Costa Performs Dismally in District Six Elections as Enders Takes Lead

MONROVIA, Montserrado – Unofficial provisional results for Tuesday’s elections continue to be reported since last evening as counting and tallying of votes is ongoing at polling stations.

In Montserrado sixth district, the results have so far indicated that talk show host Henry Costa is performing poorly.

Costa, a host of the popular ‘Costa Show’ and candidate on the ticket of Benoni Urey’s All Liberian Party, is far from fourth place in the election.

Results tallied at each of the major stations in the district, including Carver Mission, Boluco Christian School, Calvary Chapel, and Kendeja Elementary and Senior High School campuses, show that he barely obtained 50 votes at each location.

He lies far behind independent candidate Samuel Enders, who is reportedly in the lead. Other contenders in the district according to the unofficial results are Liberty Party’s Martin Kollah, Joseph Todd of the Coalition for Democratic Change, and Euriah Glaygbo.

Although Costa considers himself an acclaimed advocate, many have termed him as being uncouth in his advocacy.

Unlike the days preceding the elections, where he conducted his show each morning even when away in the U.S., the candidate was not heard on his regular platform today.

He had, however, appeared live on Facebook to get back at his critics. He dismissed criticisms that he had been ill-mannered in his advocacy.

Costa bragged about making an impact through his radio show, including exposing corruption, promoting justice and helping to bring relief to many including the underprivileged.

Efforts by The Bush Chicken to contact him have been unfruitful.

Similarly, Benoni Urey, the presidential candidate Costa has always promoted, will not feature among the first four candidates, according to unofficial results.
