‘Elect Leaders with Integrity, Accountability, Performance,’ Says Dr. Jones

first_img– Advertisement – Dr. J. Mills Jones The Liberian electorate have been urged to choose leaders with integrity on October 10, because “we have been changing leaders since 1847 but our conditions remain the same,” said Dr. J. Mills Jones, the standard bearer of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE). Dr. Jones said Liberia’s problem is not the changing of leaders.“What is required is choosing leaders with integrity and competence with a record of accountability and performance; and that is exactly what I bring to this presidential election,” he stated.“Judging from my work at the Central Bank of Liberia, an institution that I met in complete tatters and transformed it into a more functional financial institution, and was audited twice a year by international firms but still remain unblemished of corruption in a country where corruption has taken different forms and names,” Dr. Jones boasted. The MOVEE leader’s message reached thousands of partisans as he toured several communities in Montserrado County District #13 where he received several endorsements from partisans from the Liberian Plank Sellers Association, Stockton Creek Ambassadors for Economic Empowerment, Chocolate City Women for MOVEE, COWAGIL and the Carpenters Association.At the Battery Factory Plank Field Community, its chairman Austin Williams said they are ardent followers of Dr. Jones because of his economic empowerment activities throughout the country, for which they are resolved to support his presidential bid on October 10. “Today we have gathered here not because we have come to see the beauty of District# 13 but because our country is at a crucial juncture and we the people and members of the various groups are determined to take our country from mess to best,” Mr. Williams said. “Having patiently and analytically perused the track records of all the presidential candidates vying for the Liberian presidency without any prejudice against any one, and with a mind to support a single presidential candidate that has integrity and credibility, we the above named groups and communities in District #13 have resolved to support and campaign for you, Dr. Jones, to become Liberia’s next President,” Williams noted.At the Stockton Creek Community, after endorsing Dr. Jones’s presidential bid, spokesman Arma Pana said they are tired of people who have provided “schools without chairs, teachers without pay, and markets without roofs.” Reading the endorsement statement, Mr. Pana said some politicians are promising to cut government spending on cars, “but they have a huge caravan of cars for which no one knows where the resources come from,” while others are using planes and helicopters to travel and campaign, he cried.At the end of his endorsements, Dr. Jones later said: “It is an interesting exercise, meeting and shaking hands with ordinary Liberians in street corners, listening to their stories and concerns, seeing on their faces the radiating light of poverty have even further motivated and inspired us to keep moving on with our vision to transform the Liberian economy and infrastructure to create more jobs for them.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
