Locking Western Region Down -UP Seals Cape Mt., Bomi, Gbarpolu Support

MONROVIA: As the clock ticks closer to the holding of the October 10, 2023 presidential and general elections, the Unity Party is leaving no stones unturned in increasing its support bases, as elders and influential opinion leaders of Grand Cape Mount, Bomi and Gparpolu turned out en masse over the weekend to pledge their support to the candidacy of former Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai and his Rescue Team.

Making the disclosure Monday, June 5, 2023, the Unity Party in a press release said the event occurred over the weekend in Western Liberia when the three counties of Bomi, Gbarpulo and Cape Mount sent members of their Leadership Councils to meet with the former Vice President at his home in Tubmanburg to pledge their support to him in the 2023 presidential election slated for October 10.

Among influential opinion leaders of the western belt were former House Speaker Alex Tyler from Bomi, former Senator Sando Johnson from Bomi, and former Senate Pro Tempore Armah Zolu Jallah of Gbarpolu, who were also in attendance, amongst several senior citizens and former Government officials from the three counties.

The three counties through their leadership councils pledged their unflinching support to JNB for the presidency come October 10 this year.

Former Second Lady and Wife of ex-Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai, Mrs. Kartumu Y. Boakai, also a daughter of Bomi County, was in attendance.

It can be recalled that former Gbarpolu County Senator Armah Jallah recently heaped praises on Ambassador Boakai’s vision and determination, stating that the Unity Party Standard Bearer has what it takes to drive Liberia forward and bring about much-needed development. Mr. Jallah further expressed his confidence in Boakai’s leadership abilities, citing his impeccable public record as evidence of his competence.

Former House Speaker Alex Tyler for his part recently resigned from his position as the Political Leader of the Liberia People Democratic Party, a constituent member of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change.

Tyler’s resignation from the party he founded set the stage for his recent endorsement of Ambassador Boakai and his Rescue Team in Tubmanburg.
