A student activist Teah Doe Teah, warns Liberians not to elect people he describes as “greedy politicians” who don’t have the country and its people at heart.
Speaking to reporters in Paynesville City outside Monrovia, he further cautions that Liberians should be very mindful in how they go about casting their ballots to selecting the next senator and representative to fill vacant seats in Montserrado County.
The National Elections Commission (NEC) is expected to conduct Senatorial and Representative By-elections in Montserrado on 2 July. The pending polls are the result of the death of Senator Geraldine Doe-Sherif and Representative Adolph A. Lawrence, respectively.
Teah notes that the two vacant positions which belong to Montserrado County require the election of “grassroots Liberians” who have been in the vanguard of promoting development in the county.
According to him, the seats are very much important to the people of Montserrado County, so would-be candidates should be people with good political standing with the people.
He says the electorate of Montserrado should not permit themselves to be bought or induce with money to making wrong decision that would deny their county and district development.
He observes that politicians are coming with empty campaign promises and bunch of lies intended to rob the people of their votes.
He vows to vigorously campaign against aspirants who he notes, lack basic potential and political knowhow in bringing development to the people of Montserrado. Editing by Jonathan Browne
