The wife of the late former President Moses Z. Blah, Madam Nettie Z. Blah, has called on President George Weah to provide security guard service at her residence in Paynesville City, outside Monrovia.
Madam Blah said she once pleaded with the office of former President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf for security personnel at her home, because of her status as a former First Lady of the Republic of Liberia, “but Madam Sirleaf and her government refused to assign a security guard to my house.”
She told the Daily Observer recently at her residence in the Soul Clinic Community in Paynesville that she had been overlooked since, following the death of her husband, who died on April 1, 2013, at mid-60. He took over from Charles Taylor on August 11, 2003. Under international pressure, Taylor ceded the presidency to Blah and fled into exile for Nigeria.
She predicted that Liberia’s present leadership will go through a successful term, because the country’s solution is in the hands of the Almighty God, who directed Liberian voters to elect their leaders without partiality.
She meanwhile said the mistakes of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf should not only be spoken of unfavorably, but also her developmental activities over the past 12 years, which along with her tolerance kept peace in the country, should be shown thanks and recognition.
Madam Blah said several ministers of the Gospel are always committing the leadership and Liberians into the hands of God because righteousness absorbs the nation and the heart of a king is in God’s hands.
She said Liberia has just started receiving her blessings from the Lord, because the country needs patriotism to develop and that Liberia’s development is in the hands of the Almighty God. She also called on Liberians to do away with violence and follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ
