MONROVIA – As political campaign activities for the 2023 elections heightened, a pro-government radio presenter, Abraham Wheon, and a segment of Joseph N. Boakai’s Unity Party campaign team, the Research Team led by Martin K.N. Kollie, are engrossed in a war of words, as the latter today replied the former over his recent condescending approach to JNB.
Wheon, in reaction to multiple criticisms mostly from UP partisans and supporters of Boakai regarding the pro-government radio station talk show host’s failure in a public exam recently administered by the Liberia National Bar Association (LNBA), among other things retorted that JNB, who he described as a “dead man walking” would never become president of Liberia, adding that the UP standard bearer’s political life span has just 60 days left.
“Boakai will not be Liberia’s President because his political demise life span has just 60 days left,” averred Wheon, who is noted for mudslinging JNB and the Unity Party in favor of incumbent President George Weah and his CDC-led government.
Howbeit, Martin K.N. Kollie, chair of the UP National Campaign Research Team has replied Wheon, with Kollie stating that the Boakai campaign research team is digging into the file of the pro-government radio station’s talk show host.
He claims the JNB campaign research team has found that this is not Wheon’s first time failing a public test, indicating that the talk radio presenter once miserably failed the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) public exam administered to High School students when he sat the test as a 12th Grade student of the St. Philip’s Ecumenical High School, located at Gardnersville, Liberia.
Kollie, who slammed Wheon as being a “public exam flunky,” accused the talk show host of often hiding behind journalism to collect perks from the George Weah-led government.
