Weah, in acceptance speech, welcomes Boakai, vows to protect rights and promote inclusivity

 

By Alvin A. Worzi and David S. Menjor

President-Elect, George M. Weah has raised a flag declaring no room for corruption under his administration, noting that those wishing to cheat the Liberian people will have no space in his government.

Addressing journalists, his partisans and supporters at his first victory press conference held at the headquarters of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) in Congo Town, Weah said his struggle over the years to become president had a singular, but very important mission of positively impacting the lives of grass rooters who are popularly known as the ‘masses.’

“I declare publicly that transforming the Lives of all Liberians is the single mission that focuses on my presidency. Over the next few days, we will assemble the government that is committed to fighting the ideas that inspired our campaign and dedicating our time to empowering the Liberian people,” he said to a rousing applause from the audience at the conference hall table.

Expressing his heartfelt gratitude to the people of his country for reposing their trust and confidence in him to serve them as President, he pointed out that the CDC could not have succeeded had it not been their commitment to the pursuit of change.

“I am truly blessed and humble, and want to thanks my wife and my family who have stood with me over the years. I would not have done this without their support. I want to thank the people of Liberia for this historic event. Thank you for joining me to celebrate the people of Liberia, because they are the true heroes and heroines.

“We want to say thank to the collaborating parties for joining the CDC.

“We want to say a resounding thank you to all the CDCians. Thank you to all the partisans who sustained the struggle over the years, for without them, this would not have been possible,” he said.

Giving reason while he wept when the National Elections Commission (NEC) on Friday, December 29 declared him the winner of the December 26 presidential run-off election, Weah said he wept because of the lives that were lost in the struggle to achieve the long fought-for victory.

“Two days ago, the world watched me cry. I did not cry because of my victory, but for those who lost their lives during the struggles for change over the years. They will never be forgotten and may God bless their souls,” he noted.

Speaking of some of the paths he and his Vice President-Elect, Madam Jewel Howard Taylor had to go through prior to the elections, he said God had their victory destined already.

“Five months ago, I traveled to Israel for the first time. So many times I was invited to Israel but it was not possible. Five months ago before these elections, I went to Israel. We got in the square approaching the Holy Wall. I did not know what to say, I did not pray for myself. What I wrote on my paper, me and my vice, who was right there when I was writing on my paper, with my cap on my head, I stood before the Wall while she was walking. She wrote before me. And I prayed for a peaceful Liberia. I prayed for calmness. I prayed for Coalition’s victory and I prayed for long life.

“I did not ask for anything from God but the protection of our nation and our people; a victory for the Coalition,” he said, adding, “Israel is alive. We went to the tomb of Jesus Christ. I went to visit the tomb and I went in the hole. The feeling from that place made me to hold my vice president’s hand and said we have to pray. We prayed, and I can tell you that Israel is alive and Jesus is alive.”

He said he has always relied on the divine guidance and protection from God to move on with all of his life’s activities. “I have walked with Jesus throughout my life and He has seen me through. I want to bless God,” he noted. He expressed his gratitude more to the Liberian people for preferring him for the Presidency, even though there were 19 other candidates seeking the same post.

On his receipt of outgoing Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai’s concession call, President-elect Weah said his arms are open to Boakai and he will always count on the wisdom of the outgoing Vice President, when needed to help build the country.

Weah said his government will build on the institutional gains made by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to improve the lives of the people of Liberia and build new institutions where necessary to protect rights and promote inclusivity.

He called on Liberians residing in diaspora to come home and contribute their expertise to the rebuilding and development of their homeland.

“To diaspora Liberians, Weah said, “Come home, this is a new dispensation. We need your ideas, skills, talents and expertise so that together we can build mama Liberia.”

He lauded Liberia’s development partners for the support provided over the years, especially for the past twelve years and called on them to renew the partnership in the interest of Liberia.

“To investors,” Weah said, “Liberia is open and ready for business. We will work to relax constraints to private investment, strengthen the legal and regulatory environments and protect profits.”

