Frank Jericho Nagbe, former Coach of the Liberian National Team (the Lonestar) now Coach of premiere side LISCR-FC led the way as hundreds of West Pointers spilled the street to take a glimpse of the political torchbearer of the opposition Liberty Party.
Esther Toe, resident of WestPoint stated that she joined Unity Party because she has seen no light in her previous party.
Toe: “if I can join Liberty party, then you must know that there is something good in liberty party. Today, If I be successful with Liberty Party through my effort, my people can enjoy.”
The Township of West Point in Monrovia turned out in their masses to welcome Liberty Party’s Charles Walker Brumskine on Saturday, May 14, 2011.
Cllr. Brumskine was in West Point to dedicate the office of his party. Citizens of the township, which is widely considered a CDC stronghold, were seen chanting political slogans to the LP’s standard bearer.
Coach Nagbe pledged his support to the LP and announced that he will be contesting the Representative seat of District # 1 on the party’s ticket.
Old man Winston, who says he’s got a thousand members following in the Wheelbarrows Union and owns more than one hundred wheelbarrows, says he was a supporter of the Congress for Democratic Change, but since the ceding of the standard bearer position by Weah to Tubman, he has seen no reason to follow the CDC.
“Now they turn Oppong brain around, his eye ball turning”.
Cllr. Brumskine in remarks to the people of West Point described the day as historic for his party.
The LP strongman thanked the West Pointers, especially Nagbe for his support to the LP.
Speaking on the issue of unification, Cllr. Brumskine urged Liberians to put their differences aside regardless of political affiliation and start with personal reconciliation.
Brumskine: “I want us today to start with personal reconciliation, I ask every Liberian to reconcile with that family member with whom you have not spoken for many days.”
The former President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate said it is time for Liberians to move forward.
Cllr. Brumskine, speaking at the Kru Beach community in West Point said Liberians are at cross-roads, moving towards the general and presidential elections which will see a new government taking the mantle of authority for Liberia.
“I promise you West Pointers that when I’m elected your President we will also elect our city mayors, we will also elect our paramount chiefs, we will also elect our town and clan chiefs, we will elect all of those people who are suppose to administer the affairs of government”.
He urged every Liberian to take advantage of the upcoming referendum and vote YES for all the amendments.
