The office of Senator J. Emmanuel Nuquay has taken serious cognizance of “senseless wave of secret and criminal recordings and slanderous propaganda” permeating the airway of Margibi, as well as the political corridor of the Country.
The Office of Senator Nuguay in a statement issued on Monday, August 8, 2022 under the signature of the Secretary, Ackollie E. Nanakpallah revealed that during the December 8, 2020, midterm Senatorial Election, Mr. Giovanni Brooks, a then office staff in the Office of Margibi County Electoral District 2, Rep. Hon. Ivar Jones, recorded and doctored a conversation between him and Senator Nuquay, then a Senatorial Aspirant.
The office further pointed out that the 2020 decayed and doctored recording of Mr. Giovanni Brooks among other things falsely alleged that Senator Nuquay “was after his life” something peculiar to the DNA of the statesman.
The office described the fully package doctored recording as criminal under Chapter 19, Section 1, (a) and (b) of the Country’s Penal Law. At the same time, the office indicated that it was a chief campaign strategy allegedly employed by Representative Ivar Jones and his team in an effort to defaced and pillage the political reputation of the Senator Nuguay.
The statement mentioned that the sinister motive was to portray Senator Nuquay as a “wicked, desperate, and heinous man”, who is involved with witch-hunting youth of the county who do not agree with him on policy issues and should not be elected as Senator of Margibi County. “In essence, the conversation between Mr. Brooks and Senator Nuquay had its roots and premise upon forging a united front in the best interest of the people of Margibi County, but it was criminally recorded with different motives which were to misinform and cajole the public as well as spew invectives and calumnies on the reputable character of the statesman. But this style of campaign and Hon. Jones were overwhelmingly rejected by the people of Margibi on December 8, 2022 with Senator Nuquay getting almost 70% of the votes” the statement stated.
The Statement at the same time revealed that following a year of service as Senator, on August 3, 2022, Mr. Giovanni Brooks, the former accuser of Sen. James Emmanuel Nuquay, accompanied by hierarchy of the Margibi County Administration, visited Senator Nuquay’s Cooper Farm Residence and extended an apology for his actions during the 2020 senatorial Election.
Additionally, the office said, the Senator’s position had initially been that Mr. Brooks uses the same medium (Print and Electronic media) used at the time to spew invectives, misinterpret the truth, and rain derogatory statements on Senator Nuguay’s character. But, as a selfless statesman and a devoted Christian, the Senator took the courage and accepted Mr. Brook’s apology.
The office furthered registered that as the Country gradually approach the 2023 Elections, it has become obvious that the same campaign of criminally doctored recording and slanderous propaganda rejected by the people of Margibi during the 2020 Senatorial elections, has again resurfaced and this time the chief architect is said to be Mr. Freddie Zayzay–Chief of Office staff in the office of Hon. Ellen Attoh Wreh, Margibi County District # 3 lawmaker. In the sufficiently doctored recording, Senator Nuquay expressed his view on the trending political realities unfolding in districts 2 and 3. and that at no point in time in the conversation Senator Nuquay solicited support for any candidate.
The statement also highlights, that those accusing Senator Nuquay of introducing tribal politics are far from the reality as the candidates in districts 2 and 3 are from completely different tribal backgrounds.“County men and women, as we gear up for the 2023 general and Presidential elections, Senator Nuquay calls on all those wanting to lead to fearlessly and vigorously campaign on their Vision, general achievements, competence, deliverables, and above all contributions to the people of Margibi County, apart from exploiting the vulnerability of our youths to criminally record stakeholders and spread mischievous lies in the quest to gain political relevance” it stated.
Inconclusion, the Office of the Senator also use the medium to call on all Margibians regardless of which side of the coin to join forces in building the new Margibi, noting “A Margibi where national leaders will be revered but checkmated positively. It is also noteworthy to mention that the Senator had not and is not fighting any one; he believes in the free democratic enterprise where the people through regular elections will elect the leaders of their choice”.