He noted that other political parties who contested the 2017 elections should see themselves as winners as well.

“To other political parties,” Weah continued, “we are not enemies. We welcome you with open harms as we all strive to build our country. These elections were a contest of ideas and not a clash of personalities. Our ideas are different, but do not mean that you don’t have a contribution to make.”

According to him, there is a need to secure Liberia’s peace and work harder towards national unity and development.

“To President Sirleaf,” Weah said, “We say thank you for the peaceful transition of power that is about to take place. We promise to follow your legacy in protecting the rights of Liberians and providing greater freedoms. Your job is not yet done as we will continue to count on you to strengthen our outreach with both development partners and investors in the direction of moving Liberia forward.”

“We want to thank the people of Liberia, especially the women of Liberia who stood with us in the battle,” he said, adding, “I can truly say the best way to celebrate the Liberian people is to improve their lives through public governance.”

  1. Congratulation Mr. President-elect, George Weah and your CDC Party!!!

    A wise person once said, “A great leader never sets himself above his followers except in carrying out his/her responsibilities.” In other words, a leader is never a master of the people but a servant of the people.

    You are setting the right tune: by tackling this insidious disease called CORRUPTION that is corroding the fabric of Liberia. However, be mindful of political parasites in your mist…..their aim is to gain favor with you at any cost. Surround yourself with good advisers: people with integrity and competency that will help you steer this old sinking ship called Liberia in the right direction towards peace, unity and economic prosperity.

    Yes indeed, Liberia needs all its citizens: those who stayed; those who left; those who were born abroad to help rebuild Mama Liberia. Nevertheless, there are many Liberian professionals, technicians, and entrepreneurs living in the diaspora who hold multiple citizenship from different countries. These Liberians, some were born abroad to Liberian parents, or born to one parent of Liberian descent and other nationality (like your children), who are plying their skills abroad.

    When will Liberia relax its restriction on granting these Liberians dual citizenship or abolishing its racial citizenship law that gives Liberian citizenship to only “people of Negro-decent” which is counter-productive to Liberia’s economic development in this modern era?

    On the contrary, there are other Africans and people of African-descent who come to Liberia and get Liberian citizenship but still maintain their citizenship of birth because their countries allow dual-citizenship despite obtaining Liberian citizenship. I hope this new administration will push the legislators to relax this antiquated law.

    For the sake of national unity, I also hope this administration will come up will mechanism to abolish the use of these derogatory and hateful names calling in Liberia: “CONQUA/CONGO vs. NATIVE/COUNTRY PERSON/PEOPLE” schism between the different ethnic groups in Liberia. We are all Liberians regardless of one’s national original, religion, sex, or political affiliation.

    One day, these Liberians and their children living in the Diaspora will return to their ancestral home land called Liberia. Will they be rejected? Will they be ostracized? Will they be unwelcome? Or, will they be called ……foreigners; Conqua, or non-Liberian or what?

    This new government should represent all faces (the rich, the poor, the homeless, the farmers, etc.) of what makes Liberia, Liberia: a great country where any black person who longs for freedom is welcome to become a Liberian Citizen.

    May God grant George Weah and his administration the wisdom to steer this old sinking ship called Liberia back towards economic prosperity.

    • Hey Alpha Conneh, make of list of those politicians who PROMISE that there will be “Corruption Will Have No Place in My Gov’t”. Then make another list of those politicians who have most consistently appointed born rogues to serve in their government!!

      Do not be surprised at seeing the same politicians on both lists!! If you don’t believe what I just said, watch and see who Weah appoint to positions of public trust.

      • @M.S.
        In a society like Liberia where there exists a profound scarcity of private sector jobs, I won’t be surprised of the proverbial “crabs-in-the-bucket” mentality when it comes to getting government jobs in Liberia.

        There is a serious political hustling going on in this new government for limited government opportunities in Liberia. This was eminent in President Sirleaf’s Government. It’s now obvious to see all those who jumped the political ship are now scrambling for new jobs in Weah’s Government.

