Lamin Vonjo Ngobeh, the parliamentary aspirant for the People’s Movement for Democratic Change (PMDC) in Kailahun district, has been trekking during his campaign trips to sail his party through in Constituency One, Luawa Chiefdom.
He is frequently seen trekking from village to village, explaining his party’s manifesto in places like Kpombali, Gbella, Mano Sewa Sewallu, Morfindor and Baoma.
To sway potential voters, he usually asks his supporters to assist farmers on their farms whenever he pays them visits. Asked why he had decided to trek when he had a car, Mr Vonjo Ngobeh told our reporter that he was using the traditional foot campaign method inorder to take the party to the door steps of the most vulnerable communities.
The PMDC aspirant revealed that his party had intentions to improve the road network in the country, including feeder roads, so that agricultural produce would no longer perish in the farms.
He described his foot campaign as “not to convince the electorate to vote the PMDC into office but to further assess the felt needs of the people for possible remedy”.
However, some of his political opponents have described his strategy as “due to lack of funds”.
