Banks on the Supreme Court Bench, following his retirement for maximum age reasons.According to the group, known as ‘Youth United to Save Sinoe County’ (YOUSOC’), “Our decision is based on the fact that former Superintendent Romeo Quiah possesses the requisite experience, including qualifications, competence, moral standing, and the political will to effect the needed transformation and reconciliation that Sinoe County dearly needs.

Swen said.
“ As a true son of Sinoe and dedicated public servant who has served his County and Country diligently , Mr. Quiah’s service including various positions in government, private sector, agro-related and the civil society puts him above others that will later join the race for the Senate”, Mr. Swen said.
