OPPOSITION LEADER MUSA BILITY URGES UNITY AGAINST BOAKAI IN 2029

Date:

MONROVIA – Although Liberia’s presidential and legislative elections are still months away, opposition leaders are warning the ruling Unity Party government under President Joseph Nyuma Boakai of a challenging battle in 2029 due to its failure to improve the lives of Liberians. Representative Musa H. Bility, Chairman of the opposition Liberty Party (LP), recently emphasized this at the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) Militant Day Program, stating, “We will work together to remove the Unity Party in 2029.”

Bility, who represents Nimba County District #7, accused President Boakai and his Unity Party of attempting to unseat Speaker J. Fonati Koffa due to his lack of support for the government’s agenda. He insisted that the House of Representatives has strong confidence in Speaker Koffa’s leadership, and that less than 25% of the House would vote against him. He urged the opposition to unite in their efforts to defeat the Unity Party in 2029, emphasizing that without collaboration, the opposition would not be able to gain state power.

He commended CDC members for their resilience and patriotism, attributing the country’s peace to their acceptance of defeat in 2023 and willingness to concede, something he believes the Unity Party would not have done. Bility emphasized the importance of avoiding violence and expressed his support for Speaker Fonati Koffa’s leadership, describing it as essential for the government’s functionality.

Bility warned that any attempt to disrupt the Legislature would destabilize the entire country. He noted that the 2023 elections resulted in a divided government, with one major party controlling the Executive Mansion and the other the Capitol Building. He argued that any effort to change this arrangement would be an attempt to overturn the election’s outcome, and the opposition would strongly resist such moves.

Meanwhile, President Boakai is facing increasing criticism for his administration’s missteps in its first seven months. Critics are particularly concerned about issues of accountability, transparency, and openness. As the 2029 elections draw nearer, these issues are likely to be central to the opposition’s campaign against the Unity Party.
