Don’t be trucked for 5 or 10 dollars
Montserrado District #: 1 Aspirant warns

Ahead of the 2023 elections, a representative aspirant in District #: 1, Montserrado County, Morris S. Barbay, Sr. is seriously warning citizens of the District and Liberians against trucking in the upcoming elections.
Mr. Barbay sounded the warning recently in Kingsville #:7 in an interview with our reporter at his political office while encouraging residents of the district to ascribe to the voter registration process.
He stated that people who allowed themselves to be trucked outside their districts to other districts where they have no business to register and vote but do so because they received 5 or 10 dollars don’t love their districts and counties.
He reminded citizens that their vote is one tool that empowers them to stay true to power, warning if they sell to another place or be trucked to another district or county, it means they don’t love their own district.
According to him, they should remain in their districts and let their voices to be heard.
He stated: “This is a clear warning to us because we saw it before, people were trucked. Today, they called them abandoned districts. We don’t want to call our district abandoned district anymore. Let us stay here in District #: 1, Montserrado County, please. Let’s register in our district. Please don’t let 5 dollars or 10 dollars truck you; tomorrow you will see the effect on you and your children.”
He wonders what benefit the district will get if the residents allow people to carry them to another location to register and vote.
He narrated that if people go out of the district, they create room for different people to decide for them.
