first_imgAs the death rate of the deadly Ebola is increasing in the country, a prominent citizen of Bomi County has called on her kinsmen not to lose hope in the face of the spread of the disease.“Don’t lose hope in the face of this Ebola crisis which is claiming the lives of our people in the country.  What we need to do now as citizens is to follow the Ministry of Health preventive measures and put aside the traditional practices of burying dead bodies,” Cllr.  Frances Johnson Allison, who is also former head of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) advised her people.She made the call over the weekend when she visited the McDonald Street office of the Daily Observer, after she identified with several quarantined family members in the county.   Cllr. Allison is also a senatorial aspirant of Bomi County. She said her donation followed after she learnt that there is growing number of Ebola death cases in her native homeland.“As a prominent citizen of this county, it’s important to identify with my people in this difficult period in the history of the country, we don’t need to sit down and allow government alone to fight the Ebola disease,” she added.As part of her visit in the county, Cllr. Allison also donated several items, including bags of rice, oil, buckets detergent soap, and some sanitary materials to Ebola survivals, marketers, Motorcyclists among others.She put the value of the items to a little over US$500.According to her, if Liberians were to unite themselves and exercise hope, they would shortly defeat the deadly virus from their country.“We can use this crisis to stand and work together for the betterment of our dearly country, Liberia that is bleeding from this ugly disease,” she admonished.“You are aware that we have suffered from the prolonged civil war that has plunged our country into total mess. It is now time for us to hold together to fight and defend it from falling deeply into destruction,” Cllr. Allison further added.Although not a political campaign period for now as election is suspended, Cllr. Allison’s picture was on every package she presented to people of Bomi to get people perhaps remember her when the senatorial election which she intends to contest comes.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
