Liberty Party Standard Bearer appears to be doing everything possible to win the hearts of Liberians in his quest for the country's highest seat.
Cllr. Charles Brumskine, who claims to love Liberia, has disclosed that he will not attend the United Nations General Assembly if the needs of the people especially in rural areas are demanding.
Speaking Wednesday when he signed the Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Compact at his party headquarters in Congo Town, Cllr. Brumskine said he would use money intended to attend the UN General Assembly to construct hand pumps across Liberia.
The Liberty Party flag bearer said it is important to provide basic social services to the people, rather than traveling abroad for international conferences.
Cllr. Brumskine said his Foreign Minister or Liberia's Ambassador to the United Nations can better represent him at the General Assembly.
"If I suppose to use US$25,000 to travel to the General Assembly, I'll use that to build more hand pumps in the rural parts of Liberia. Our people need safe drinking water," he stressed.
He said if elected, in two years, safe drinking water will be available in every parts of Liberia. The astute Liberian lawyer said his administration will prioritize things that concern the general wellbeing of the people rather than a select few.
He said it is unfortunate to see individuals in leadership abandoning those who struggled with them.
Cllr. Brumskine committed Liberty Party to WASH Compact and assured of his personal support.
Earlier, Patience Zayzay, WASH Policy Officer, said the sector has been under funded over the years.
Miss Zayzay noted that the compact is intended for political parties that are government in waiting to commit themselves to supporting the sector.
