Addressing scores of supporters in Paynesville at a Town Hall meeting during the week, Cummings said something seriously needs to be done to address the plight of Liberia’s street children and criminals.
He explained that upon his ascendency as president following the pending general and presidential elections, the population that is now referred to as “Zogos” will be key players in the development of Liberia.
“Zogos will be different and better through the creation of jobs, skills transfer and other positive engagements,” he added.
The problems of the country, Cumming said, are difficult and complicated but can be handled not just in a moment but through a process that requires time.
The ANC political leader mentioned further that he has the integrity and requisite training to transform and effect change in the country, especially with the level of experiences he has had.
In addition, Cummings noted that things are very complicated in the country. He said processes need to be made simplified for the common understanding of the people in order to have a complete positive impact.
“If you simplify things it is very easy to catch people stealing than when it is complicated,” Cumming noted, making specific reference to the introduction of standardized custom fees for containers and goods arriving in Liberia through the Free Port of Monrovia, a system he said could eliminate theft and bribery.
Meanwhile, Cummings has added his voice to the many other voices in support of dual citizenship.
He sees the issue of dual citizenship as another means to develop the country.
He further assured his supporters and the general populace to get the best out of his leadership if elected as president during the upcoming election.
“With the attitude of Liberians looking up to one person to bring about change, we will not change the country, all of us have to work hard to change Liberia,” he added.
