The head of the youth league of the Movement for Progressive Change says MPC Standard Bearer Simeon Freeman, a business entrepreneur, is suited for the Presidency to take Liberian to another level.
Speaking at the party headquarters on Tuesday, 8 August in Monrovia during an endorsement program, Father Blade says Mr. Freeman has provided employment for so many young people through his water company, Digital Satellite Television (DStv) office and other jobs thru his initiatives.
“In this light, we will campaign from door to door, house to house to make sure that Mr. Freeman gets elected as President”, he vows.According to him, if the MPC Standard Bearer is elected as President in October, he will create more job opportunities across the country especially, for the youths, who are jobless.
Mr. Blade says the youth league of the party believes in Mr. Freeman’s vision for Liberia, stressing that he can be trusted with Liberia because of his service records to the Liberian people. “It is time for the Ellen-led government to leave power; we need a new government and we cannot give this country to Joseph Boakai because he is part of this same government that has failed us; 12 years, he was unable to help for the development of this country, this country cannot be given to Joseph Boakai because the 12 years he serves as Vice President was a waste.”
He says the youth league endorses the candidacy of Mr. Simeon Freeman, and they are ready to campaign in making sure he wins the Presidency because he is the best candidate in the race to represent the people of Liberia.
Until the impending elections, Mr. Freeman, who hails from the costal County, Grand Bassa, is unknown in Liberian politics. He has lived his left in the private sector, engaged in business.
