UPP candidate makes wide promises

Rev. Musu Dukuly Ketter, candidate for Montserrado County electoral district #15 is promising to construct a hospital in the district, if elected, without explaning how she intends to achive this.

In an interview with The New Dawn recently at her office in Logan Town on Busrod Island, Rev. Ketter says the dream is to address the wave of death among pregnant women going to gave birth in the disrict, particularly those with emergency cases due to lack of referal medical facility.
The female clergy discloses that she has begun lobbing with international partners and citizens of the district residing in the United States of America (U.S.A.) who have given assurance to support the hospital project.

Vying on the ticket of the opposition United People’s Party or UPP, Rev. Ketter says she is going to the Liberian Legislature to make sure less fortunate citizens and street children are provided shelter, better health care and education, because they are future leaders.

According to her, she would create a department of sanitation within the district to address the hyiegenic needs of residents, including flooding during downpour.The woman of God also promises to construct low income housing units across district#15 to address the housing problem being experienced by inhabitants, most of whom dwell in makeshift zinc shack.

The United People’s Party was established in the early 80s by a group of Liberians who branded themselves as progressives led by its founding father, the late Gabriel Baccus Matthews.

Its current standard bearer is businessman Mcdonald Wento, who is vying for the presidency along with nearly 20 candidates and over 800 seeking seats in the House of Representatives. Hearalded for its fight for multiparty democracy in Liberia, the UPP is yet to asccend to state leadership.  By Emmanuel Mondaye
