The ANC rally at the David Kuyon Sports Stadium
As the electoral battle for Bong County continues, those related to county who are running mates to presidential candidates are showcasing their popularity to their political leaders ahead of the October 10, elections.
On Saturday August 12, the Alternative National Congress (ANC) of Alexander B. Cummings held a campaign rally in the Crossroads City of Gbarnga at the David Kuyon Sports Stadium in the Millionaire Quarter.
The stadium witnessed a sizable crowd, but without the presence of any of the traditional chiefs including the county’s opinion leaders.
The program, which would have commenced at noon, was delayed for three hours as the ANC’s local officials tried to pull more crowds for the event.
Taking the stage, Mr. Cummings told his supporters that under during the ANC administration’s, first 100 days in office, the Bong County Technical College (BCTC) will be reopened to the public with all facilities installed.
The BCTC was established by Act of legislation in 2008 as a means to strengthen government’s effort to provide higher education for its citizens.
He told supporters that if they elect him president, his administration will protect the natural resources from leaving the country to ensure that the country is connected by roads, which Cummings believes are important to the country’s development.
Sulunteh had earlier informed supporters that the ANC is for change, noting, “It is time to vote Unity Party (UP) out and usher in the ANC, your hope, your future.”
Bong County has two vice presidential candidates in the upcoming elections-Senator Howard Taylor of George Weah’s Coalition for Democratic Change, and Sulunteh of Cummings’ ANC.
