Why We Chose Mills Jones

Simply put, it is   because he has been milling around the country doing what no one in Liberia’s history has ever done:  empowering ordinary Liberians everywhere to assert their economic independence by opening and operating    their own businesses.

The police in many countries, Liberia included, have a bad name.  They are usually given to corruption, extorting money from motorists, especially the most vulnerable—commercial and ordinary drivers, many of whom are often found without operating licenses.  But that does not matter if they are willing to offer the officer “something.”  This is dangerous because unlicensed drivers may lack the experience in driving techniques, and the discipline required of licensed ones.  This could lead to accidents and criminal activity.

The Rev. Kortu Brown, NCC’s first vice president, in an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer last week, expressed his views on issues ranging from Malawu to immense poverty in the country to the mysterious death of Representative Fayiah Saah Gbollie to Ellen Corkrum and dual citizenship.
