The former Senator of Grand Kru County Cletus Wotorson has been the latest authority to join the band wagon of those endorsing the Vice President and Standard Bearer of the ruling Unity Party, Joseph Boakai.
Pledging his unflinching support at an endorsement ceremony held in Monrovia, former Senator Wotorson said that he admired the bold and courageous steps taken by the young and promising political force, Hon. Augustine Ngafuan, who was the first to start the endorsement of Joseph Boakai. Mr. Wotorson said, “It would be remiss of me not to recognize the defiant and bold actions of those members of the 53rd National Legislature who eschewed the conspiratorial whispers of Liberian politics and paradoxes! They DID THE RIGHT THING: ENDORSE THE SPECIAL ONE!” Continuing, Wortoson noted, “It would be equally unpardonable not to pay homage to the courage, the political wisdom of citizens, and/or groups of citizens, throughout the country who see reasons to validate the best political decision.” The former Senator said that as a man with 60 years of working experience in Liberia, he sees himself as an elderly retired statesman; someone who brings a wealth of forethought, and cannot sit by while the country is yearning for direction, wisdom and honest thoughtful, political guidance at this critical time of a political transformation. “This is a transformation period that begs for integrity, humility and reconciliatory values. It is a national call and a duty for posterity,” he said. Senator Wotorson said that for many years, he has been opportune to serve Amb. Boakai as the Pro Tempore of the Liberian Senate, where he scrupulously observed the Ambassador at very close range. “I am not only convinced, but believe that our calm, calculative, sober, smart and obtrusively religious man of interest has the political gravitas, appropriately adorned by his bone-deep love of mother Liberia, particularly at this cross road of uncertainty in our country’s struggle to nurture its fragile and nascent democratic values,” he said. Mr. Wotorson said that Liberians are at the cross road in 2017, and should make good use of October 10 not to elect inexperienced people that will delude the youths with promises that will not see the light of day; but elect someone like Boakai who is developmental oriented.
