A civil society group the Societal Reform initiative of Liberia said it attention is seriously drawn to expression of support for Vice President Joseph Boakai’s presidential bid, made by one Crayton Duncan at the expense of former Central Bank of Liberia(CBL) Executive Governor Dr. Joseph Mills Jones. The group said such expression of support by Duncan, accompanied by some utterances that termed to demean the character and rubbish the political ambition of Dr. Jones is regrettable, diabolical, unfortunate and one embellished with high degree of ingratitude and disloyalty.
“By this, he tries to place a dent on the political intention of Dr. Jones to contest the presidency of Liberia,” the group said. The Societal Reform Initiative said this unappreciative man, who prior to being picked by Dr. Jones to serve as his Chief of Office Staff had nothing, but rather a mere truck loader in the United States, struggling to make ends meet. The group said Mr. Duncan was not only a truck loader in the US, but even at the Central Bank where he was employed as Director of Communications, he made no impact; rather his job was performed sometime by folks from different departments. More than that, the group said as Chief of Office Staff in the Governor’s office, Duncan could not take and produce a fitting Board Meeting Minutes and so he will be of no asset to Mr. Boakai’s campaign but a liability to his pocket if he has money to spend, saying “What a mere hustler and cash-driven individual he is!”
“So then, what has motivated him to castigate or turn against his maker? What moral standing does he have to question the credentials and ability of Dr. Jones to lead this country?” the group wondered. “In fact, what level of influence arid support does he have in Sinoe to present a candidate to the people to be elected as president when he is not a son of that county? How can Sinoeans trust this surrogates with a representative seat at the National Legislature, as he is seeking when he has proven to be grossly inconsistent, hypocritical and deceptive in his political sojourn?” the group questioned.
The group informed Crayton Duncan that his action and posture against Dr. Jones who immensely contributed to his life’s success is devilish, condemnable, ill-fated and one marked by serious acts of ungratefulness and lack of appreciation. Furthermore, the group promised Mr. Duncan that his bad day will break when they will not only expose him, but deal with his political recklessness so much so that he knows that even the dog in the street has owner as well as a crazy man such that when hit by a car, his relatives and friends will come to claim his funeral expenses. The group said gone are the days when political vagabonds and vagrant will masquerade within the body politics of Liberia.
The Societal Reform Initiative of Liberia wondered why will this morally bankrupt, criminal hearted young man speak disparagingly and turn to litter his former boss, Dr. Joseph Mills Jones; a man of integrity, credibility and proven record of positive performance. The group concluding urge all Sinoeans and Liberians at large not to give credence to this disloyal creature whose act of betrayal will forever be recorded in the political history of Liberia.
