Making his endorsement statement, the Chairman of JWP Mr. Kalilu Jalloh said that there is no better candidate who can transform Liberia from poverty to prosperity except Senator Weah. “Senator Weah growing in a poor community knows exactly how one feels to be poor. During the war, he risked his life to talk to warring factions to see need for peace which help greatly in restoring peace in this country”, he said. Confirming the commitment of Fula’s support to Weah, the National Fula Governor Hassim Gaye said that Fulas are not hypocrites as they have always been identified to be loyal CDCians. Governor Gaye craved the indulgence of Senator Weah to do more when come to power in empowering the educational systems, and immigration laws in the country. Giving his appreciation remarks in a Fula costume given as a gift to him, Standard Bearer George M. Osman Weah said that the endorsement is a worthy decision coming from true patriots with the burning desire for a true leader. “I keep saying that my hands are clean and Liberians are ready for change. I continue to get massive endorsements every day since the declaration of campaign period”, he said. Standard Bearer Weah admonished the youth that this is their time to take the country forward and their words must be supported by actions in the October poll. Senator Weah said that growing up in a Muslim community, he believes that all Liberian are equal irrespective of party affiliations, tribal sentiment or religious belief. Senator Weah continued to refer to the ruling Unity Party Standard Bearer as a man that is not part of the future of Liberia and his days in politics are over. “I have never been known as a failure, while Boakai maintains a record of dismissal for abysmal performance throughout his life. I vow to lay my life for the betterment of Liberia and all I need is your vote in the coming elections”, he concurred.
