MONROVIA – At the heels of the Sunday, 17 September 2023 campaign launch of the main opposition Unity Party (UP), Unity Party Alliance campaign chairperson, Grand Bassa County Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence has indicated that the “Rescue Mission’ campaign launch will lock down the capital, Monrovia.
In concert with its political allies known as the Unity Party Alliance, which comprises the Economic Freedom Fighters of Liberia (EFFL), the Rainbow Alliance, Movement for One Liberia, (MOL), the National Democratic Coalition (NDC), and Karnga-Lawrence’s faction of the segmented Liberty Party (LP), Unity Party recently announced the various routes the “Rescue Train” would take, as well as those who are poised to lead the parades from several locations in Monrovia and it suburbs onto the Antoinette Tubman Stadium, the venue of the campaign launch dubbed “Green Day.”
“Sunday we will lock Monrovia down;” said Karnga-Lawrence, in a video clip in which she was seen alongside MacDella Cooper, political leader of the Movement for One Liberia (MOL), a constituent member party of the Unity Party Alliance.
Both ladies, who go by the appellations “Rescue Mother” for Nyonblee, and “Rescue Aunty” for MacDella, are currently on a foreign trip in the West African sub-region along with UP standard bearer, former VP Joseph Nyuma Boakai, according to a statement issued earlier this week by the Unity Party Alliance Campaign Team.
The pair can be seen in the video clip broadcast on social media via Senator Karnga-Lawrence’s official Facebook handle – while the UP Campaign Chairperson foretells how the Sunday’s campaign launch would pull a massive crowd of supporters of the “Rescue Mission.
She used the occasion to appreciate partisans, supporters, and sympathizers of the “Rescue Mission”, informing them that all is well.
“To all of our partisans, to our rescue children, to our rescue team, all is well. We will soon get on our way back to lock Montserrado down,” Karnga-Lawrence emphasized.
Amid reports that business centers at the country’s oldest market, the Water-Side Market have run out of t-shirts, as a result of same being bought in large quantities for the 17 September event, the UP Alliance Campaign Chairperson admonished supporters of the “Rescue Mission” to turn our en mass whether they have paraphernalia or not.
“You’ve got t-shirts, no t-shirts, no caps, whatever you have, just come out. We understand, and we’ve just heard that no t-shirts on the market. We want to appreciate all of you who are printing and buying your own t-shirts,” she noted.
She continued: “To our Liberians in the Diaspora, who are sponsoring different groups, we appreciate the partnership; we appreciate the fight together to rescue our country.”
