Receives Rousing Welcome in Salayea District

Now that the die is cast, political actors and serious presidential hopefuls are hitting the ground running as it relates to their full participation in elections come October 10, 2017.

The Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE) of Dr. J. Mills Jones has made major inroads in Lofa County as he received a rousing welcome by hundreds in the county on Thursday, June 15, 2017 in the city of Salayea, Lofa County, and arguably unlocked the county.

Lofa County, which is believed to be a stronghold of Vice President Joseph N. Boakai, was the scene of a different story when the former Executive Governor of the Central Bank of Liberia and the standard bearer of MOVEE stormed that part of the county.

Welcoming the first partisan of MOVEE in the first town in Lofa County, Beyan Town, the youth chairman of the town, Alexander Nufartaly, said Dr. Jones’ presence in the county is a clear manifestation that he is a true son of the country who means well for his people.

Nufartaly said gone are the days when a politician will unilaterally declare a county or a region a no go zone, stating that Lofa County belongs to no one.

“Dr. Jones, as a former student of the University of Liberia, I benefited from your scholarship at the university. This scholarship was not given based on county or which region you come from,” he noted, “but rather based on merit.”

The youth leader said Dr. Jones’ past record speaks for itself and as such come October 10, 2017 he will be rewarded for his contribution to the ‘grassrooters,’ noting that Lofaians believe that Dr. Jones is the best alternative for Liberia that can change the status quo for the better. Meanwhile, the residents called on Dr. Jones to assist in the establishment of a better country under the MOVEE led government that will bring about positive changes to the lives of the common people.

In response, Dr. Jones thanked the people of Lofa County for the overwhelming welcome and support given his team and promised to live up to their expectations, saying, “this welcome is from the hearts of the people.”

Dr. Jones called on the residents of Lofa County to use their God given rights to change their children’s future for the better, disclosing that “you cannot change by putting the same old people who are presently in power.”

He said a MOVEE led government will bring about economic growth, better educational system, healthcare delivery, and much more.

Dr. Jones used the occasion to call on all Liberians not to listen to some politicians, who are preaching the politics of division, adding that all Liberians desire and deserve better as a united body, “if we work as one.”

Dr. Jones, who is visiting several towns and cities in Lofa County, called on politicians to stop the politics of divide and rule, adding: “When people are talking about a lockdown they are speaking about keeping you down in order to be ahead of you. If they do not have anything to tell you, that is the time they tell you things like that. This is the time for change. You cannot get change by going back to the same old politicians; these politicians only show up during elections period, you cannot teach old dogs new tricks.”

The MOVEE standard bearer is expected to visit all five electoral districts during his stay in Lofa County, including Voinjama and Foya districts.

  1. Hear who’s talking? Mills Jones, a Congo man, talking about divide and rule in Liberia. When did he know it was bad? Constituting only 3% of the population, the Congo people have produced 22 of the 24 presidents of Liberia; whereas, Native Liberians, constituting 95% of the population, have produced only 2.
    Dr. Mills Jones is a. Congo man.

    Interestingly, a few years ago when Dr. Jones had decided to dismiss a young woman from the Central Bank, he summoned her in his office for a few words. He called her a poor country ass and boasted that in America his children attended a school where they were the only blacks, before telling her to get her ass out of his office.

    But unknown to this hateful Congo man, the young woman had recorded his every word and they made in the newspapers.

    But Dr. Mills Jones is not the only hateful Congo man in the race. Brumskine is worse.

  2. The fear of the congo man in this late day is still alive. It is a sad and divisive propaganda perpetrated by the Joe Boakai people and it is a shortsighted but very dangerous road that they are taking.

    • S.T.K; The foundation, for what’s happening today was laid by the Americo Liberians/Congo Elements of Liberia.Truth DEMOCRACY is in the making. For Liberia’s best interest, it got to be MAJORITY RULE. Get Real! The Americo Liberians/Congoes are the ones who voluntarily separated themselves from the INDIGENOUS, LIBERIAN PEOPLE. Under J.NYUMAH BOAKAI’S leadership, Liberia will become HOMOGENEOUS–One Liberia One People…

  3. Sayku, history cannot be erased just to please some of you. The cruelty, injustice, and humiliation perpetrated against Native Liberians by Congo-led governments is enough of a strong warning for Native Liberians to never vote for a Congo person to become president. I do not know why Congo people hate Native Liberians so much.

  4. You should ask yourself the same question: IN THE FIRST PLACE YOU CANNOT SPELL. WHEN YOU POINT A FINGER TO SOMEONE, DON’T YOU KNOW THAT THREE ARE POINTING BACK AT YOU? WE SHOULD DESIST FROM THE SAME OLD PRACTICES THAT HAVE PARALYZED OUR BELOVED COUNTY SO LONG….DIVIDED WE’LL FALL; UNITED WE ARE STRONG! MAY GOD PUT THE RIGHT PERSON IN THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT!

    • Rev . Bing; I should remind you, we’ve always been devided, because people like you and M.J, CHOOSE to separate yourselves from the majority of Liberians,the INDEGENOUS PEOPLE. This is not about spelling. People like you, hate realities. Stop discarding yourself, you are not a truth MAN of GOD. LOL! I CHALLENGE YOU TO A SPELLING CONTEST. BET! YOU WON’T WIN. LET’S GO FOR IT.

    • Rev. Bing; Indegenous/Indigenous, you have a choice. The same applies to Labor/Labour. If you prefer, I should write: “You and people like M.J, CHOOSE to separate yourselves from the majority of Liberians, the INDIGENOUS PEOPLE”. HAPPY? Now, SMILE…
