A legislative candidate from the opposition party Movement for Economic Empowerment or MOVEE, claims here that he’s sponsoring 500 pupils for computer training program in 27 learning institutions across Montserrado County electoral district#5.
MOVEE representative candidate Benjamin Yele Wehye made the disclosure on Tuesday, 8 August in Joe Bar, Paynesville City outside Monrovia when he officially began touring various homes in the district to campaign.
Addressing hundreds of supporters and community dwellers, Mr. Wehye says the pupils are in final stages of their studies. He says the 500 beneficiaries are enrolled at the Faith International School of Technology in Paynesville, adding that a second next batch of 500 is currently being recruited.
The MOVEE candidate continues that for the first time in history the district could now boast of a modern palava hut allegedly valued over US$9,000.00 in Paynesville Police Academy Community dubbed “District 5 Intellectual Center.”
Mr. Wehye, who also boasts of operating the biggest private teacher training college in the country, explains that the college has branches in Montserrado, Grand Bassa, Bong, Margibi, Sinoe, Grand Kru and Maryland Counties with over 12,000 alumni, who are outside there, contributing to the country’s educational sector, while an additional 1,237 candidates are currently in training.
“The incumbent is asking us to give him another six years. This could at least be possible if he had initiated some projects, which is ongoing or perhaps introduced a significant bill in the legislature, which is currently being debated”, he says of district#5 incumbent Lawmaker Thomas Fallah.
Representative Fallah, who is seeking a third term, is a member of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) of Presidential hopeful, Senator George Weah.
