-To Denounce Violence
With less than three months to Liberia’s presidential and legislative elections, a Baptist prelate is cautioning political parties and politicians to denounce any forms of violence during these electioneering periods.

Rev. Charles Diggs, the administrative pastor at the Providence Baptist Church in central Monrovia has sent out an open appeal to politicians in the country to stay clear of violence, as Liberia is the only place they have to protect.
“This is my appeal to politicians and political parties in our country, that as we draw closer to our elections period, all political parties and politicians should denounce violence,” Rev. Diggs appealed to politicians.
Preaching Sunday, July 16, 2017, when he delivered his sermon on the theme: “a passionate appeal, fulfill your promise,” Rev. Diggs noted that these elections are very critical to the growth and development of this country, and as such Liberians should be very careful is going about it.
The Baptist minister asserted that no one Liberian should think or feel that he/she is more Liberian than the other during these periods, but all must see each other as one.
The Baptist prelate at the same time called on the media landscape of the country to be balanced and accurate in its duties and avoid taking sides.
“I also want to take this time to appeal to both the print and electronic media houses in our country to be balanced in their analyses and avoid taking any side,” Rev. Diggs cautioned Liberian journalists.
He however warned Liberians to watch out for people he referred to as fake politicians who according to him would promise things they do not have the will power to fulfill, adding that they should not be voted into public offices.
Recently, some residents of Montserrado County district#14 booed Vice president Joseph N. Boakai who had gone in the area upon invitation to be endorsed by a group under the banner “Friends for the Future.” (3F)
The head pastor of the Providence Baptist church, Rev. Dr. Samuel B. Reeves has just been named as running mate to former Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) governor now standard bearer of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE), Dr. J. Mills Jones.
The two stand at risk of not contesting the impending October’s polls due to the Code of Conduct that prohibits all presidential appointees to contest in an election.
Jones tenure at the CBL expired last year and he became the standard bearer of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE), even though members of MOVEE have argued that Dr. Jones had no intention of running for the country’s highest seat, while Dr. Reeves was recently appointed by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to serve as co-chair on the Board of the Grand Bassa County Community College (GBCCC).
