MOVEE Chairman, Dee Maxwell Kemayah, with standard bearer, Dr. J. Mills Jones, during a recent campaign rally in August 2017.The fact that the standard bearer of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE), Dr. Joseph Mills Jones, sailed smoothly through the National Elections Commission confirmation process in spite of the controversial Code of Conduct, which many thought would have hooked him of all aspirants, has reinvigorated his political prowess and put his supporters, mainly the marketers, ‘in zico’ (great zeal or high morale) to canvass for his presidential bid.Women in the Gobachop, Coalfield, Red Light and Ground Pea markets in Paynesville Community, outside Monrovia, thanked Dr. Jones for providing them the enabling environment to do business and promised to ensure that he is elected president.The women, who were taken by a surprise visit from Dr. Jones and his entourage on Monday, said Jones has “elevated” them, not only through the provision of a loan scheme when he served as Central Bank Governor, but also for playing a significant role in taking them from the “ground to the table,” which they said has greatly impacted their lives.It was Dr. Jones and his running mate, Dr. Samuel Reeves’s first visit to the area since campaigning began on July 31. The Market Superintendent, Madam Sangai Dolley, showered praises on Jones, and said God will definitely answer his prayer to become President of Liberia. Madam Dolley said the marketers can trust Dr. Jones with the leadership of the country, not just for the good he has done for market women across the country before and after he emerged on the political scene, but “because he is a man of his word.”“We are for you today and tomorrow, and will make sure that we vote for you, because you know what the poor people are going through,” she declared to a round of applause.In response, Dr. Jones said the marketers should by now be able to engage in wholesale trade, and encouraged them not to limit themselves to just being retailers. He promised them that under a J. Mills Jones presidency, the government will work hard to improve their lives by providing them more business opportunities and strengthening their trades by constructing facilities to include warehouses to preserve some of their perishable goods.“We understand you were not expecting us here today, but we are here and so we wanted to just come in and see you. We come as people who believe in change that is why we are not doing things the same old politicians’ way. We are different people with a different ideology to develop this country for all to enjoy and benefit from the resources,” Jones told the marketers. “I am not a politician and neither is my running mate, but it is time for us to change Liberia. It is not the same old politicians that will change this country,” he said.Jones said under his stewardship, marketers in the 15 counties will see more stimulus packages to boost their earnings, much more than when he was at the Central Bank of Liberia as the governor. “We want to tell you that when you put us in the Mansion, nobody will be vex with us to stop (what we are doing) at that time; in fact, we know it will increase,” Jones added, to the delight of the marketers who chanted the name “Poverty Doctor”.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
