Representative Cole explained that the CDC has built confidence and trust in Senator Yallah as people-center leader as such; there is a need for him to be given the second chance to serve the County at the Liberian Senate on the CDC ticket.

Additionally, the Coalition for Democratic Change Bong County Chairman said, Senator Yallah has played a major role in the completion of some development projects in the county since his election in 2011.

Representative Cole admitted that the full house of the CDC in Bong County with no regret endorsed Senator Yallah, describing him as the face of the CDC in the coming 2020 mid-term election in Bong County.

Representative Cole assured Senator Yallah that they will vigorously campaign for his re-election in the County.

In his acceptance speech, Senator Yallah thanked the CDC for endorsing and announcing his second term bid in the 2020 Senatorial elections.

The Bong County Senator promised to work tirelessly with the CDC government to better the living condition of citizens of Bong County and Liberia at large.

Senator Yallah told partisans of the CDC in Bong County not to support anyone who continues to play divisive role amongst leaders of the County because of their tyrannical leadership style.

He further said Bong County can only develop if leaders and the ordinary citizens are united under one umbrella.

At the ceremony, Senator Yallah appointed Representative Cole as his campaign chair, a responsibility the CDC Lawmaker accepted.
