MONROVIA – Former Vice President and Unity Party (UP) standard bearer Joseph Nyuma Boakai has recruited the former General Auditing Commission (GAC) Auditor General John S. Morlu, II, as Consultant to the Rescue Campaign Committee.
Making the announcement yesterday Tuesday, July 11, 2023, Ambassador Boakai said Mr. Morlu will not only lead the Rescue Campaign fundraising efforts but will provide financial management insights as a Consultant to the Campaign Committee.
“Mr. Morlu’s renowned expertise in combating corruption and his deep understanding of financial management make him an invaluable asset to our team. Together, we will make significant strides towards our shared goals, inspiring trust and confidence in our supporters.
“We are grateful to have Mr. Morlu on this crucial journey towards a more prosperous Liberia,” Boakai enthused.
Responding immediately to his preferment, AG Morlu said he is appointed to build and manage the fundraising technology solution for the Joe Boakai campaign, therefore the Liberian people and everyone who believes in a better Liberia should join the campaign and donate their resources and time, confident that their money and effort will be safe in good hands.
“We have to be at the table, take initiative and support the process, or else incapable, incompetent, grossly unprofessional, and people of the lowest character will constantly decide your life for you.
“Let’s stop talking and talking and talking about how the Weah government has messed things up and taken Liberia backward 100 years, with multiple misadventures and thievery. I am tired of hearing the complaints. Just take a stand, get involved, and take action. Now is the moment for the capable and competent to consolidate efforts and be available to rescue Liberia.
“Donate whatever you have. Donate something now or volunteer. Just donate and rescue the country.
“You can trust your hard-earned donations will be 100% protected and used for the purpose for which you have given,” Morlu said.
Providing a breakdown of his fundraising strategy, the former Auditor General disclosed that the Rescue Campaign’s overarching strategy will be geared towards campaign infrastructure; campaign in all parts of Liberia; protecting votes – poll watchers and voter roll monitoring; and Get Out the Vote (GOTV).
“Choose and donate now for Joe Boakai. You can choose to make your donation anonymous or public. In any event, only Joe Boakai will see your donation and thank you for your support. We do not want to see you unjustly punished by Weah for your right to donate. Be not wary. Be courageous.
“For God’s sake, stand up and do something to rescue Liberia. We ask you to donate to Joe Boakai. It is essential to ensure that your donation goes to a reputable and transparent process like the one we have created.
“Also, consider volunteering your time and skills to support the Joe Boakai campaign. You can offer assistance with organizing events, canvassing, vote monitoring, poll watching, phone banking, or providing technical expertise.
“Relevant government experience counts. Real education and proven skills matter. Joe Boakai is proven and tested and has enormous integrity and standing.
“Liberia is heading in the wrong direction. Rescue it with your heart, soul and donation of your money and time,” AG Morlu intoned.
