OPPOSITION FIGURE SAYS PRESIDENT WEAH SHOULD BE REPLACED FOR LACK OF VISION AND DIRECTION…  

Date:

LIBERIA – The standard bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) has said under the administration of the Coalition for Democratic Change living condition in Liberia has become very much difficult.

According to Mr. Alexander Cummings, for the last five years under President Weah, living conditions have gotten worse every year; and things have become harder and harder that there is hardly anything with which to celebrate.

Cummings delivering his Christmas Message on Thursday at the CPP’s headquarters in Sinkor, Monrovia, wishes all Liberians a Merry Christmas, adding “We know that for many of our people here at home, the year is ending just as it began in hardship,”

He admonished Liberians to replace President Weah and his Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) government in 2023, for what he calls a lack of vision and direction to lead Liberians to prosperity.

“On this fifth Christmas day under President Weah’s government, I know that too many children will go to bed hungry.”

“Families are still grieving the mysterious deaths of loved ones because their deaths can’t be reasonably explained, or properly investigated,” Cummings claimed.

“President Weah has ordered investigations into these cases, but he has not bothered to follow up with them. President Weah hopes that the public will forget about these cases, but reminds him that the grieving families can’t forget, and they will not forget,” the CPP’s leader noted.

He narrated that the streets and communities will not still be unsafe – and will continue to be taken over by ghettos and drugs.

“Joblessness, disappointment, and frustration will continue to be the story of many young people while prices of everything including food, rent, and transportation, will still be going up while salaries are going down.”

He alleged that on this fifth Christmas day, President Weah, Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor, Speaker Bhofal Chambers and Senate Pro-Tempore Albert Chie, and Deputy Speaker Fonati Koffa increased their share in the budget.

“Liberia has become a laughingstock and joke to the international community because President Weah’s CDC government thinks the governance of the country ‘is for play”, Cummings alleged

Mr. Cummings described the government as a kleptocracy, a government of thieves that are looting and damaging the wealth of the Liberian people with dry-face corruption.

“My people, the world is laughing at us. And will continue to laugh at us and take us for a joke because … we have a president who thinks the job of the President da play-play thing.

Accordingly, Cummings claimed that Liberian people continue to suffer because no serious investor will come to invest in a country with a play-play leader who is doing nothing to stop stealing from the people because the President is stealing or benefiting from the stealing of the Liberian people’s money.

“The Bible rightly prophesied that the people will perish when their leaders have no vision; when [a] leader, like President Weah, does not know what he is doing or supposed to be doing,” he added.

“… recently irresponsibly, President Weah left the country for 48 days and wasted the country’s money jumping from place to place. President Weah used his 48 days outside the country watching his son play football, enjoying himself, and came back to his “Miami’’ with more lies, and pictures for his Facebook album.

“This is a season of joy and I want to wish all Liberians a Merry Christmas. But, we know that for many of our people here at home, the year is ending just as it began in hardship,” Cummings’ statement is contained when he delivered his Christmas Message on Thursday, December 22, 2022.
