The Representative Candidate on the ticket of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) in Montserrado County District #8, Acarous Moses Gray has cautioned the first-time voters of his party in his district and Liberia at large against electoral violence as a means of safeguarding the country’s peace and stability.

Speaking to hundreds of young and exuberant first-time voters over the weekend at the Saye Town Sports pitch in District #8, Monrovia, Representative Gray highlighted to his young supporters, the importance of maintaining Liberia’s hard-earned peace, citing that protecting the peace of the country during and after the General and Presidential Elections will ensure the growth and development of Liberia.

The District #8 lawmaker called on the young Liberians to avoid confrontation during the electoral period in order to sustain the peace of the country.

He warned his supporters not to go to other candidates’ rallies to cause problems, as he encouraged them to avoid the ills, lamenting that if they get involved with violence and get arrested by the police, he won’t intervene on grounds that he doesn’t support the violence.

Representative Gray used the occasion to call on his supporters to promote the reelection bid of President George M. Weah as well as the reelection bid of Montserrado county Senator Saah H. Joseph.

The CDC stalwart encouraged Cdcians to campaign for the CDC candidates, including the President of Liberia based on the many developmental initiatives they have carried out in their respective areas.

Meanwhile, the Legislative floor-fighter extolled the first-time voters for bracing the storm and defying nature to be a part of the CDC District #8 political rally.

“I say thank you to all the first-time voters who braved the storm today and defied nature to be a part of this rally. We don’t know how to tell you thank you for the fact that you have been under the rain since this morning,” Representative Gray asserted.

For her part, the Coordinator for the CDC first-time voters in District #8, Cynthia Wologo expressed delight on behalf of her comrades to be a part of the decision-making process of their district.

Wologo used the occasion to declare her organization’s support to the District #8 Lawmaker as well as the Senatorial and Presidential reelection bids of Senator Saah H. Jospeh and President George M. Weah respectively.

The first-time voters attributed their decision to the many opportunities the CDC government as well as the District #8 Lawmaker has provided to youth of the district as a reason for them pledging their support to the CDC stalwart’s reelection.

She emphasized the free tuition policy for public colleges and universities, the Payment of West African Senior Schools Certificate Examination fees for 12th graders, amongst many other initiatives by President Weah, coupled with the capacity building and empowerment initiatives by the district Lawmaker as reasons that informed their decision.

Wologo used the occasion to call on all of her members to implement the one round victory mandate by the Coalition for Democratic Change by coming out in their numbers to massively vote for President Weah.

The First-time voters top official lauded all of her comrades for forming part of the District #8 political rally, which according to her was intended to showcase the strength of the organization in the district.

The First-time voters political rally organized by CDC District #8 Representative Candidate and also Incumbent Lawmaker, Acarous Moses Gray was well attended as hundreds of young Liberians were seen marching on the principal streets of the district.

The First-time voters political rally commenced with a march from the CDC District #8 Campaign office in the Plumkor community and ended at the Saye Town sports pitch where political speeches were delivered.

Gray has always been on the forefront calling on supporters of CDC to avoid violence and such a call has fallen on fertile soil as his supporters exercised a high level of restraint and comportment during the first-time voters march on Saturday.
