  1. It’s easy to come out take a few pictures and throw jabs. For a man who will “assume” power at 83/84 years old and and turn over @ “90 years”, what is not so easy is for him to stay healthy and energetic for ANOTHER 6 years. Liberians are a completely different breed of people. For the record, It’s not just Leymah Gbowee that thinks Boakai is too old. It’s the majority of Liberians, and explains part of the reason he lost the first time. Not many young people were enthusiastic about an 80 year-old man becoming president. Liberia has a very youthful population and they definitely will not fall in line with this UP people/Urey/Costa conspiracy. Right now, it’s the senility of old age has clouded Boakai’s wisdom and patriotism. But the voters will have the last say, eventually.
