Joseph H. Farkollie said the LP strong man has a record of failure starting from 1973, when he contested for student union Presidency under the then All Students Allied Party (ASAP) at the University of Liberia and woefully lost against the Students Unification Party (SUP).
Also in 1980, Cllr. Brumskine was defeated at the True Whig Party National convention as Youth Chairman by Ujoma Flemister in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.
Mr. Farkollie added that the former Senate Pro-tempore was handpicked by former President Charles G. Taylor in the proportional representation as Senator of Grand Bassa County and subsequently became Pro-tempore of the Liberian senate.
“In 2005, Brumskine came third, and 2011 came fourth. 2017 will not be an exception to see him going below 4th place”, he said
According to him, the Unity Party does not take the Liberty Party as a rival in the October 10, 2017 elections, because the flag bearer of the LP is a born loser and there is no need to focus on him.
Farkollie, a senior Adviser to the National Movement to Support Boakai (NAMBO) operations in Lofa County added that the Unity Party’s main opponent in these elections will be the Coalition for Democratic Change, but based on the momentum of massive endorsement from all walks of life, Vice President Boakai will win the election in the first round of elections.
“Most of these new political parties have not been tested except CDC. Judging from 2005, 2011 and 2014 statistically, CDC remains our main opponent, but we will win in the first round”, he said.
Mr. Farkollie added that with all the noise coming from the Liberty Party claiming of their financial power, they are still a mismatch to the UP which will have no time to waste on them as opponent.
Joseph Farkollie disclosed that with the 167,555 registered voters in Lofa County, the VP will win 99% based on the level of work done so far.
Accordingly, the UP’s stalwart urged those who endorsed their standard bearer to make it their responsibility to turn their endorsements into votes and do away with complacency.
The one time senatorial candidate stressed that it could harm the legacy of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf if she does not support the presidential bid of her Vice President.
