Liberia: Representative Candidates Warned

The Unity Party (UP) representative candidate in district #15 Montserrado County, Radcliff Williams has warned supporters of other political parties' representative candidates to desist from tearing down other candidates' electoral materials.

He further that if such act continues, it could lead to another form of electoral violence in the country. Making the assertion recently in an interview with this paper at his Logan Town office on the Bushrod Island, Williams vowed to redeem the district from the current leadership of Representative Adolph Akwe Lawrence.

He stated that if elected in the pending October 10, 2017 elections the district development is going to be high on his agenda. According to him, for the years now, the district has been underrepresented at the level of the Lower House.

William further indicated that it is because of the passion for the district it's the reason he is into the representative race. "The citizens of the district deserve good living standards like others in any civilized society," he added.

Candidate Williams maintained that he is not going to the House of Representatives for enrichment and to look down on others. He indicated that the time has come for the people of district #15 to be redeemed from the "current style of ugly leadership".

Williams also promised to be a people centered leader because he is going to work in their interest. "If elected my people will be informed on a regular basis about developments at the House of Representatives," he said.

He named healthcare, education, and security amongst others that are going to be highly considered on his agenda. "Education, healthcare, peace and security are vital to the growth and development of any nation," he maintained.

Williams used the occasion to appeal to the electorate to shine their eyes and vote for him for more development to come in the district. He also reminded them about the vital role they have to play in the development of the district and Liberia at large.

"Liberia is the only nation that we have among the comity of nations, so, we should get engage into positive ventures that could bring pride to the country," he stressed.

Williams further indicated that he also has constructed toilets, Caldwell Bridge, provided education to kids, community engagements and sports among others.
