The Daffiama-Bussie- Issa member of Parliament, Hon Sebastian Sandaare yesterday, 14th May, 2019 visited party supporters in Issa and Kojokperi zones. The visit was a continua toon of his engagements with party supporters in the constituency over the gruesome murder of the constituency Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Mr. Richard Puolabong.
The Member of Parliament earlier this week visited Daffiama, Bussie and Fian zone.
He appealed to party supporters who are overly devastated and shocked over the infamous incident, to keep calm as investigation is being done by the appropriate authority to possibly arrest the perpetrators of that heinous act.
The Member of Parliament lamented over the increasing levels of insecurity in the country and admonished the NDC supporters and all constituents to take very good care of themselves. He mentioned ” we all have been hearing and reading about the insecurity in this country, we have heard of murder cases but I least expected that such issues of murder would ever happen in this constituency. You must be careful of your own security.”
The Daffiama-Bussie-Issa member of Parliament again urged the party supporters not to be discouraged from working assiduously for the NDC in the constituency and that the only way the soul of Chairman Puolobong would rest well is when party executives and supporters finish what he (Chairman) left unfinished, which was to ensure that the NDC wins the 2020 elections in the constituency.
He reiterated his commitment to giving a very befitting burial to the late chairman.
Other dignitaries who were at the function: the former District Chief Executive, Hon Fedelis Zumapkee, Constituency Secretary, James Wor, the Vice Constituency Chairman, Muoh Samba and many other constituency executives all urged members to remain calm and use the opportunity to amend any differences to build a solid team for victory.
