Former ruling Unity Party (UP) lawmaker, Worlea-Saywah Dunah has pledged his suport to the reelection of President George M Weah in pending October 10, 2023 Presidential and Legislative elections.
Worlea-Saywah Dunah, a former Representative of Nimba County stressed that that in order for the country to mover forward, he would prefers President Weah of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) over his own party’s candidate, Joseph Boakai in the October 10 polls.
The UP stalwart who may likely face some punishment for violating his party’s constitution, stated that he stands by his decision to endorse CDC Weah over the UP Boakai due to a rift between him and Boakai.
Former Rep. Dunah who also clarified that he remains a member of the UP noted that he is convinced that President Weah is a prospect for change based on the policies he has witnessed during his five years in office.
Addressing a news conference Wednesday, April 12, 2023, Dunah indicated that before leaving the legislature, lobbied and secured intervention in the cocoa sector for his people from the World Bank, maintaining that today cocoa farmers in Nimba are benefiting from better seeds and extension services.
Additionally, the second portion of farm-to-market road rehabilitation up to 10 million was signed and implemented in parts of Zoegeh, Gbehlay Geh, and Tappita areas since 2021, bringing immense relief to their people.
Dunah also praised the Weah government’s fitting policy prescription, which he said includes free education for students from kindergarten to college and the expansion of all-weather roads as the focal thrust of the last six years.
He also commended President Weah for recognizing illiteracy as a generational death trap and providing the urgent magic panacea to combat it, thus highlighted the impact of education on society is explosive in terms of progress and development, and its lack thereof can be brutal, bloody, and full of sorrow, as witnessed in Liberia.
According to him, during his years at the Capitol, he advocated for free education and wanted Nimba College to be free education for all students, pointing out that people insisted that parents must contribute to the education of their children.
This, he believes that the free education policy provides significant policy overlap fundamental to coalition building in politics, and sees it as an ideological imperative to help make it work, or else, he fears that their children’s and grandchildren’s bones may well litter around, as his generation follows the ego of barbaric egoistic military political actors again
