‘JOE BOAKAI IS ALIVE AND KICKING’ – UNITY PARTY RESPONDS TO CONCERNS OVER FORMER VP’S HEALTH CONDITION

By Olando Testimony Zeongar

LIBERIA – Amid mounting public concerns regarding the well-being of the Standard Bearer of the main opposition Unity Party (UP), former Vice President Ambassador Joseph N. Boakai, the UP has clarified that he’s alive and kicking.

According to a statement issued late Tuesday, 10 January 2023, Unity Party informed the public that on Sunday, 8, January, the UP Standard Bearer checked into a local hospital in Monrovia, for precautionary observation after he felt light fever.

“The UP informs the public that Amb. Boakai is fine and in good health,” the statement indicated.

Multiple Unity Party sources have also confirmed that JNB is now feeling better and is expected to be discharged from the hospital soon.

The UP statement issued by its National Secretariat noted that the party was delighted that its Standard Bearer sought medical attention at a hospital in Liberia, unlike officials of the CDC-led government, who the Unity Party accused of being constantly flown on the next available flight to foreign hospitals.

Most recently, it can be recalled, the Minister of Finance and Development Planning, a ranking member of the ruling party CDC, Samuel Tweah, was reportedly flown to Turkey for advanced medical treatment, following a car accident involving him, his wife and two others on the Lofa – Bong Counties highway.

The Unity Party quoting its Standard Bearer in the statement added that Ambassador Boakai stated that he wants to continue seeking medical attention in Liberia, adding that he will do everything possible when he becomes president of the country that during his administration, he will make hospitals in the nation what he called destination of choice for all classes of Liberians seeking medical attention.
The UP emphasized that it is deeply gratified by the the myriad of concerns from its partisans, well-wishers and supporters alike regarding the health condition of Joe Boakai.

Meanwhile, the party is calling on the general public to remain hopeful of a better agenda for Liberia’s transformation guided by the able leadership of its Standard Bearer, Amb. Joseph Nyumah Boakai.

  1. The idea that Unity Party is prepared turn our country over to an 84/85 year old man, who will be 90 years old when his term is over speaks volumes. Something is seriously wrong with US Liberians. And they tell us that they mean well for Liberia.
