Monrovia – A representative candidate of Montserrado County District Number Two Nesco Allieu Wollo has expressed disappointment in the livelihood of Liberians, most especially in his contending district.
This, Wollo believes is as a result of bad leadership and that can only be addressed through a change that will better enhance their lives.
“What I can promise you is a true vision and change. I want to tell you that leadership is not in age; leadership is not in condition, you can find leaders among poor people and rich people,” Wollo said.
Addressing supporters early this week in the Rehab Community in Lower Johnsonville, he noted that there are too many children and women in his district who are faced with major health challenges as a result of the inability of their lawmaker to seek their welfare.
Wollo told the gathering that only a maternal health center can address the healthcare needs of residents of District Number Two which he promised to commit himself to when elected as their representative.
“I feel strongly that we build a maternal health center in this district so that when our wives and sisters are pregnant they will go for better treatment; where when our wives and baby mothers can go for better treatment, where when our children are very young they can go for better treatment,” Wollo asserted.
Wollo who serves as National Vice Chairman for Recruitment and Mobilization for the Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction said Liberians have been duped by politicians for long and it is time that politicians are duped by them.
He named road rehabilitation as a serious priority for people of the district since according to him; the only route used as a major link for inhabitants and commuters in the area is currently in a deplorable state.
Self-help initiatives according to him will further improve various roads within the district, stressing the importance for educational opportunities to benefit cross sections of the district.
“The road business is one of the problems we have in this district and now to pave road would be costly for a single representative, but what we can do is to join efforts in rehabilitating the feeder roads in our communities until government comes in,” Wollo intoned.
The National Rehabilitation and Integration Program for Liberia is what the young representative hopeful intents to take to the National Legislature as his first Bill if elected by his people.
This Bill according to him would compel government to remove disadvantage youths (Zogos) from streets across the country and enable them to learn new skills through a one-year program.
Meanwhile, Wollo is calling for unity among residents across the district and wants them be peaceful during the electoral process.
