PATRIOTS WILL CONSIDER YOU AN ENEMY IF YOU ELECT WEAH IN 2023  

Date:

An opinion by Matthew Nyanplu

If you elect George Weah in 2023 to lead the country, we patriots will consider you an enemy of the Liberian people.

You will doom the people to years of economic hardship and political calamity from which the country will not recover in a generation or more.

We do not hate George Weah as his fanatics retort, nor his officials. His conduct since 2018 has demonstrated to us that he is more than a governance disaster.

Mr. Matthew Nyanplu, a Liberian journalist and political commentator

He belongs in the private sphere with the largesse and bootlicking he needs to massage his ego…that is all Weah needs. He does not need our Presidency. It is only a means to the easy wealth he enjoys along with his fixers.

Those who still advocate Weah’s leadership after all the disasters we have witnessed over these last five years, do so, as we said before in 2017 and will still do in 2023, for easy access to easily looted, and easily plundered public wealth.

I am also of the belief and I implore you, a consecutive second term has not helped Liberia per our recent history, and we should not experiment with it with Weah however dejure constitutional it may be.

Those elected must exit after one term and fight to earn the confidence of the people to return. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s second term was worse than her first.

Weah should not get a second term by default.

Everyone who is fortunate to become President as we consolidate democracy in Liberia must do so for one term. There is a “don’t care spirit” that sets in after a second term is secured. The effects are retrogressive.

Weah should not get a second term.

Fellow Liberians, we must make sure of that.
