It appears that Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor will support the Senatorial bid of Bong County Senator Henry Willie Yallah in the upcoming 2020 Senatorial elections in the County as informed sources revealed to The Analyst’s Bong County Correspondent, D. Patrick Tokpah that the relationship between the Yallah and Vice President Howard Taylor has even become closer than before, thus making the public to believe that the Senator might get support from the Vice President, but the lawmaker denies, saying that he is currently having political consultations ahead of the elections.
. Senator Yallah, who in the past, has been vocal on the Coalition for Democratic Change-led government, has in recent weeks seen in every corner of the County explaining the goodness of President George Weah and Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor.
Yallah is an Executive member of the People’s Unification Party (PUP), a political party that supported the Standard Bearer of the former governing Unity Party’s Joseph Nyumah Boakai in 2017 election.
According to the sources, Senator Henry Willie Yallah has intensified his friendship with the Vice President on a very good footing leading to the settlement of all alleged disputes between him and Liberia’s first female Vice President, which is unbelievable to many citizens.
According to our Bong County Correspondent, “Senator Yallah after the 2017 Presidential elections, was seen lambasting the citizens on why they voted the CDC-led government to power; but since he decided to solicit support from President Weah and Madam Taylor, his message has completely changed and he is now watering his political garden in every street and corners of Bong County thus singing songs of praises unto the government as thou he is the official spokesperson.
An insider who begged not to be named hinted that Senator Yallah frequently calls the Vice President and some top officials of the CDC government requesting for the CDC Party’s support on grounds of promoting the party’s agenda.
Our Sources referenced the impeachment of former Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh, as the beginning of Senator Yallah’s desire to stand in favor of officials of the CDC in an effort to gain relevance.
The Bong County Senator is one of those lawmakers that supported the impeachment bill of former Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh, which was masterminded by Representatives Acarous Moses Gray, Thomas Fallah and other stalwarts of the ruling party.
Our Sources said Senator Yallah was again seen on Wednesday 10th of July with Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor, after she had gone for what the VP’s Deputy Press Secretary Phillip Sangbah describes as private visit in the County.
According to the Insider, the visit of Vice President Howard-Taylor was not on the basis of privacy, rather she went to meet with District Coordinators of the National Patriotic Party (NPP) in regards to the second term bid of Senator Yallah.
Mr. Sangbah told our Bong County Correspondent that the Vice President was in the County on Wednesday, but said the visit was not political. Our source hinted us that Senator Yallah was spotted leaving the compound of the presidential palace briefly five minutes after the conclusion of NPP meeting held within the compound.
The ANALYST has observed that Senator Yallah is now eager to get the support of the Vice President because he has heard the citizens are calling on Deputy Speaker Prince Kermue Moye to contest the upcoming 2020 election.
Meanwhile, Bong County Senator Yallah has not responded to the concern from the public quarters that he is lobbying with the Vice President to get the support of CDC but said he is currently having political consultations ahead of the elections.
