“President Weah is a leader who does not pick and choose. If you are qualified President Weah will give you a chance to serve”

“If somebody like me from the slum of Old Road community can be called a minister today, anyone of you in this hall can be a minister. It does not matter who you are and where you come from”

Minister Collins branded Weah as “the future of Liberia” and disclosed several infrastructure expansions plans the government has laid out for Rivercess county, which is home to the president’s deceased mother.

“In our budget we have planned to pave Timbo Road. We are negotiating to put bridge over Cestos River” she told the people stressing “these things we have started doing them, and that is why you must re-elect President Weah so that he can continue”
