Ahead of the October 2020 senatorial elections, Rep. Samuel G. Kogar of Nimba’s fifth district is calling on fellow Nimbaians to look beyond rhetoric and “empty” campaign promises to carefully scrutinize the records and individual lives of contenders.
The 2020 senatorial elections are still over a year away, but some candidates are already mobilizing their resources in preparation to enter the race.
