Liberia: Charles Breeze Eyeing Grand Gedeh Senatorial Seat

A former Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Mr. Charles Breeze, Jr. has vowed to contest the Senatorial post for Grand Gedeh County during the pending Special Election in 2014. Mr. Breeze told the INQUIRER yesterday that last year he was petitioned for the post by Grand Gedeans residing in the United States.

Mr. Breeze, a former Deputy Minister of Education said he intends to contest for the post during the pending election because Grand Gedeh needs people in the National Legislature that will speak on issues affecting the county mainly human and infrastructural development.

Mr. Breeze said the people of Grand Gedeh are not satisfied with the performance of those in the Legislature and that Grand Gedeh needs to make an effort to erase the stigma of the war.

He further said news that Grand Gedeh or Krahn people along with the people of Nimba are making palaver, such news was spread by the architects of the civil war because the war was designed to remove a Krahn man from power.

Mr. Breeze who was out of the country for ten years for personal and political reasons said he intends to run for the post as an independent candidate.

Mr. Breeze hails from Niao Clan in Grand Gedeh County and holds a Bachelor's Degree from the Teacher's College of the University of Liberia. He also holds a Masters Degree in English from the University of Akron, Akron, Ohio.
