According to Representative Julie F. Wiah, members from all sectors in District #2 in Lofa County have asked her to inform the ruling party about their support for the Vice President.
She made the disclosure yesterday at the Capitol Building during a press conference where she termed the election as a historic one that will determine whether or not Liberia will keep making progress as a nation.
“Let me use this important occasion to announce that I am seeking re-election come October as an Independent Candidate. As you may know, I ran and won in the 2015 by-election independently devoid of any political affiliation. Before my election in 2015, I built a relationship with the people of District # 2 that crossed all political, religious and social boundaries. I am so blessed that until now, having been in office for one year seventh months, I still enjoy the trust and confidence of my people. This has led to overwhelming endorsements from all parts of the district since last year,” she said.
Representative Wiah said she and her people believe that Ambassador Boakai possesses the needed leadership abilities based upon his moral and technical qualities, as his 40 years of civil service demonstrates his commitment, dedication and passion towards the country.
She said, “We are convinced that he is an honest man. He has worked for everything he owns today. We believe that honesty is the main characteristic we should look for in our next leader, and this is something Ambassador Boakai has demonstrated over the years he has faithfully served this country”.
