In so doing, we feel much more obliged to provide guidance for our fellow compatriots,” Bishop Nimely said.“We painstakingly evaluated all the presidential aspirants on the basis of love for nation, patriotism, demonstrated capacity, sober-mindedness and a national vision in which every individual’s vision is reflected, and found Dr. Jones as unmatched,” he said.Bishop Nimely noted that the above-mentioned characteristics are virtues befitting a national leader that will lead “us as a nation from the valley of despair and hopelessness to a veranda of possibilities and hopefulness,” and as such the group has resolved to support the presidential aspirations of Dr. Joseph Mills Jones.“We are prepared, when the time comes, to galvanize more support and campaign for you, Dr. Jones, everywhere to win the October 10 presidential elections. We will leave no stone unturned; we stand by you, Dr. Jones, for you are the hope of Liberia,” Bishop Nimely said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Dr. J.
