UPP and BPM candidates make final appeal and are blessed during gospel concert headlined by Bridget Blucher

17

Several Candidates of the United Progressive Party (UPP) and the lone candidate for the Barbuda People’s Movement (BPM) have made their final pitch on why they should be elected to represent the people and the country.

The Candidates made their appeal during a gospel concert on Monday night, January 16, that sought God’s intervention into the wicked and evil state into which the country has fallen.

Many of the UPP hopefuls said they were buoyed by the event, and they pledged, once elected, to represent their constituents to the best of their abilities.

They also gave reasons why they are the “Right Choice,” come Election Day, Wednesday, January 18.

The event, which saw a selection of local performers take to the stage, was headlined by gospel artiste Bridget Blucher.  Her ministry ran into the early hours of Tuesday, January 17, with audience members and social-media followers describing it as powerful.

During the rally, the Candidates were blessed and prayed for, zone by zone, by several clergymen, including the Party’s chaplain, Pastor Paul Andrew, of Christian Assembly Ministries.

Meanwhile, today, January 17, was declared a day of prayer and fasting by members of the Evangelical Association.

  1. Non nationals please remember to vote for the antigua and Barbuda 🇦🇬 Labour tomorrow.
    Three times amnesty to free us from the bondage that we were under by THE FORMER UPP GOVERNMENT…

    • Antiguan nationals remember to vote in droves for the UPP.

      Look at how @ Kunta appealing for the non nationals vote, which proves, and goes to show that the ABLP really doesn’t care about the indigenous Antiguans and those that have worked here, paid their taxes – in full – and contributed PROUDLY to the country.

      Very revealing thread … 🤔

      🎶 Geh Rid ah Dem 🎵

    • Kunta, I know a few non-nationals who rallied behind Gaston last election. Helping him sure up all the foreigners who can vote to come out and vote for him. Not long after the election, he dash dem way. Dem can’t even call his name. So you tan dey. Gaston is a wicked man. He got to go!

  2. Trevor Walker spoke these words in CHURCH – referring to the people of Barbuda:

    “…and seem to be on a protracted path of
    **GAMBLING**
    1). IDLENESS
    2). SEXUAL PROMISCUITY
    3). DRUG ABUSE
    4). ALCOHOL ABUSE
    5). BADMINDED-NESS
    6).COVETUOUS-NESS
    7).SELFISHNESS
    8).UNPRODUCTIVITY. People don’t want to work
    9)DECEITFULNESS
    10).People badminded and just covet other people
    11).LACK OF RESPECT FOR OTHERS
    12).LACK OF RESPECT FOR THOSE IN AUTHORITY
    13).Council say work til 4 o’clock or 5 o’clock. You warn go home 10 o’clock
    14).LAZINESS
    15).THE LOVE FOR MONEY
    16).GREEDINESS
    And the last one which I find is the most profound for me:
    17). OUR TURNING AWAY FROM GODLY THINGS”.

  6. Before you vote pray for God guidance that his will will be fulfilled, also say the national athem and let your conscious be your guide. If you are ok with corruption and ok with calling evil good and good evil you need to check yourself. A government that is doing a great job but has to pay out money to get votes is only concerned about being in power for selfish gains

  7. They did the same thing in 2014 and they have not learned their lesson. God is not mocked. He will punish you with 17:0.
    Arl yuh forgot so fast what happened that night with all the priests and men of the cloth praying for you. Paster Dorsett and others. You guys go on and bring God into your dirty politics.

    • … you stay deh with your self-righteous self @ FromTheSideline.

      You have quoted scriptures on these ANR threads on a number of occasions also, you damn hypocrite …

      DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!

  8. …It’s time to separate #church and #state!
    …The church uses the politicians and vice_versa!
    …since, to become a healer, prophet or #minister
    …one simply open a book, gets indoctrinated as a # scammer!
    …and, it’s just as easy to become a Government Minister!
    …give them free concerts, make-up and some dollars
    …either way, they’re still playing a #Con_Game
    …saying, I represent the poor and destitute
    …but, instead their lies surpass their #truth
    …lying about, how they’re doing it; in, the #Holy_Spirit’s name.