        Such scrambling for government employment in Liberia creates all types of corrupt behavior………backstabbing; pay-to-play; sex-for-jobs; nepotism; cronyism; favoritism; and just to name a few.

        Not until Liberians create more jobs in the private sectors and move away from over-reliance and over-dependency on government jobs and foreign aid, the struggle to bring each other down (crabs-in-the-bucket mentality) will continue unabated: no matter who is elected president of Liberia.

        HAPPY NEW YEAR MARTIN SCOTT: THE LIBERIAN POLITICAL AGITATOR.

  2. GOD BLESS THE NEW LIBERIA,NEW LIFE, NEW NATION, NEW LIBERIAN, NEW WAY TO LOVE AND TO FORGET YOUR SELF AND YOUR ENEMIES. BUT LET ALL CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS IN LIBERIA TO PRAY FOR THE NEW ADMINISTRATION OF PRESIDENT GEORGE MANNEH WEAH FOR ALL LIBERIAN TO BE ABLE TO BUILD THE LIFE OF LIBERIAN.WITH GOD HELP WE WILL BE FREE TO LOVE.REMEMBER SKD ,D.TWEH,PRESIDENT OBAMA AND PRESIDENT GEORGE M.WEAH NOW.WITH GOD WE WILL OVER COME.PEACE, LOVE AND CARE.HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.YES WE CAN AND YES TAKES A VILLAGE.

  3. Call him, PRESIDENT GEORGE WEAH,
    Thanks to you Mr. President for inviting Liberians of all walks of life. Educated, illiterates, Muslims, Christians, people with no religious belief,”yana-boys”, porters, Bassa, Grebos, Conger ( Americo Liberians), etc….
    All hands on deck. However; the only hands that are not welcome on this DECK are that which belong to: bigots, nepotists, etc. We are all Liberians, no one is more Liberians than the other. An individual’s social status, level of education, financial status, affiliations, etc…..does not makes him/her to have priority, than the other.

  4. Brother Flomo,
    Since we are on the democracy train, let’s abide by its rules. Otherwise, we will be jettisoned off the train quickly. Okay, my fellow compatriot, let me tell you what I mean.

    George Weah is president-elect. When he gets sworn in, he’ll be referred to as President George Weah. Calling him president-elect is consistent with the ground rules of demoncracy”. If we call him Mr. President while he’s not yet inducted into office officially, we’ll be looked at with scorn internationally.

    Flomo, I can tell you’re very happy. Were you one of those Liberians who jumped up and down in the streets of Monrovia the other day man? Stop, stop man. Tell us the truth!

    Flomo, I wasn’t a supporter of Weah. But, like you and millions of Liberians, I am glad that we’ve got a new guy as president-elect. I am also happy because VP Boakai gave a good concession speech. But more importantly, I am very, very elated because my Liberian brothers and sisters showed the world that Liberians are very capable of going to the polls without causing violence. Oh, God knows how I feel.

    Flomo, the country of Ghana is usually referred to as a democratic nation in Africa. That’s because they’ve handled their elections and transferred power from one leader to the next, democratically. For heaven’s sake, Liberians have done it. When the Western media and others talk about “transfer of power”, Liberia will be in the mix. That’s why I am extremely happy.

    When it became abundantly clear that Weah had won, he said quite a few things. Two important aspects of his speech were:
    A. “Corruption must go” and
    B. “Educated and experienced Liberians
    must return home in order to get inv-
    voled in building and re-building
    our beloved country.”
    That was good. His was a clarion call for doing good business. It is hoped that he will not get suckered by corrupt individuals whose insatiable appetites are unquenchable.
    When I worked for the Chicago Board of Education in Chicago, it became a fact of life that all students, from K-12, must have their full set of textbooks. Guess what? We need that in Liberia. It can be done.

    Overspending of government’s scarce resources:
    Flomo, an idea came about for students to wear two sets of uniforms; example, Elementary students (K-8) and High school students, (9-12).

    Now, take a look at this:
    Automobiles for law makers and government officials …….
    Sometimes you will see some government officials with Toyota cars, some with American-made cars and some with South Korean or even Chinese-made cars.

