COP Endorses Henry Costa For Running Mate To UP Boakai

  1. The Secretary General of the Council of Patriots (COP), Joseph Vallai has called on former Vice President Joseph Boakai to select its chairman, Henry Costa as his running mate for the upcoming October 10, 2023 Presidential election.

This, Mr. Vallai who is also a ranking member of the opposition Unity Party stated who ensure a one round victory for the UP on grouds that Mr. Costa is the best fit to represent the youthful generation.

Addressing a news conference yesterday in Monrovia, the COP SG further indicated that Mr. Costa has positioned himself as a force to be reckoned with in shaping public opinion, and his selection at this time in the country’s history is something that will be celebrated by all Liberians.

Vallai maintained, “Even the Unity Party went looking for him in the second round of the 2017 general and Presidential elections. George Weah was made a laughingstock at some point by Unity Party partisans when Costa rejected the move to CDC for UP.”

“Costa has always been an impressive partner on every team he sits, and the UP and even his haters know that and at 41, Mr. Costa will be the youngest Vice President ever in the history of Liberia, and will be the brand that all young people will rally around, he said.

The UP stalwart further, “So, blending a 78-year-old Joseph Boakai with a 41-year-old firebrand Costa will send a sharp wave across the country. It will be hypocritical for us to be after the youthful votes in the country but at the same time think that young people have no space in the leadership of the country.”

“And losing Costa at this stage over this bickering will be the worst decision the UP and Boakai will make because Mr. Costa’s social media influence as something that could add to Mr. Boakai’s re-election bid.

“Far or near, Costa’s wave touches every life on social media, the new normal globally. Whether in the villages or hamlets of Liberia, Costa’s message on his platform reaches hundreds, if not thousands, of young people who have android phones and are online daily. This is a massive feat.

“The Unity Party and Liberia will not regret bringing the youthful exuberance of Henry Costa to the Vice Presidency as we rally our country for a better and broader opportunity for all,” he asserted.
