I have acknowledged several text messages and emails with trepidation’s of tribalism, I wish to use this medium to elucidate that my endorsement of Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine was never because he’s from Grand Bassa County, or a Bassa-man as claimed in some of your contentions. It was due to my personal optimal at that time, I individually sensed that he was the only knowledgeable candidate among others.
The people of Liberia will have to decide through the ballot boxes in future elections. Histories will show that I have been very critical about the drudgery of the Liberty Party, its Standard Bearer, and other political parties in Liberia. Your assertions were deceptive and disconcerting and should be daunt.
It is very inopportune that others will be spreading dishonesties that I have joined the Liberty Party without apprising the public. I have never join any political party in Liberia. I have affiliated with different political parties in Liberia. I am seriously pursuing to join one and will inform the public if I do so. It is very miserable to use tribal reasoning and singled me out without any validation. As a human being, I have the right to support any aspirant but I am asking that the people should have the liberty to decide who they want. In order to move Liberia to the next level, Liberia requires a president with high level of integrity, intellect, strong values and experience.
I wish to lament that the increasing level of poverty and corruption in Liberia, noting that unless these were properly tackled, it would be difficult for any meaningful development to be achieved in the country. Awkwardly, due to the politics of transition, we have virtually resorted to tribalism in a greater dimension. It is very unsuccessful, but I see myself as that central force of unity advocating for every county in Liberia. I love and accept everyone and everywhere in the country.
My prayer is for God to give us a president who would further unite the different counties in Liberia because without unity we cannot grow and without growth, one cannot say there is development. I wish to call on the National Government in Liberia to provide a level-playing field for all those interested in contesting in future elections, saying that only through free and fair election will competent persons emerge and serve the people of Liberia.
