Bopolu, Gbarpolu: Following the suspension of his 2023 Presidential Campaign for two days due to a tragic motor accident involving some supporters of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), along the Gbarnga Highway, President George Manneh Weah resume his Political Rally in Gbarpolu this week.

The President was shockingly informed in Bomi County while on his campaign tour that three members of CDC’s axillary group, styled: “GIRLS FOR WEAH” met their untimely deaths while they were on campaign trail in central region of Liberia.

A release, signed by Mr. Lenn Eugene Nagbe, CDC National Campaign Manager, made the disclosure.

It may be recalled that on Monday, President Weah and his campaign entourage landed in Bomi County.

Two Political Rallies were held in Jenneh and Tubmanburg City in continuation of the President’s 2023 re-election bid aimed at securing his second six-year constitutional term.

According to the campaign schedules of the ruling CDC, President Weah and team are expected to visit Cooper Town in Bomi County, before proceeding to Gbarmah District in Gbarpolu County, where he will hold a Political Rally for his re-election.

Following the tour of Gbarpolu, the Liberian leader will extend the campaign tour to several towns in other parts of Western Liberia including Robertsport City, Grand Cape Mount County.

The President’s Western Liberia campaign tour is expected to end on August 27, 2023.

On Monday, the President and his 2023 Campaign Delegation hit the ground running in Bomi County in nationwide political engagements where thousands of citizens across the county’s electoral districts accompanied him from Po River Bridge to Tubmanburg to showcase and reaffirm their support to his re-election bid.

President Weah and entourage were first received in Bomi at the Po-River Bridge by chiefs, elders, and thousands of jubilant citizens, including the elderly and young people who sang victorious and revolutionary songs of support.

During the first engagement that took place in Jenneh, Dehwen District, the citizens vowed to stand with the President in his reelection bid because they have seen his worth as a productive leader and a son of the soil in whom they have explicit confidence and trust.

The Head of Chiefs and Elders of Bomi, Mr. Jonah Mark said: “We the Dey People will support you; for you are own son. There is no way we can turn away from you. If we say we are for you, we are for you. Believe us.”

Elder Mark informed President Weah that the people of Swehn Mecca, Dehwen District, won’t falter in their allegiance and bond of fidelity to anyone, let alone him, who as their President, has been working with dedication to transform their District and county.

He continued: “We are with you; we will support you. You are listening to your people. It is God who has appointed you to serve us. God wants you to lead us to higher heights. This President has been keeping his promises to us, and we ourselves must keep our promise to vote for him on October 10.”

Addressing the crowd, President Weah debunked criticisms against him by those in opposition that a first round victory for him is a mere illusion and a mark of cheating.

He insisted that a first-round victory everywhere in the democracy world is not a taboo but a possibility.

The CDC Standard-bearer intoned that the government will not hesitate to stand up against anyone who would want to jeopardize the peace and democracy of the Republic, reiterating that the country will follow every democratic tenet.

He thanked the people of Dehwen District and the county in general for the pledge of support for his reelection, which he said, would enable him to do far more than what he has done in the last five years in terms of development and peace-building.
The President informed the people of Bomi relative to the enormous strides he has taken for them and the country when he was a professional footballer and also as President of Liberia.

“It is because of you, because of the love for me, that I am doing everything in this country,” Weah told the citizens

On the way to Tubmanburg, President Weah’s convoy was intermittently stopped and swarmed by enthusiastic crowds of supporters showing and reaffirming their trust and confidence in his ability as a National Leader and for the peace and progress of the country.

He made a brief stop in Klay to meet and greet citizens who graced his arrival in their numbers. He reiterated the need for to his second term quest so as to enable him to complete the work he had already begun.

President Weah told the citizens that he was humble for their pledge of support for his reelection, saying he will continue to stand with and for them.

In the capital city Tubmanburg, thousands of citizens defied all odds, trooped to the C.H. Dewey Sports Field to express their solidarity and love for their President.

In their statements, the chiefs, first time voters and members of the county leadership heaped praises on the President for being there for the County, referencing the electrification of the county, reconditioning of roads, care of health workers and many more development initiatives.

Also, pledging support for President Weah’s second term was Senator Edwin Melvin Snowe and Representative Finda Lasanah, both of whom said the President has done an excellent job for the county and country and therefore deserves a second term.

Senator Snowe particularly told Bomi citizens how he did not support President Weah in 2017 because he was doubtful of his ability to govern the country, but after nearly six years, he is convinced that Weah is up to the task.

Snowe said he was wrong in his opinion at the time but he is now prepared to stand with the President who has proven him wrong.

He described President Weah as a “good man and humble leader” who has shown character of commitment and good leadership to transform the country.

The Bomi County Senator told his citizens that contrary to the insinuations by the Unity Party that the former government should take credit for the electricity they are enjoying, it is indeed President Weah who insisted that the grid should not pass over Bomi into Guinea and Sierra Leone without the citizens benefiting from it.
