The National Chairman of the People’s Unification Party or PUP, Mr. Isobe Gborkorkollie, says his party is overpoweringly impressed with Vice President Joseph Boakai’s recent selection of Speaker James Emmanuel Nuquay as his running for the October elections, describing it as a well-thought and well-informed decision.
Addressing a news conference on Thursday, 13 July at his party headquarters in Monrovia, he says there are no doubts that the Boakai-Nuquay Ticket is the best pair to effectively manage Liberia’s transition after President Sirleaf steps down in January 2018.
He says the Vice President and the Speaker are two magnificent nationalists, who have won the great respect and admiration of their respective generations and have both individually and collectively distinguished themselves as men of virtues in testing times.
“They have been tried, tested and proven right”, he adds and refers to the two officials as wonder boys who have unraveled a new picture in the political landscape of Liberia.
Chairman Gborkorkollie continues that the UP Ticket for the pending elections is a ticket of integrity, saying “This Ticket represents great political tranquilizers with the attractive power to pull, bound together and lead Liberia to newer heights of certainty and self-actualization as opposed to hope and wishful thinking.”
According to him, the Boakai-Nuquay Ticket is destined by time and ordained by heaven to deliver the new Liberia that Liberians have long craved and envisaged.The PUP Chair calls on other political parties and their leaders from indulging in throwing tantrums, gibberish and brazen attacks, noting that the PUP believes that instead of walking the wrong road, political party leaders should learn to exercise restraint and allow reasoning to surpass emotions.
