ISSAC JACKSON: WE RENEW OUR PRAYERS FOR OLDMAN JOE BOAKAI’S RECOVERY

Date:

An opinion by Isaac W. Jackson, Jr.

Once more, we renew our prayers for Oldman Joe Boakai’s recovery, thereby leading to good health.  In this context, we are constrained to remind the Liberian electorate of the aphorism which states: “No matter how good you are, if you stay for too long you spoil it; a good dancer must know when to leave the stage.”

Aware that his health was declining rapidly, Professor Dr. Amos Claudius Sawyer complied with the above-mentioned aphorism when he retired with absolute dignity amidst huge applause from respectable individuals across the globe. Conversely, this attitude and mindset of “Après moi, le déluge” will not help our dear country.  Let’s reason together for a better Liberia.

  • Save
Mr. Isaac W. Jackson, Jr.

I note with deep regret the verbal aggressions being meted out against Sis. Leymah Gbowee. God grants that in our days, the culture of intolerance may not rise and/or prevail. Comrades, if we underestimate and misdiagnose what we are up against, then I am afraid, our people will continue to trek the dark corridors of poverty, hunger, and diseases.

Anyway, I wish to announce that I will be returning to the land of my ancestors soon! The need to buttress the US Government’s efforts to promote democratic accountability and transparency in Liberia cannot be overemphasized.

It is my established view that for democracy to thrive, patriotic citizens must make the ultimate sacrifice. Hence, my unwavering decision to return to our beloved country this weekend! #standupforliberia
