President George Weah is faced with the embarrassment of facing his kinsmen in the Southeastern region of the country after several failed promises. Weah, a former football star, had captured the hearts of many Liberians with promises of change and development during his first election campaign. Among his pledges was the construction of a much-needed highway that would connect the capital city to the southeastern region of the country, where he himself hailed from.

His promises struck a chord with the people, instilling hope and optimism for a brighter future and increased opportunities for development.

With the roads still in terrible condition and no progress made on the promised highway, President Weah has decided to acquire a helicopter for his campaign purposes. This helicopter would allow him to bypass the impassable roads and conveniently visit the southeastern region.
News of President Weah’s acquisition of a helicopter spread throughout the country, stirring mixed reactions among the Liberian people. Supporters argued that it would enable the president to fulfill his campaign promises and finally address the needs of the southeastern region. Critics, on the other hand, view the helicopter as a symbol of broken promises and a desperate attempt to regain the trust of the people.
As the campaign period unfolds, President Weah is embarking on a trip to the southeastern region in his new helicopter.

As the election day approaches, the people of the southeastern region find themselves at a crossroads. Some remained hopeful, willing to give President Weah another chance, believing that he would bring about the change they desperately needed.
