Executives and members of Monrovia-based Concern Students Movement of Liberia over the weekend unanimously endorsed the candidacy of a female politician, Cecelia Cuffy Brown to contest the ensuing mid-term senatorial election in Montserrado County.
The mid-term senatorial election is scheduled for October, but in Montserrado County, many persons including the incumbent Senator Joyce Musu Freeman Sumo, George Weah, among several persons have expressed interest to race for the lone senatorial seat.
According to the National Secretary of the Concern Students Movement of Liberia, Kesseley Q. Barzah, the students’ movement has keenly observed Madam Brown many contributions toward improving the lives of residents of the county.
“Madam Cuffy Brown has contributed significantly toward the growth and development of our beloved country through youth empowerment and the development of sanitation in the various communities as well as empowering women and children,” Barzah declared.
He said, by implementing such achievements, the students feel Madam Brown has therefore created a platform that gave birth to the establishment of the maritime beach cleaning-up campaign; an exercise that made a significance impact in bringing the New Kru Town and West Point beaches to level of cleanliness up to date.
Her actions, the students believe paved way for jobs for over 400 inhabitants of those communities, and also her recent advocacy on student endowment funds from the National Oil Company of Liberia’s benefits that is yet to come.
“The Students believe this is another welcoming development on the part of Madam Brown and therefore, we must encourage her to do more to transform our society.”
He recalled that it was through the stewardship of Madam Brown that the residents of New Kru Town recently received “abundance” of food from the United Nations Children’s Education Fund (UNICEF), which contributed towards saving the lives of the beneficiaries from starvation, among other several other contributions she made and continue to make.
