MONROVIA: Tuesday, October 22, 2019 – A prominent figure in the National Democratic Coalition (NDC) Think Tank has offered to lead the NDC social services program in the area of public health beginning November 2019. The agreement was reached in the NDC strategic leadership meeting on Friday, October 18, 2019. Under the said agreement, the NDC in collaboration with the Trokon Glay Community Clinic will undertake free health screening and medical diagnosis drive from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. on every Saturday at the NDC headquarters in Saye Town, Monrovia. The NCD plan is to later extend the health check drive, on a rotational basis, to other communities and counties. In addition, the NDC, in collaboration with the Trokon Glay College of Public Health and Social Justice will offer CPR/First Aid and AED 3 Day Training and Certifications.
Trokon Glay is a young Liberian entrepreneur who is practically providing free services in the areas of education, health, water, and sanitation in Lower and upper Margibi County as well as other parts of Liberia. Trokon runs clinics, a college, and driving schools in lower and upper Margibi County. Together with other leading figures in the NDC such as Emmanuel Daykeah of Grand Bassa County, Trokon is among the promising young Liberians who are energizing the NDC with people-centered approaches to national political work.
Trokon is Founder and Director of the Trokon Glay College of Public Health and Social Justice, the Director of the Trokon Glay Community Clinic Inc. Among others, the young Liberian Philanthropist studied Humanitarian Response to Disaster and Conflict at Harvard University and also Disaster and Emergency Management at the Emergency Management Institute in the United States of America, respectively. Historically, some of the strengths of the NDC (and its constituent parties) are found in human resource development, educational services, and health care delivery.
According to the office of the NDC National Chairman, Prof. Alaric Tokpa, the traditional role of an opposition political party or coalition is to compete for control of government and proceed to mobilize and use state resources for the public good. However, times are changing, he said, and that the NDC will continue to develop strategies and tactics in accordance with changing realities. He therefore asserted that the NDC will continue to support and promote programs and projects in the services of needy Liberians.
