A representative aspirant in next year’s general and presidential elections has accused incumbent District Eight Representative Acarus Gray of failing to unite the people of the district. Mr. Varfee Quaye said from the past leadership of Mr. Rufus Neville to Representative Gray, uniting the district remains elusive, pointing out that since his incumbency, the district Representative has not been able to unite the people of the district.
Speaking yesterday when a non-governmental organization – Anti-Crime Activist, Petitioned him to contest the seat in 2017, Mr. Quaye indicated that neither the incumbent nor anyone else was a threat to him or his desire to united the district as a way of fast-tracking developments, stressing that this is time for the transformation of the lives of citizens despite the district’s mismanagement and the representative’s inability to rub it.
He claimed that the library built by Montserrado County Superintendent Florence Brandy has been closed reason best known to the Representative, urging him to reopen the facility within two months.
He threatened court action against Gray upon failure to ensure the reopening of the library.
Reading the petition on behalf of the Anti-Crime Activist, the Executive Director, E.K. Nana Lartey, cautioned presidential and legislative aspirants against visioning the elections as ventures to accumulate wealth at the expense of the poverty-stricken people. He said their petition was against the backdrop of Mr. Quaye’s uprightness as far as the district’s interest was concerned, describing him as a accessible law-abiding citizen.
