Montserrado County District #2 Representative aspirant and longtime humanitarian, James A. Momo, has donated two sets of jersey and footballs to Peace Island and Amagashi Communities on the Somalia Drive as a fulfillment of a promise he made to the communities recently. The gesture was made through the Friends of Momo on Sunday, January 1, 2017 in Block A sports page and Peace Island football field respectively.
Making the presentation, the Chairman of Friends of Momo, Doe Romeo Sherman, said the donations were the Mr. Momo's way of demonstrating that he will live up to any promise he makes in his bid for the District's legislative seat. "Those days when politicians would make promises that they cannot keep are over. We are committed to keeping every promise. We are coming into this legislative race with untainted integrity and a clear vision aimed at advancing District #2, Montserrado," he told newsmen at the donation ceremony, adding that this was just a tip of the iceberg as regards programs and projects earmarked to be undertaken. For his part, the National Coordinator of the Friends of Momo, Philip Lombeh, said the sets of jersey was basically intended to assure residents of the District that Mr. Momo will keep whatever promise he makes. "There are 32 communities in District #2 and there is a planned tournament to be held in the areas. Nine communities have already benefited from tournaments and the winners received four sets of jersey as well as other prizes," Mr. Lombeh added. Receiving the items, the head of the Amagashi Community Soccer Team, Malacky Sheriff, praised the representative aspirant's fulfillment of his promise, noting that it speaks volume of the kind of person he is. He averred that the jersey and football donation was timely because the football team has been struggling to get football and a set of jersey that would enable them to be identified whenever they participate in any competition or tournament. "We are very excited about the donation. Mr. James Momo is a friend and we know him very well. He is someone to look to whenever everyone fails to help you out. We will use the donated jersey for its intended purpose," Mr. Sheriff stated.
