The candidate of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) in the senatorial by-election, Madam Paulita CC Wie, says Montserrado County is no go zone for the opposition candidates during the ensuing July 8, 2019 election. The CDC senatorial candidate reechoes the claimed by President George Weah that Montserrado County and District #15 are strongholds or the ruling party.
Madam Wie made the statement at an endorsement ceremony of her candidacy by widows of the Army Forces of Liberia (AFL) at the head offices of the widows where the candidate donated L$50 to the widows and promised to renovate their offices.
Madam Wie reminded the Liberian people that the society needs leaders who will come to their rescue when they are in need, and not leaders that will only come around during election and leave after the election when they are not successful.
She implored Liberians to vote during these elections candidates who understand the welfare of the country, and asked them to stand by candidates who know what it is to go bed without food. Madam Wie indicated, this is because when they get there they will pay attention to you because they were there before and they know what it is.
At the same time the spokesperson for the AFL widows, Madam Musu Kermu urged President George M. Weah not to respond to critics, and rather be focus as they are 100% in support of the CDC-led government.
Madam Kermu further said going forward, candidates of the CDC are bound for victory because of votes they would take from some categories of electorates.
She named first time voters who like George Weah and did not have the chance to vote; and also mentioned others people who did not vote for the CDC but would vote for the ruling party now because of progress it has made.
The AFL widows’ spokesperson then added that they will not listen to any politician that will come around to convince them because they have made up their minds to support the CDC.
