A group of local businessmen in Nimba County has vowed to support the candidacy of Vice President Joseph N. Boakai come 2017. The head of the Nimba business tycoons Mr. FareyDekpah said their decision to support Ambassador Boakai for the Presidency is based on his past records.
He said among the many aspirants in the race, his group will support and remain committed to ensure VP Boakai wins the presidency, adding he is the only presidential aspirant, who is corruption-free since the Nimba County business tycoons got to know him.
Mr. Dekpah described VP Boakai as a public servant, adding that when such a person is elected to the country’s highest office, he foresees a great change in Liberia, in terms of growth. According to him, it will not be necessary to elect someone who is not totally free from corruption to occupy the highest office or else, the citizenry will continue to suffer.
“We will support VP Boakai for the 2017 Presidential elections,” he emphasized. He said voters should be very mindful how they go about in electing their leaders, which should not be on the basis of what they will get from them at that particular moment, but put Liberia first.
