Be guided by God and conscience

-Ellen tells electorate 

As Liberians go to elections on Tuesday, 10 October, former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf urges voters to be guided by God and conscience, as they examine performance records and potentials of those who seek their votes.

She says all Liberians now have the opportunity to ensure through their votes that growth and inclusive development can be sustained in the country by electing candidates that have the capacity to ensure a better Liberia and Africa.

In a statement released here Thursday, October 5, midway to Election Day, the former, who led Liberia for 12 years as the first elected female President on the Continent, said as Liberians approach another historic event in exercising  their Constitutional right of choice, she considers it a duty to join others in adding her voice for a smooth electoral process.

“I pray that you choose those who can and will ensure a Better Liberia and the Africa That We Want”, she says.

Mrs. Sirleaf notes that Liberia has been blessed by God with an endowment which provides the means for development.

“We have made progress in the achievement of development goals, but some have, from time-to-time, undermined progress in that achievement”, she adds.

However, she notes that through it all, Peace Has Been the Enabler, reciting in the Vai vernacular, “Komu-moi lor nei awa mu k nyain”.

“I, ​​therefore, thank all citizens, individuals and groups, for the contribution made to National peace that has made us proud of the 20 consecutive years of peace. I also thank the large number of continental, international and local organizations that will serve as Elections Observer ensuring that our electoral processes meet international standards.”

May you be guided by God and conscience, as you examine the performance record and the potential of those who seek your vote. I pray that you choose those who can and will ensure a Better Liberia and the Africa That We Want.
