Rural teachers, supporters aim for ‘one round victory’
Unity Party (UP) partisans last Thursday held a mini rally and solidarity campaign in Foya District #1, with pledges and financial contributions to support the party’s strategy for a one round victory at the October 10 polls.
UP standard bearer Joseph Boakai lauded the determination of ordinary Liberians exhibited by their active involvement in the campaigns leading up to the elections.
Boakai urged UP supporters assembled in the Tamba Lamin Taylor Council Hall in Foya City to continue the momentum of their support and translate their commitment into votes on October 10. He urged his supporters to consider him and others on the bases of integrity, honesty, mature stewardship and leadership that have the nation and its people at heart.
“We have come to the 2017 presidential race with a wealth of experience, sound leadership ability and with the practical vision to move Liberia to another level,” he said. “I believe that with our past clean record, 42 years of sound and untainted public service, our nation can once again have concrete hope in our ability to deliver genuine development for all citizens.”
Earlier, District #2 representative candidate Julie Weah called on UP partisans to wake up and get on the political bandwagon to ensure victory on October 10. On behalf of District #2, UP partisans of Vahun district pledged L$100,000 for the UP solidarity campaign. “Uncle Joe, we are behind, in front of and beside you in this particular political battle and we are committed to the cause of your victory,” Madam Weah assured.
She, however, stressed the need for the partisans of the two districts to hold together to ensure a resounding victory in October.
In their statement, Rural Teachers for the Election of Joseph Nyuma Boakai (RTEJNB) pledged their support to mobilize hundreds of eligible voters for the party. The teachers pointed out that as professional Liberians that have been in the vanguard of producing personalities of all kinds, they are prepared to remain steadfast, determined and supportive of UP’s aim for victory in October.
