The residents highlighted the ongoing insecurities and suffering that Liberians are enduring throughout the country.
“Joseph Boakai, you are the only hope that Liberians now have. We stand with you to come and deliver this country from the grip of weakness and bad governance that Liberians are currently facing. Our children are increasingly getting involved in drug use, and there is a lack of vocational training institutions, along with rehabilitation centers for them,” they added.
Annie Jackson and Elder Samuel Johnson told reporters that the upcoming November 14 election is of critical importance and that a leader like Boakai is needed to rescue the country.
They explained that the country is currently suffering from poor leadership and urgently needs change, referring to Unity Party’s political leader, Boakai, as the best candidate.
Eric Sackie, a student in Kakata, informed reporters that due to economic hardship, student enrollment in private schools across the county has significantly decreased compared to the previous government’s tenure.
Our event correspondent reported that the residents of Kakata City gathered in large numbers, marching through the streets of Kakata City, singing and dancing in support of Boakai while calling on him to rescue them from the poor leadership of the CDC.
Addressing the enthusiastic crowd in Kakata, Unity Party’s political leader, Ambassador Joseph Boakai, called on citizens not to support the re-election bid of President George Weah but rather to support the Unity Party.
“Look at the living conditions of Liberians today; we are suffering, and our children are falling into drug abuse. It’s time for the citizens to speak with one voice and vote for the Unity Party,” he stated.
Furthermore, former Vice President Joseph Boakai pledged to deliver the country and improve the lives of Liberians. He mentioned job creation, opportunities for future leaders, women’s empowerment, agriculture, and enhanced healthcare facilities across the country as his priorities.
He revealed that his leadership would bring pride, increased investment, and improved living conditions for Liberians, among other benefits.
Our reporter cited an elderly woman who was seen fighting her way through the crowd to greet Unity Party Ambassador Joseph Boakai. She described him as the best leader who, when elected as president, would make a significant difference in the country’s leadership.
