Envoy Collins Pledges Support To VP Boakai

By Prince S. Nagbe

MONROVIA, November 8 (LINA) – Goodwill Ambassador Alpha Bird Collins has pledged his support to the presidential bid of Vice President Joseph Boakai.

Collins said VP Boakai is “the right person to steer the ship of affairs of the country” because he comes with a worth of experience as well as national and international connections which puts him in a better position to attract investors to the country.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Monrovia on Tuesday, the Montserrado County District # 10 Representative aspirant said his decision to support VP Boakai is also based on the spirit of continuity, adding, “I believe the Vice President will continue the government’s legacy.”

Envoy Collins believes that when elected in October 2017, the Vice President will ensure that the more than 10 years of peace Liberians now enjoy will be sustained, stressing, “He will unite the people of Liberia because he is a man of peace and one with a humble beginning.”

Collins said there are lots of developments that have taken place and are still ongoing across the country, especially considering where the country was in 2006 when the Unity Party government took over.

He therefore called on his supporters to back the presidential bid of Vice President Boakai for the betterment of their lives and Liberia and warned against voting people who will give them rice and money in exchange for their votes.  

Meanwhile, the Montserrado County Representative aspirant has said when elected, he will prioritize both formal and technical, vocational education, adding, “When the citizens are educated, they can use their education to better their lives.”

“For too long our citizens have been deprived a lot of things especially education by those who they entrusted to represent them; our people need to get nothing less than the best, that is why I have and will continue to prioritize education when elected,” Ambassador Collins emphasized.
