The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of one of Liberia’s successful microfinance loan enterprises known the Bukonjadeh Group of companies, Elton Datee Johns, is seriously cautioning all electorate, particularly young people of voting ages, not to allow themselves to be manipulated by power greed and selfish politicians with few dollars or cups of rice, to vote for their respective presidential candidates come November 14, 2023 runoff election.
He added that even though Liberians are living in a gullible society wherein most people can be easily carried away by greedy politicians for little or nothing because of abject poverty to sell their voting rights, the youthful generation should rise above such manipulation.
Johns maintained that the entire world is keenly watching all Liberians as the November 14 run-off election comes closer, noting that the electorate should turnout on that date and vote wisely for our country. “Let all of us not revert to the darkest days of the past, but put Liberia first and last, because it is the only country that we have” Johns intoned.
He also challenged members of the fourth estate (Press) to remain professional in their reporting on the November 14 electoral process. He also congratulated all winners of both Houses of the National Legislature during the October 10 elections.
The Bukonjadeh Group has further commended various civil society organizations, international observers, and all those who were directly or indirectly involved in constant advocacy for peaceful election, of which the Bukonjadeh Group was part of during the October 10, 2023 elections.
