An aspirant for District Nine in Montserrado County, Atty. Miller Catakaw has admonished residents of the district not to allow themselves to be trucked by politicians during the 2017 legislative and presidential elections.
Aspirant Catakaw observed that trucking voters from one district to another has been a serious problem in Liberia, which must not be allowed during the pending elections. Already the National Elections Commission has banned the trucking of voters from one district to another or from another country to Liberia, and stressed that the trucking of people is forbidden. Atty. Catakaw encouraged the residents to make use of the upcoming voter registration process by registering beginning February. Speaking recently during the dedication of the Wroto Town Market which was constructed by the legislative aspirant, Catakaw also criticized what he termed as 'bad leadership' in the district. "We see the need for our people to sleep under electricity; we see the need to improve the living condition of our people; for too long, they have suffered from the hands of bad leadership," he said. He noted that the problem of the district over the years has been bad leadership thus making the district to be lagging behind relative to development and improvement in the lives of the people. "For me, I see leadership as a service to humanity, something that brings peace and every good leader should be able to inspire their people," he stated. For her part, the Superintendent of Wroto Town Market, Madam Victoria Sole, expressed delight over the dedication of the newly constructed market, saying it was the first time in the history of the district for an aspirant to undertake such a project. "We the women of this Community are very much happy today to receive this modern market building. The aspirant has proven himself beyond every reasonable doubt that he can adequately deliver this district from the hands of people that we once trusted," she added.