    Flomo, in order that money could be saved, the government should practice or do what the schools of Liberia do.
    The government needs one set of automobiles for all lawmakers, and one set for all government officials.
    Let’s say for lawmakers…Japanese-made cars.
    For ministers………………..American-made cars
    For lower level officials……Chinese-manufactured cars. (just an example).

    It will be easier for auto parts to be ordered from one entity. But, if this guy has a German-manufactured car and she has a car from China and so on, it costs more.
    Let’s hope that Weah will be a different president. Let’s meet in Liberia soon to build and re-build our country.

  5. Happy New Year to the people of Australia.

    Also, there’s a small Liberian community in Sidney, Australia. In that small Liberian community is a guy named Mamadu Bah. Bah has not been heard from in recent days. Bah has maintained a low profile since the 26th of December up to this date. Ladies and gentlemen, if you or a comrade of yours has seen Bah during the past few days, please tell him I say congratulations for a hard fight. Bah’s ardent supporter (although he claimed not to be a staunch supporter of Weah) has won decisively. Tell Bah that I will support the policies of Weah if those policies are in the best interest of Liberia. If however, Weah’s policies are self-serving, I will not ride on his gravy train.

    Years of deprivation:
    I refer to Johnson-Sirleaf’s 12-year reign as “years of deprivation”. Yes, the majority of eligible Liberians who could have been brought into the labor force were completely left out to rot. Most of the deprived Liberians were fighters who forceably fought during the years of Liberia’s “uncivil” war. Because there were no schools in Liberia during those horrific years, it became difficult if not impossible for the youth to be considered for jobs in many areas of life. Some how, foregners were brought in to work. That’s what I heard. Don’t quite me on this one. The truth of the matter is that a whopping majority of our youth were unjustly deprived.
    Please ask Bah if it’s okay for me to send my resume directly to him in Australia. Maybe Bah’s influence (he’s got clout, ladies and gentlemen) will get me to the door for an interview.

    Happy New Year Everybody.

  6. The consequences of delaying this run-off election are enormous!!

    Yes indeed George Weah won a landslide victory in the rescheduled Dec.26th run-off election. We congratulate him on his win. However, moving the run-off election so late does not give Weah’s transitional team ample time needed, with barely three week left before his inauguration, to form his new government.

    Weah’s transitional team will need to scrutinize candidates for his cabinet positions: prospective candidates with the necessary qualifications to pass the senate confirmation. There is a strong possible that many Ministers in strategic positions with the Sirleaf government would have to stay-over until their replacements passed the senate confirmation. Government cannot operate in a vacuum.

    Our government has the audacity to procrastinate when it comes to preparing for major events: holding international conferences; international soccer matches; welcoming heads-of-states; and now the upcoming presidential inauguration barely three weeks away!

    It was pitiful to watch President Sirleaf’s last two inaugurations (2005 &2011) held under make-shift palm-thatched coverings to shield guests from the tropical sun. When will our government come up with contingency plans to build large modern auditorium like a civic center, or a large indoor public arena that is capable of accommodating more than five thousand people?

    When I was growing up in Monrovia in the sixties, Tubman had only three major places for large events: The Monrovia City Hall; The Executive Pavilion, and the Old Executive Mansion. Next, Tolbert built the OAU Conference Center in Virginia in 1979. Since then, not a single indoor large public building has been built to hold large conferences in Liberia. No wonder why hotel industries are making all the profits to host large government conferences in Liberia.

    Before I forget, where will the New Seat of government be since President Sirleaf ran away from the Executive Mansion to use the Foreign Ministry as her office? This is a national disgrace to have a new government installed without a functioning Executive Mansion……as the seat of Liberia’s government.

    Well, I guess George Weah’s inauguration will be held in from of the Temple of Justice under a hurriedly make-shift palm-thatched roof with the usual white plastic chairs as it was done for President Sirleaf.

    We came to better to upgrade our facilities just in case of increment weather on inauguration day.

