For his part, Bomi County Senator, Edwin Snowe has these words to say, “The people of Bomi County most especially the women, are sincere. The women of Bomi, when they say they are with you, just go and sleep because they will not let you down.”
“Don’t take them for granted. They need empowerment. These women are women of substance that is why I am here with them today. I tested them in 2017, I tested them in 2020, and they delivered.
“So, today as you have come here to make Bomi County your first county to begin your counties tour, you should make Bomi the first county for women empowerment. If you pay attention to our women they will deliver,” the Bomi County Senator added.
