Four politicians, among them former presidential candidate, Reverend Hananniah Zoe, yesterday endorsed the presidential bid of Vice President Joseph N. Boakai, promising to go all out and fish for votes that would give a one round victory to Mr. Boakai in the ensuing October elections.

Rev. Zoe, former presidential aspirant of the opposition Liberia Empowerment And Development Party (LEAD); Magnus Nian, former Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) director of finance committee; Valentine Sheaky, principal, Free Pentecostal Global Mission High School; and Byhewit Mohammed Dukuly, former chairman for the disbanded opposition National Union for Democratic Progress (NUDP) – Lofa branch, endorsed the Veep’s presidential bid at the ruling Unity Party (UP) headquarters in Congo Town, Monrovia.

The four men’s decision comes barely a week after 19 senators endorsed Boakai’s presidential bid.

For Mr. Nian, he not only endorsed Mr. Boakai, but also joined the UP, “because I have a specific message, that is: to deploy my God-given political propaganda machinery that would undo any party in opposition to Mr. Boakai.”

For Mr. Sheaky, who had the crowd on their feet shouting mixed political slogans in unison, his pledge was unwavering, “because I will not only endorse Mr. Boakai, but to go all out and campaign on his behalf so that the party can give the opposition a one round knockout in October.”

For Mr. Dukuly, who referred to Veep Boakai as his uncle, he expressed gratitude to many persons including some of his former political rivals that have so far endorsed Boakai’s political interest.

“Having observed some activities of political parties for the past months, I can assure anyone including the very opposition members that we will rise up in the name of UP, Lofa solidarity and the agenda to develop the country, and defeat those who dare challenge us at the October polls,” Mr. Dukuly declared.

In his endorsement statement, Rev. Zoe said Vice President Boakai so impacted his life that he finally decided to endorse his presidential bid.

“The Boakai team is capable to cross the bridge of delayed developments, and no doubt, to vibrant prosperity through which every Liberian will have a part to contribute to the country’s growth and transformation,” Rev. Zoe told the gathering.

Despite the fact that his turn to speak was characterized by intermittent political slogans, UP chairman Wilmot J.M. Paye assured a place in the party for those that crossed over.

“You are joining a party with no class system, but one big family of highly committed and dedicated partisans who uphold nothing but Liberia’s agenda where every tribe is included,” he said.

Rev. Zoe’s father, Manbiah Zoe, ended yesterday’s ceremony in a self-composed song backed by more political slogans.

In a related development, “majority members of the House of Representatives” yesterday postponed their support to the presidential bid of the Vice President until Tuesday, May 23.

Representative Prince Moye (Bong County District #2) told the Daily Observer that the lawmakers postponed the endorsement program with the intent to rally the support of many of their colleagues to get on the list of lawmakers who want to endorse Boakai’s presidential bid.

“The endorsement program is postponed to Tuesday, May 23, and we hope to recruit about 40 of our colleagues,” Rep. Moye said.

  1. A candidate (Hananiah Zoe) who did not get even 0.1 % of vote in the last election and few other unknown guys wishing to perpetuate A CORRUPT AND WICKED ELITIST REGIME PARTY under which whistle-blowers and critics of government disappear to only be found brutally slaughtered apparently upon the machinations of the very Unity Party regime, IS SIMPLY FOOLISH AND WICKED.

    Rev. Hananniah Zoe´s support of such a wicked party and regime speaks volumes of his Hananniah´s true character and intellect!

    Hananniah Zoe needs to read the book of AMOS, ISAIAH, or JERRYMIAH and see how THE HOLY BIBLE DETESTS SUCH CANDIDACY AS VP JOSEPH BOAKAI´S AND WARNS AGINST ASSOCIATING WITH SUCH A REGIME AND PARTY! Hananniah Zoe, remember, God is neither deceived nor mocked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. The wise man changes; the fool does not. Rev. Zoe has truly adhered to the Biblical precept to follow a wise leader. For, Joseph Boakai, as Joseph the dreamer, has come to lead the Liberian people out of the captivity of poverty and corruption. Thanks to the Rev. and the other gentlemen.

    • Was Joseph the dreamer or the dream interprater?

      It will take 12 years for this other Joseph to start his “dreaming?”…like dreams become reality by wishful thinking.

      We do not need another very old president.

  3. Hananniah Zoe is simply a greedy gravy seeking guy masquerading as pastor! Joseph Boakai is too drenched in the human blood shed by his Unity Party regime to lead any government!

  4. For the few who are critical of J.Nyumah Boakai, let me remind them; you can’t blame a substitute player ie, J. Nyumah Boakai who is/was not a key player, for how the game was played. You bet! JNB has his own game plans and his own mind. At home and abroad, JNB has an over whelming support. No doubt! None of the other Presidential Candidates compares to JNB. JOIN THE WINNER; FOR A BETTER DIVIDEND. Vote for J.Nyumah Boakai, President; Republic of Liberia. My “Highest Esteems” to our four distinguished citizens for their rightful decisions. Thanks! For Endorsing our MAN, The Honorable J.Nyumah Boakai.

  5. JNB IS A TRUE PATRIOT IN THE TRUE LIBERIAN CONTEXT. HE IS AN ALTERNATIVE TO OTHER POLITICAL ARRANGEMENT. I BETTER CHOOSE BOAKAI FOR A BETTER LIBERIA IN ORDER TO ENHANCE LIBERIA PROGRESS. AMONG THE FEW NATURAL BORN LIBERIANS, HE POSSESSES THE PEDIGREE OF A SELFLESS AND SACRIFICIAL LEADER IN ENSURING THAT LIBERIA BECOMES A PROSPEROUS NATION. UNDER UNCLE JOE, WE ENVISAGE A BETTER LIBERIA WITH TRANSFORMED MINDS PREPARED TO MOVE OUR MOTHERLAND INTO THE NOBLEST DESTINY. VOTE BOAKAI ,VOTE LIBERIA

  6. Patriots fight corrupt and despotic goverñments! Throughout Joseph Boakai’s career he has and continue to bè an accomplice and a beneficiary of government! His records at ĹPMC, Àgriculture Ministry, ànd as ambassador when he assisted Ellen to buy arms and train rebels to fight their wars! His leadership at corrupt UNITY PARTY is the proof that Joseph Boakai’s corrupt mindset and selfish character against the people!

  7. A vote for Boakai is a vote to continue “business as usual.” Do not expect any change if you vote for Boakai. The massive endorsement by the group of degenerates at the capitol building is evident of that.

  8. Boakai is the right person at this time. Do not be deceive by anyone . Bravo to Rev. Zoe and others who made the wise decision.