    May God bless this new administration and my fellow Liberians in maintaining our newfound Democracy!

  7. Hello there brother Hney.
    Thank you so much for your writings. Over the past 2 to 3 months I’ve come to realized that you are a rational and critical thinker. Your analysis of issues are positive than more of my brothers’ view that I have read on this page or site.

    With the issue of supporting Weah’s presidency, I don’t want to go all the way back again. However; I was angry with our intellectuals. That the reason why I purged out of the intellecul communty to write and exposed them. Look, brother Hney, prior to, maybe July of 2017….if I was in Liberia, to speak out to Mr. Brimskins, Urey or Boakai, this election result would be different. Here is my plan, please read this very carefully. LIBERIA, like any other 3rd world country, doesn’t have:
    1) Strong democratic foundation
    2)Democracy is only strong, if the electorates are educated ( rationalizing the cratical aspect of understanding civil society).
    3) Our people vote on the basis of tribal, religious and ethnic or sectional alainces.
    I stand corrected on all these. However; these are my openion.

    If Brumskins, Urey, Cummings and Boakai had formed a coalition to support Boakai, and they all reach out to their various constituents to campaign for Boaikai, it would be different. I m not a mathematician, but the number I saw after Oct. 10, 2017, these guys would have had 657,000 votes Vs. CDC 594,000 + or- margin of erro.

    The work of an educated or intellectual, is to weight options and critically analyze, and bring out a positive result.
    The battle that was wage amongst those four guys before going into the Oct. 10, poll, is anything but friendship. All of a sudden, they became friends to take their case(s) to the supreme court. Well, it is true that the supreme court is the ARBITER of justice in the land, however; former FOES becoming co-joined plantiff, well, it is anyone guess to take it with weight.

    I know Jewel Howard step sisister, she was my class mate at LU, in 1998. She called me here one or two times, we talk. I may plan a trip to Monrovia in late March.
    Let keep in touch brother…we are all Liberian, after all.

    Happy New Year Liberia!!!!

  9. His Royal Excellency, General Bah,
    Happy New Year to you and your loving family in Sidney, Australia. Please extend my greetings!
    Your warm comments were positively received. Without a shred of doubt, you are a “down to earth guy”. Throughout all of 2017, I got under your skin without you getting upset at me. I’ve had a feeling that you’re very unflappable. May God bless you and your family richly.

    Hope sincerely that you’ll make your anticipated trip to Liberia in March. When you get to Liberia, I will instruct one of my siblings to locate you. When that happens, you will get my telephone number.

    I agree with the scenario you outlined as it relates to Brumskine, Urey and a cabal of other intellectuals who squandered a unique opportunity. But I would like to point out also that Johnson-Sirleaf had made life difficult for Boakai in an excruciating way. The very guy whom she endorsed, (Weah) had run against Johnson-Sirleaf’s son previously. Johnson-Sirleaf’s son was soundly defeated by Weah. Any rational living being would think that because her son was defeated by Weah, Johnson-Sirleaf would tarnish Weah’s reputation with maximum vengeance. Instead, Johnson-Sirleaf found it fit to punish VP Boakai who steadfastly supported her for 12 years than the gentleman who burned her son up politically. Politics makes strange bedfellows.

    Weah is our elected leader. Weah spoke patriotically when he won the run-off election. His message was populist in nature. As a consequence of that, his speech was received by all Liberians including those who were originally skeptical of him.

    With an absolute degree of certainty, I will assist in every conceivable way if I am asked. His call to build and re-build Liberia is a good starter!

    Happy New Year to you and family, General Bah.
    Happy New Year to all Liberians in the diaspora and in Liberia.

    Blessings

  10. Yes, Brother Hney,
    We are all in this together. I don’t know what actually happened between those two -old- best friends (Ellen and Boakai), it really robbed the old man of the presidency. This was a glorious chance for him. Even though Weah is popular, but with the margin of winning they would have had, there would have been no point of protest from CDC.
    Our intellectuals and politicians need to know that, even though, they are seeking jobs by running for elected offices, but it is more about the country, but not the individual. I rather put you in the front, and I stay at the back and steer your functions. Only one person can be in that chair at a time.

