Presidential hopeful and standard bearer of the Movement for Economic Empowerment or MOVEE Dr. Joseph Mills Jones is cautioning the people of Nimba County to reject tribalism and vote in the interest of Liberia comes October 10, 2017.
Addressing thousands of supporters in Nimba recently during a tour of the 17 administrative districts of the county, the ex-Executive Governor of the Central Bank of Liberia dubbed the ‘Poverty Doctor’ for his controversial loan scheme in rural Liberia, said the country’s reconstruction requires involvement of all Liberians rather than making decision at the ballot box based on tribal affiliation.
“Not county nor brothers, who hail from the same district we will eat, this thing cannot help a nation to development, but state power should be given to individual, who is well equipped to help improve lives in this nation”, he maintains.
Dr. Jones rejects report that he is no longer interested in the Presidential race comes October. Speaking to citizens of Graie Township along the Ganta-Tappita highway in Nimba, he dismisses the report as far from the truth.
He says comes October, his photograph will be on the ballot paper as a presidential candidate. According to him, his recent visit to Nimba County was to avail himself to Namibians, who have not seen him in person but his photograph.
However, he stresses that it is about time that Nimbaians open their eyes and select a leader, who will care and love his people.
Also speaking, the Chairman of Dr. Jones’ MOVEE party Dee Maxwell SaaKemayah, Sr., says the pending elections in October are crucial and need the involvement of all Liberians.
