ggc(LINA) – A Group of Liberians, under the banner of Global Grand Gedeans in Support of Joseph N. Boakai, has presented a statement of support to Vice President Joseph N. Boakai, pledging to rally all Grand Gedeans to champion his presidential bid come 2017.

The Group said the membership of the organization is based in the UK, USA, Australia, and Africa from diverse political parties, social backgrounds and whose single motive is to make Joseph N. Boakai President of Liberia in 2017.

According to the organization’s Chairman, Amos Zleh, the membership comprises professionals and non-professionals, youths, students, traditional and religious groups, women groups and marketer, among others.

The organization said their support for Vice President Boakai is based on the facts that his past service records are distinctive and admirable and has demonstrated leadership in the Liberian Senate and is properly coordinating between the Senate and the executive and that there has been no trace of corruption or financial impropriety throughout his service to the nation.

The delegation comprised of Ernest Waylee, Secretary General of the group; Paul Thomas, and Amos Zleh, who were accompanied to the Office of the Vice President by Mr. Peter Solo, Superintendent of Grand Gedeh County.

Vice President Boakai in response referred to the statement as an “honest act” and spoke of the importance of such a relationship that will bring about trustworthiness, development, and dignity to the nation.

Vice President Boakai said we have to bring the country together, as it is about bringing joy to others in a small nation that easily connects.