    Weah is immensely popular in Liberia and around the world. I don’t want to say anything critical of the President elect, but going against him in an elections, more work should have been done.
    Any way, I will write you before I leave for Monrovia. Maybe I will make her sister to know you sibling(s) in person. Her old phone is taken away.

  11. Well, I think unity, peace, and love is one of the up standing priority that supposed to be on our agenda today before any other procrastination, and even one of the most widely discussion pertaining to the subject of Liberia. It’s pitiful, and very sad seems the oldest West African nation’s first democratic transition of power since seventy years(70)of decades, since the suffering of the masses in darkness, without humanity, than we are to asked those doctorate degree holder, and educated eminent, what have they done for the nation’s and its people? Before going into detailed, I would like to congratulate the head of the parties leader George Mannah Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, and the people, of Liberia, including myself for the pitiful solidarity toward nation’s through the successful conclusion of the election for democratic change, and the nation’s flag for that privileged given us as Liberian, the sweetest land of liberty which brought us on that land, that had been in the hand of corruption for decades. I’m so grateful, seems the President, one of for most proponents of African who love, unity, has long emphasized the pressing need for unity on several occasions. However, instead of stressing mere political union, the President elect, has as a first step, consistently advocated an accelerated program of cultural, education, economic, scientific and technical cooperation as a firm basis of unity, peace,love, and solidarity of the nation’s. Because of the many requests which this service is constantly receiving from people, and institutions wishing to know President George Mannah Weah views on this important subject, has accepted the crying of the masses for working together as Liberian, so I think our differences should be put aside for God sake.

  12. Happy New Year Gen. Bah,
    I am most grateful to God because His grace is greater than all of our piccadillos. May 2018 be the very year that God Almighty will shower His blessings on you, me, our Liberian family and of course our country.
    I am off today. Everybody needs a break from his or her job. In that sense, it is my hope that you’re resting comfortably at home and relaxed. The body needs a break! Please be assured that my personal information will get to you soon. I mean it.

    What I have been observing is that Liberians are eager to work together for the better good of our country. Despite the fact that Weah was not their choice, it seems all of that hatred has been buried. I spoke to a Liberian guy a couple of days ago who thinks that Liberia will find its spot in the world of nations. I concur! We should, and we will! I don’t care what a person’s county of origin might be, Liberia is for Liberians. Whether a person is a Bassan, a Nimbaian, Grahn, an Americo-Liberian or a Vai person,…..what difference does it make?

    A Liberian is a Liberian. In fact, because of Weah, maybe our national soccer team, the Lone Star team, may spring into action once again. My God, go Lone Stars! Let’s beat those Ghanaians, Senegalese, Nigerians and those Zimbabweans!

    For the past 12 years, coins were not used in Liberia. The idea is that paper money is not coins. But strangely, Liberians use paper money as coins. When I visited Liberia a few years ago, I gave a handful of quarters (25 cents) to my neices and nephews. Listen to them….”uncle I wonn money”. So I began giving them quarters. But the catch is they didn’t know what quarters were. I couldn’t blame them at all. During the past 12 years, Liberia has had the “dubious distinction” of being the only country in Africa, if not in the world that has no coins. That’s rediculus! We need to have a prestigious distinction, not a dubious distinction! Finally, as a consequence of Liberians not transacting with coins, Liberia’s paper money is badly mutilated. That has to change. I am not being negatively critical. However, the truth must be told.

    My dear brother, General Bah, I break for now. Once again, my information will get to you. Hang in there.

    To Conneh, Sarra, Snyder, Tarlue, Flomo, Toe, Kollie, Scott, Freeman and others whose names I couldn’t recall, may God bless y’all.
    Happy New Year!

  13. Hello Mr.president George M.Weah thank for your speech relating to corruption but in as much you want corruption to stop in Liberia you need Justice labour and education to be strong in our country, congratulation to your New leadership.
