Weah promises middle class
Opposition Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) presidential candidate Sen. George Manneh Weah says if he is elected president this October, Liberians will live a middle class life and attend schools whether they have money or not.
“If we are given the opportunity to serve, Liberian kids will walk in mall to buy goods of their choice, our people will attend schools whether they have money or not, hospitals will be available for all,” Liberia’s former international soccer soccer icon – turned politician Sen. Weah said Sunday, 13 August while being honored by the Fula Community in Monrovia.
He says the only thing Liberians need to do during his administration is to work, noting that he will create the enabling environment for the young and old people to work. The Montserrado County Senator claims that during his administration kids here will have playing grounds, and that colleges and technical institutions will be built to provide easy learning terrain for students.
He promises that hospitals will be improved for all Liberians, and adds that for too long Liberians have lived below the poverty belt. Mr. Weah says his administration is concerned about the redemption of every Liberian, be it partisan or not.
He called on Liberians not to vote for ruling Unity Party (UP) presidential candidate Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai, and describes UP partisans as virus that continue to eat the fabrics of the country.
According to Weah, the 12 years of service given the UP in which Vice President Boakai is the second in command while he Weah serves as Senator are enough.He claims that it is for the Liberian people to elect him for better living condition, peace, fair share of the nation’s resources, middle class living condition, good health facilitates, better education and a reduced tax environment.
Reading a statement of endorsement and support for Weah by the Fula Community, Kalilu Jalloh said their support is based on the past track record of the Montserrado County lawmaker they say has served the country.
He added that the best option for the country that is enjoying peace and stability is to give power to someone who once served as United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, one serves as Liberia’s Peace Ambassador and a humanitarian.
He opposes electing someone who brought wars in the fighting for freedom and rampant corruption. Mr. Jalloh promises that the Fula Community will stand with the CDC in these elections and will ensure that the CDC takes state power in a smooth and democratic way.
