Alexander B. Cummings of the opposition Alternative National Congress (ANC) has told other aspirants in the ensuing presidential elections to step aside and give him a chance to transform Liberia by raising the standard of living of the citizens.
Mr. Cummings made the statement recently after partisans from Grand Bassa County’s five electoral districts unanimously endorsed him in Buchanan on a white ballot as the party’s standard bearer.
The white ballot was casted on behalf of ANC delegates by county chairman Larry Z. Tunings and partisans Mary Slowo and John Gbeh.
Meanwhile, Mr. Cummings reiterated that he has no connection to and is not affected by the much-talked about Code of Conduct as is being widely circulated in the media.
He described the report as false, misleading and a fabrication intended by his would-be detractors to discredit his leadership capability to transform the country and better the lives of the citizens.
“In fact, I resigned from the Coca-Cola Company before I joined the Board of the Booker Washington Institution (BWI); they are not government entities, but private, and so the Code of Conduct cannot affect me,” Cummings explained.
He thanked the partisans for overwhelmingly endorsing him as ANC’s standard bearer to contest the October polls.
He assured the partisans of possessing the strong political will to transform the country.
Cummings then listed part of his platform to include the construction of good road network; the provision of quality education; a good healthcare delivery system; the creation of job opportunities; equal distribution of Liberia’s natural resources; the provision of uninterrupted electricity and safe drinking water; encouraging mechanized agriculture to stop hunger and produce more food for the sustainability of the state.
