“Whether there is a change of leadership or not after the election, I want them (candidates) to be fair to everyone. No matter I voted for the candidate or not but if you win the seat, you have to be fair to everyone and everyone must have a share of development.” 

William Nunu

Interviewed at Point Cruz 

I want to encourage voters to take a critical look and vote wisely so we can see changes, if we still vote the same leadership we might not see changes. In terms of development change I want to see, I want improvement on education. This is important to help people so that they are aware of issues and they can create ideas on how to improve lives. This means more schools, classrooms and scholarships”
