In Liberia, the beginning of President Joseph Nyuma Boakai’s presidency has been marked by turmoil as his senior officials’ voice their discontent over his nominated individuals. The chair of the ruling party, Rev. Luther Tarpeh, and a key supporter, Prince Y. Johnson, are both accusing President Boakai of failing to fulfill his campaign promises to his core supporters.
A major point of contention in these allegations is the influence of President Boakai’s eldest son, Joseph Boakai Jr., who is reportedly making decisions and favoring his friends over ruling party members. This has further strained the relationship between the President and his main supporters.
The verbal attacks on President Boakai from his key supporters are growing louder, highlighting the growing discontent within his own ranks. As the accusations and finger-pointing continue, it remains to be seen how the President will address these issues and unite his party moving forward.
Meanwhile, sources have revealed that President Boakai’s son Jospeh Boakai, Jr., otherwise called Jojo is being considered for the Prestigious Role as Maritime Commissioner, but that the announcement is being delayed amidst concerns of potential backlash.
