Montserrado County district #12 candidate, Dr. George Bayan Samah garners support boost from residents of the district on his way to the October 10th poll. When asked why the support, residents claim that Dr. Samah is the right man to represent them because he is sent by God to lead them, while others say he is developmental-oriented, knows the plight of his people, provides scholarship and is a lovely man.
Marketers of Kesseley Boulevard, Gardnersville Super Market, and Chicken Soup Factory, respectively say they are supporting Dr. Samah because he heard their cry when they needed a place to sell.
According to them, he constructed a modern market building each in their areas, noting that when they were in need of a place to sell, no one came to their rescue except Samah.
Several students of the Liberia Christian Community College or LCCC, Bishop Tue Institute and Special Project High School, among others, pledge support to Dr. Samah, for donating flat screen computer to each institution.
Vying as an Independent Candidate, he has also constructed a bridge and road connecting Chicken Soup Factory, Steven Tolbert Estate and other adjacent communities.
