  1. If Mr. George Manneh Tarpeh Weah and his CDC-led Government want to be seen, respected, and treated differently, he and his Government will need to terminate Justice Minister Frank Musa Dean, Finance Minister, Samuel D. Tweah, Minister of State, Nathaniel F. McGill, and restructure the entire Ministry of Justice and instruct the office of the Solicitor General to swiftly indict, arrest, and prosecute all Financial and Economic crimes cases, starting with the Reports generated by the General Auditing Commission (GAC), irrespective of those named and highlighted by the Reports of the GAC. Mr. Weah and his entire Government can travel from county-to-county in Liberia; it will not change anything and how the Liberian people see Mr. Weah and his CDC-led Government. By refusing and failing to indict and timely prosecute Financial and Economic Crimes in Liberia, Mr. Weah and his Government’s image will remain the same, dark, wanting, and not appreciated by any Liberian residing in and outside of Liberia. Liberia and its citizens are wealthy people, by she is being poorly run year-in-year-out by every incoming government of Liberia.

  2. Cllr Jayweh,
    If you feel that Liberia is being run poorly by the CDC government, you should be a man and rise to the occasion. In other words, do not sit back, recline in your rocking chair and complain. Do Something! Run for the upcoming presidency. Don’t act like a coward. Get out there Jayweh. Prove your gentility. It’s about time that a gentleman from Grand Bassa county had shown grit. So step up to the plate. Make yourself known. Demonstrate your truest intentions.

    I know you are an affiliate of the Rainbow Coalition. But the Rainbow Coalition, (RC), is aligned with Alexander Benedict Cummings. Cummings’ affiliation could pose an unsolvable Conundrum for you because of his popularity. If push comes to shove, you have to show gravitas by disentangling yourself from the weaknesses of the opposition. Your sincerety to contest the presidency will be unobserved if you run your campaign in the bedroom. So do something, otherwise something will do for you a disfavor.

    Thanks for listening.

  3. Mr. Hney,
    Why are you attacking me for publicly expressing my view? Am I not by law, entitled to Freedom of Speech? I, need not remind you that I do have and every Liberian certainly has such right and legal opportunity to fearlessly express him or herself. By the way, Mr. George Manneh Weah and every member of his CDC-led Government know that the Republic of Liberia and its citizens are wealthy country and people. But, financial and economic crimes, such as Property Theft, Misapplication of Entrusted Property, and Economic Sabotage, are blamed and responsible for enhancing and continuing the life of poverty in Liberia. Mr. Weah, can visit every village, town, district, and county in Liberia, as long he and his Government want. As long as he refuses to indict, arrest, and prosecute financial and economic crimes in Liberia, his visit, certainly will not change the hearts and minds of our people.

    The solution, terminate Liberia’s Ministers of Justice, Finance and State for Presidential Affairs, Frank Musa Dean, Samuel D. Tweah, and Nathaniel F. McGill, instruct and staff the office of the Solicitor General of Liberia with independent and qualified attorneys, revisit all the Reports of the General Auditing General Commission (GAC), swiftly indict, arrest, prosecute, and convict all those named in the GAC’s Reports to timely recover Liberia’s stolen wealth, assets, and properties misapplied, and accordingly apply all funds recovered to help strengthen Liberia’s development and advancement.

    Financial and Economic crimes have overtaken and overburdened Mr. Weah and his CDC-led Government; for neglecting, refusing, and failing to swiftly indict and prosecute financial and economic crimes in Liberia, Mr. Weah’s visit will yield no fruit. Staff the office of the Solicitor General of Liberia and instruct qualified and independent-minded attorneys to swiftly indict, arrest, prosecute all those named and listed in the Reports of Auditor General of Liberia. Liberia and its citizens, want results and not mere presidential visits, empty speeches, and sharing meals.

    Liberia and its people know better, and they will not elect anyone whose culture and tradition are alien and run contrary to Liberia’s cherished culture and tradition. In or before 2023, Liberians would have known who is culturally and morally fit to lead Liberia. Boys will marry to girls in Liberia and not the other way around. Those that stole Liberia’s revenues and resources and established political business, will not see the face of power and the presidency in Liberia.
