Ahead of Liberia’s 2023 Presidential and Legislative Elections slated for later this year, a senior executive member of the JNB Tact Team – 2023 Planning and Strategy Committee, Steve T.S. Bundor II, has urged Liberians to make what he calls sound voting decision when they go to the polls on 10 October.
Speaking recently in the U.S. on the importance of sound electoral decision-making by Liberians, as they vote for a president and a vice president, as well as a horde of legislators in less than eight months’ time, Mr. Bundor, who also serves as vice chairperson for media relations for the JNB Tact Team, informed electorate that it is important to make sound voting decisions in order to secure Liberia’s future.
“Voting is not only a civil responsibility, but it is also an expression of our collective will as a nation,” Mr. Bundor emphasized, cautioning Liberians that their individual decisions, as they go to the polls, can have a lasting impact on the policies and direction of Liberia.
“Therefore, it is important to consider the various parameters for making sound voting decisions- including the characteristics of the candidates, their track record, their experience, their plan for the nation, and most importantly, the trust you have in them to carry out the plans,” he warned.
The JNB Tact Team’s top official then noted that in lieu of such caution, he is with great enthusiasm, encouraging all Liberians to consider former Vice President Ambassador Joseph Nyuma Boakia Sr., as the next President of Liberia.
According to Bundor, during Ambassador Boakia’s tenure in both government and the private sector, the Unity Party Standard Bearer has established an excellent track record of delivering results.
“He has distinguished himself through his intellectual capacity and commitment to public service. His vision for the growth and development of Liberia is one that can bring meaningful progress to our nation through economic growth, social inclusion, and good governance,” Bundor said of JNB.
He continued: “We seek a government that is premised on equal justice and opportunity, where every Liberian’s rights and dignity are respected. We seek leaders that can lead with integrity and courage, and who can set the standard for ethical behavior. You have a chance to make a difference in this election, and we urge you to take the time to do your research and make a sound voting decision.
We ask you to consider the rescue Liberia mission headed by Ambassador Joseph Nyuma Boakia Sr., as he contests for President of Liberia comes October 10th, 2023.
Fellow Liberians, remember your decision could have lasting impacts on our nation’s future.”
He averred that his urge to Liberians to make a sound voting decision by electing Ambassador Boakai, is not a one from an individual who anticipates anything in return, rather, he said, his plea to the electorate was his way of acknowledging the attached authority all Liberians have to transform and transition their own lives.
“Fellow patriotic sons and daughters, we appreciate your direct and tireless commitment to the rescue mission mandate and we thank you for your endless time and consideration throughout this process,” Bundor asserted, adding, “We trust, with your collaboration, cooperation, and consideration, we will combat this corrupt administration headed by President George M. Weah and his bunch of unqualified inhabitants.”
He reminded Liberians of JNB’s call to them to stand ready to roll their sleeves, adding that he’s of the belief that his fellow compatriots are equally equipped to champion such agenda, because according to him, it requires thinking about Liberia, loving Liberia, and rebuilding Liberia for the younger generation.
