Now even the present representative the Rt.Honorable Said Musa has endorsed Henry Charles Usher to be the candidate and the next representative for Fort George, he has sent out a letter to the voters of Fort George asking them to support Henry Charles Usher. It’s more a formality I think next week we’re probably going to have an executive meeting a National Executive meeting, a virtual meeting basically to just say yes we agree with the recommendation of the executive of Fort George. I’m happy to have Henry Charles as a part of our team thirty one he has been the chairman of the party since 2010 and he has served with distinction as the chairman of the party with the ups and downs he never gave up he will continuously be there battling the UDP every single day and I have confidence that the people of Fort George are going to vote for him when they call the next elections. My views on Will Maheia, Will Maheia is my very good friend and I call him and said “What on earth are you doing in Fort George.”- uhm, nuff said.”
