he telling us now that his divisive agenda is back on track? These questions need answers from the Senator who is after his loyalists only because of mere photos posted.
Additionally, the previous 2017 Elections should have sent a strong signal to the Senator after he made all those denigrating statements and it hunted him in return.
In all fairness, these brothers have been committed to the struggles in making Hon. Nuquay who he is currently and has been loyal beyond all reasonable doubts. They have stood the test of time and have provided their expertise in helping Hon. Emmanuel Nuquay achieves his developmental purposes in Margibi County. Is this how he's paying them back? Wow!! Fighting these very people that fought to rebrand and present you to the people of Margibi.
Finally, we won't allow continuous division and unnecessary fights among Young Margibians when we are still around. This is getting off-hands and we seriously frowned on it to the core and will do all to protect our own. Margibi is not Sen. Nuquay's personal property to keep fighting everyone for his political gains. We too have our potential and will join ranks with our young generation in making sure this will not be repeated. Hon. Nuquay has debased and parlayed the honor of the elder (Senatorial) seat of our county thereby resulting in monumental disappointment, frustration, and disenchantment among his supporters and colleagues.
We must speak the truth to our mothers, sisters, and fathers to awaken their minds, no matter the financial envelope they know that the gift from a wicked man is a trap.
Therefore, we are posted at the barricade and will always make known our positions, on any issue that has the propensity to undermine the peace, stability, and progress of our beloved Margibi County. We remain committed to fighting and resisting division, discrimination, injustices, and all forms of indigestion melted against the determined people of Margibi County that are so yarning for oneness, peace, unity, and coherence.
For his presidential bid in 2029, we will simply refer to it as history. Let the message goes forth one Margibi, one people irrespective of our political beliefs, we are bound to protect this agenda, our county desires better.
We are more than serious and will not sit anymore and allow Hon. Nuquay is proud of himself and thinks he’s a demigod. We will stop him. We are determining to.
Issued on this 27th Day of August 2022
Long live Margibi County!
Long Live the Youth of Margibi County!
