A group of women under the banner “FASSO Women” has honored and gowned the Vision Bearer of the People’s Liberation Party (PLP), Dr. Daniel E. Cassell, for his countless numbers of contributions towards the improvement of the socio-economic, infrastructural developments and the improvement of the lives of Liberia and its citizens, with a call on Liberian politicians to desist from “lose talks and criticisms” and help find remedies to the aged-old problems in the society.

The women added that in the wake of severe hardship, extreme poverty, Covid019 outbreak and economic constraints confronting Liberians in their own country, the PLP of Dr. Cassell has been engaged into initiatives, including the distribution of food, medicines and others to hospitals, clinics and regular donations to scores of physically challenged and visually impaired citizens, among others.
They observed that the PLP remains the only political party in Liberia that continues to extend helping hands to needy citizens.

“Dr. Daniel E. Cassell we want to gown and honor you here today due to your hardwork and commitment to see our people leave from poverty; and our children who we called zogos from begging on the streets. You are not waiting to be President before you start to build roads, market building or do good for your people. The people say when your Christmas will be good, you will know from the eve”, a representative of the women group stated.
“You are the real talk and do because; when you say something you can do it. We will stand behind and support you to achieve your dream because we know that you will not be like the other people to forget about us when you get there”.
The PLP has been engaged into multiple ventures intended to better the living conditions and help address some of the mountainous challenges confronting Liberia and its citizens.
Sometimes ago, the party’s Vision Bearer constructed three bridges worth about US$200,000 in Laykay town and rehabilitated several farm-to-market roads in Margibi County.

More than 30 Liberians, including drivers, conductors and supervisors are employed with the Liberation Transportation Service.
The launch of the affordable transportation service by the PLP recently compelled the National Transit Authority (NTA)-the agency of the Liberian government responsible for transportation services, to reduce its transportation fares across the country.
In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, the PLP also launched a mobile clinic to ensure the provision of adequate healthcare delivery to citizens who cannot afford to foot the medical bills of them and their respective family members, loved ones, or friends at various public or private hospitals or clinics.

For his part, Dr. Cassell commended the women group but putting first the interest of their children and future generation over their personal aggrandizement.
He promised to go the extra mile in making impactful interventions and helping to find solutions to the mountainous of problems Liberia and its citizens continue to experience.
Dr. Cassell noted that he will not relent to share the little that God has blessed him with, along with the needy, destitute, neglected and abandoned Liberian citizens.
He vowed to be the lone advocate that will open the eyes of the Liberian people.
“We are into this not for ourselves, but for you who have been left by the way side, abandoned, used and abused for too long by politicians; downplayed and disrespected by those you elected to preserve over your country’s resources. I urge you today to join the liberation train and let’s take our country back from those greedy, failed and recycled politicians”.
