As the 2014 Special Senatorial election draws closer, the Deputy Managing Director for Administration at the Liberia Petroleum Refinery Company (LPRC) has refuted rumors that he intends to contest Nimba County Senatorial seat in next year’s midterm elections.
“I have absolutely no intention of running for senate 2014; maybe I will think about that next time, but not 2014 because I am not ready,” Mr. Doe emphasized.
Jackson F. Doe, Jr., son the late astute Liberian Politician believed to have been robbed of the Presidency in 1985, has admonished Liberians to exercise extreme care in their decisions for individuals to ably represent them in the Liberian Senate.
He told reporters in Gbarnga, Bong County recently that the decisions taken at the ballot box on October 14, 2014 would either improve or make the country worse.
Mr. Doe urged Liberians to choose experienced and innovative individuals who have worked for humanity and national development, warning them not to be moved by belly-politics and rhetoric.
He frowned on rice and other food items being used as campaign tools, especially by incumbents, adding that if people would choose to eat today and forget about the future, it will undermine efforts being made to develop the post-war country.
Mr. Doe showed a video documentary at the Cuttington University campus, highlighting extreme conditions experienced by southeasterners by the day, expressing the belief that the issues of bad road, deplorable learning facilities and others can only be tackled in the southeast by electing the right leaders in next year’s senatorial election.
