BUCHANAN PORT DIRECTOR BARSI-GIAH LEADS COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENTS FOR WEAH’S RE-ELECTION

Date:

BUCHANAN, GRAND BASSA COUNTY – The Director of Liberia’s second largest seaport, the Port of Buchanan situated in Grand Bassa County, Mr. Siokin Civicus Barsi-Giah, is heading community engagements in that part of the country aimed at incumbent President George Weah’s re-election in the country’s impending presidential runoff election.

Liberian electorate are poised to go to the polls on 14 November in a second round of voting in the race for the country’s presidency, following the failure of the two top candidates in the 10 October general elections to have obtained the constitutionally required 50 percent plus one vote to have won on the first ballot.

Ruling party Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) Candidate Weah, who obtained the highest votes, 804,087, accounting for 43.83%, in the 20-candidate presidential election in the first round of voting on 10 October, goes to the run-off with his closest rival, the former ruling Unity Party (UP) Standard Bearer Joseph Boakai, who obtained 796,961 votes, amounting to 43.44%.

Howbeit, as campaigns intensify for the 14 November runoff election, a staunch supporter of President Weah, Buchanan Port Director, Barsi-Giah, heading a special mobilization and voters’ recruitment team in Buchanan, is traversing Grand Bassa County wooing electorate to vote the CDC candidate for a second six-year term.

Barsi-Giah avers that he and his team are fully committed and packed to convert Grand Bassa County to the re-election process of President Weah, whom he refers to as “Great Man Walkin, “Born to succeed”…’Liberia’s Miracle Child’ and the man who does the unusual.

At the weekend, Barsi-Giah and Team commenced community engagement activities with the donation of 50 bags of 25kg bags of rice, as gift to 50 best nurses at the Buchanan Government Hospital, in Buchanan City.

“Our nurses are our saviors. We must honor them,” said Barsi-Giah, during the donation exercise, slamming members of the political opposition bloc in Liberia for turning a blind eye to all that those who support Weah’s re-election do to uplift others in the country, while they (opposition members) do nothing, but only demand that Liberians elect Boakai as Liberia’s next president.

Meanwhile, Barsi-Giah has thanked the people of Bassa for listening to him and his Team, and are supporting the CDC presidential ticket.

He disclosed that his team will continue its community engagement exercises until their preferred candidate; President Weah wins the 14 November presidential runoff election.
