Maryland County Senator H. Dan Morias launches a SOS call for citizens in his county to elect Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai as Liberia’s next President.
Addressing cross section of citizens at the Park Intellectual Forum in Middle Sex community, Harper City recently, Senator Morias says Vice President Boakai has all that is required for the presidency and is the only person that can complete the developmental agenda of the governing Unity Party. Morias, a member of the National Patriotic Party or NPP, pledges his support for the presidential bid of Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai after the NPP formed a merger with the Congress for Democratic Change or CDC, and the Liberia People Democratic Party or LPDP.
The three-party marriage is now called the Coalition for Democratic Change or CDC headed by Montserrado County Senator George Weah as standard bearer and Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor as running mate. Senator Morias is among 21 senators, who endorsed VP Boakai’s presidential bid months ago at the Capitol Building in Monrovia.
His support for the Vice President Boakai led to his suspension from the NPP, but Morias says he regrets nothing and that his decision is of the majority that would positively transform Liberia after the Sirleaf Presidency.
He reminds youth of Maryland that if Liberia must developed and be like other countries in the sub-region, there is need to elect Vice President Boakai, who is development-oriented.He maintains that the Unity Party standard bearer understands government, thinks Liberia, loves Liberia, and wants to build Liberia.
He describes Boakai as a man with clean records, and argues that electing him the next President should not be construed as a third term for the Unity Party. Senator Morias continues that if Vice President Boakai were elected President of Liberia, it would mark his first term, because he never acted as President for the 12 years he serves as Vice President under Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
He promises to work closely with all auxiliaries groups in the county to ensure VP Boakai obtains 75 percent of the total votes in Maryland County. Maryland County with 84 voting precincts in three electoral districts, has a total of 57,244 registered voters.
The Maryland lawmaker declares the county currently locked down for the Boakai-Nuquay Ticket for the October polls and calls on other politicians not to waste their time in securing votes from the county, because Marylanders, particularly the traditional groups have unanimously agreed to elect VP Boakai next President of Liberia.
