Businessman MacDonald A. Wento and political leader of the United People’s Party (UPP) has said that the United People’s Party (UPP) under his leadership will take agriculture and education to a new height in Liberia, adding, “We will feed ourselves and create an educated middle-income country,”.
The UPP political leader spoke recently during the induction of officers of the Student Integration Movement (SIM) at the University of Liberia, ‘Mac’, as he prefers to be called – stated that his party will provide opportunities to fulfill dreams and boost the Liberian economy.
The United People’s Party, he intimated, is a progressive grassroots political institution which, for a long time, has been passionate about the democratic transformation of Liberia. Now UPP has as its priorities economic empowerment of the citizenry, institutional development, decentralized governmental operations, capacity building, infrastructure construction and maintenance. “Jobs creation will be a top priority of my administration,” says Mr. Wento.
The UPP Presidential Candidate furthered that improving the lives of the Liberian people and transforming Liberia will be accomplished through sound decision making and visionary leadership.
