Jones Presents Election Certificate To District

By Yawah Jaivey in Kakata, Margibi County

Margibi County district #2 representative-elect, Ivar K. Jones, has presented his “certificate of election” to the people of his district.
At an elaborate program held Saturday at Harbel’s Field Hall, Jones presented the certificate through the religious leaders, becoming the first lawmaker-elect in the county to do so.“You elected me, I bring my certificate to present to you,” he declared.
The young entrepreneur turned politician told hundreds of citizens who graced the occasion that the presentation of certificate to the religious leaders of the district was in appreciation to them (citizens) for interceding on his behalf during the conduct of the October 10 polls.
Jones, in a bid to seek the intervention of God,entreated the religious leaders for their harmonization and continued supports through intercession.
He at the same time extended gratitude to the citizens for reposing trust and confidence in him to lead them for the next six years, promising to uphold the district’s development agenda proffered to them (constituents) through his manifestos.
Jones said: “The first line in our platform speaks and maintains that we will give equal opportunity to all and the qualification for that is you should be a Liberian; it is against such backdrop that we have gathered both Muslim and Christian leaders here today to present this certificate. This certificate I don’t deserve it, it is not a right neither a privilege, but is by the grace of the Almighty God because I have never been a politician before and I say again it is His grace because I competed among people who understand the dynamics of Margibi County politics more than I do.”
The Margibi County representative-elect said that without divine wisdom to lead the district, those development issues outlined in his manifestos will never be actualized, adding that those developments promised the people are not intended to offend anyone, but to improve the lives of the people of his district, Margibi County and Liberia at large.
He reminded the religious leaders that as the elections are over, it is now their responsibility to assist the leadership of Margibi County and Liberia to bring unity and reconciliation among them, thus aiding to foster the needed developments.
In a related development, Jones barely a week following the naming of his office staffers, used the occasion to unveil them andat the same time called on his competitors in the October 10 polls to put aside their political differences and join him to propel and continue on the development needs of the district championed by his predecessor.
“We are counting on everyone to work along with this leadership to ensure that district number two is a better place for all of us. We believe that by presenting this certificate to the Almighty God, He will be with this team, district number two, Margibi County and Liberia,” he maintained.
For his part, Sheik Jusuif Moseray, on behalf the Muslims of the district said he was not surprise of the Margibi County electoral district number two Representative-elect for showing his gratitude because from the onset of his political endeavor, he (Jones) was the only candidate that requested them to intercede on his behalf and craved their supports as religious group. Moseray praised the Muslim Community for the huge supports given to Jones and challenged them to collectively work with him in order to foster the development agenda of the district and subsequently Margibi County.
He, however, expressed anticipation that Jones will not disregard the engagements and interactions with his constituents in time to come.
Speaking on behalf of the Christian Community, Apostle William N. Johnson said they were glad that their Rep-elect would return to them with appreciation, noting that this was the first time for an elected official to come back with “certification of election” for the religious community to receive and at the same time request them to intercede on his behalf.
