In separate statements of support and solidarity, citizens expressed confidence in the integrity, competence and qualification of Mr. Cummings as the best suitable Presidential candidate capable of dealing with the vexing socio-economic challenges and the country’s current predicament.
Youth leaders, women and inter-religious groups cautioned Liberians against repeating past mistakes of electing the wrong leaders, and said, “Even members of the international community would prefer a Cummings presidency in October.”
The Stephen Tolbert soccer pitch political rally was one of the largest gatherings of CPP supporters in Montserrado County.
In response to the citizens’ pledge of support, Mr. Cummings reiterated his commitment to addressing the serious economic challenges and infrastructural deficits that are making life unbearable and leaving a vast majority of people in abject poverty.

He called for sober reflection on the part of every well-meaning Liberian desirous of change in the country and a better life, to support his Presidential quest.
He noted that within the first one hundred days of Cummings’ Administration, citizens will begin to experience the impact of change for the better.
