ALDP’s Leader Gets Churches Support In Bassa …Vows To Rule With Fear Of God

The standard bearer of the newest political party, the All Liberians Destiny Party (ALDP) says if Liberians would give him the mantle of leadership in 2023, he will lead the nation with the fear of God.
Mr. Jacob Seyon Kwateh made the statement recently in Grand Bassa County where he visited few villages and churches like the Remedy International and Fire for Fire Ministries, among others in the city of Buchanan.
In most of his encounters with the villagers and the churches, he knelt down and recited 2 Chronicles 7:14 from the Holy scriptures which states: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
He strongly believes that the weird things that are happening in the country like citizens lying under their bosses’ vehicles or setting themselves ablaze in protest for wages and mysterious deaths are not normal but that such actions are the results of God’s abandonment of the land because of unrepentance and wickedness.
He expressed that, “Liberia, more than ever before needs a leader like me who will unite the nation with the reverential fear of God and love because there is so much hate, unhealthy jealousy, aggressiveness and betrayal which can only be healed by sincerely or diligently returning to the creator.”
Kwateh also promised to be accountable, promote human rights, the rule of law and good governance and be opened to receiving investors to develop the country.
But he warned that every investor will have to answer an important question and that is, “How will your investment benefit the people when no investor will go Scott-free if he or she maltreats the citizens as they are doing now?.
He reiterated his commitment after seeing the impoverished and vulnerable conditions of the people especially in one village near Buchanan which is also a concession area where residents fetch drinking water from a creek.
In separate but similar remarks, the churches welcomed him with a promise to support his presidential bid for the fact that he has acknowledged the redeeming power of God.
According to the clergyman, Kwateh is the first politician they have seen who has gone to seek God’s protection and wisdom before embarking on his political career therefore, if he is really sincere, God will grant him protection and the wisdom he seeks to lead his people as was done in the case of Solomon.
They also admonished him to brace up for the challenges ahead because even Moses and other prophets faced adversities in the hands of the very people that God commissioned them to redeem.
The ALDP Presidential hopeful concluded his acquaintance visit to Grand Bassa with a kick ball and a soccer match which brought together lots of young and older people as an insignia of UNITY.
