“Let’s make President George Manneh Weah a Benevolent Dictator.”  — Minister Samuel D. Tweah, Analyst News, September 9, 2020

The above statement was made by Minister Samuel D. Tweah, Jr. on September 8, 2020.  Continuing, Minister Tweah craved for Liberians across the country, especially, partisans and sympathizers of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) to help make President George Manneh Weah a 

BENEVOLENT DICTATOR.  Does Minister Tweah know the meaning of Benevolent Dictator? Benevolent Dictator is the ruler of a Benevolent Government. We will therefore first define a Benevolent Government. A Benevolent Government is a government in which an Authoritarian leader exercises ABSOLUTE POWER OVER THE STATE but is perceived to do so with regard for the benefit of the population as a whole. A more simple definition is “It is the form of government in which ABSOLUTE POWER IS CONCENTRATED IN THE HAND OF THE LEADER OR A SMALL CLIQUE. We will give you some qualities of such a government. 

  1. The leader or president controls all branches of the government and the media. 
  2. The leader of this small clique carries out intimidation, murder, imprisonment, violence and other human right abuses to control the population. The leader makes the people fear him. 
  3. The leader is surrounded by cult personalities, who make the leader appear divine. 

A benevolent dictator does no wrong. Do Liberians see these qualities above in the CDC Government? 

The answer to the question is YES. The people around the president tell him that he is the GREATEST PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY. His infrastructure development in six sub-passed all infrastructure development put together since 1847. And interestingly, he believes them. We saw the impeachment of an Associate Justice, Kabineh Ja’net for Judicial Opinion, he gave in cases that were appealed to the Supreme Court when served as Justice in the Chamber. This action is a violation of Article 73 of the Liberian Constitution, which reads “No Judicial Official shall be summoned, arrested, detained, prosecuted or tried civilly or criminally by or at instance of a person or authority on account of judicial opinion rendered or expressed, judicial statements made and judicial acts done in the course of a trail in open court or in chambers, except for treason or other felonies, misdemeanor or breach of peace ……..”. We also saw the removal of the Magistrate of the Monrovia City Court, when he ordered that Henry Costa’s Radio Station equipment be returned.  Need not tell you about the removal of the five commissioners of the Liberia Anti -Corruption Commission, when the commission was preparing to indict the Agriculture Minister and other official government for corruption. The cult personality around the president equally does no wrong. The actions of the CDC Government perfectly fits a Benevolent Government. Those politicians and permanent Liberians, who are endorsing the CDC Presidential candidate are endorsing a Benevolent Government. Liberians have faded memories or do not read the country's political history.  Minister Samuel D. Tweah, who asking Liberians, partisans and sympathizers of the CDC to make PRESIDENT WEAH A BENEVOLENT DICTATOR grandfather and granduncle Dadwho Welleh Twe and Plenyono Gbe Wolo were victims of a Benevolent Dictator. Likewise the granduncle of Henry Pedro Costa, Benjamin Green Freeman commonly known in Liberia political cycle as B.G. Freeman was a victim of such a government. A great son of Grand Bassa County, Counsellor Joseph Henry Findley was expelled from the senate on the influence of the Benevolent Dictator.  It is very interesting for the minister to propose such an idea in this twenty-first century. We equally cannot understand how those, whose fathers and grandfathers were victims of a Benevolent Government are today endorsing an individual that runs a government as a Benevolent Dictator. 

The story of how the country started and how we first got a Benevolent Dictator. 

Liberia  started  as  a  multi -party  system  when  it  thought  about  applying  the  tenets  of  the  modern  form  of  governance  with  its  accompanying  rules  and  regulations.  The  two  original  parties  that  participated  in the  first  presidential  election  were  the  Pro-Administration  Party  of  Joseph  Jenkins Robert  and  Anti -Administration  Party  of  Samuel  Benedict.  The  election  was  in accordance with Article  1  of the 1847  constitution  and  this  article  was  maintained  in  the 1985  constitution  of  Liberia.  Article  1  of the  Liberian  Constitution  reads,  “All  power is  inherent  in  the  people.  All  free  governments  are  instituted  by  their  authority  and  for  their  benefits  and  they  have  the  right  to  alter  and  reform  the  same  when  their  safety  and  happiness  so  require.  In  order  to  ensure  democratic  government  which  responds  to  the  wishes  of  the  governed,  the  people  shall  have the  right  at  such  a  period;  and  in  such  a  manner  as provided  for  under  the  constitution,  to  cause  their  public  servants  to  leave  office  and  to  fill vacancies by  regular  elections and  appointments.” Article  1 of  the  Liberian  Constitution  is  couched  in  accordance  with  the  doctrine  of  the  French Philosopher  Voltaire,  who  said  the  people  have  the Right to  change  the  leadership  of  the  government  if  their  happiness  and  safety  are  threatened,  for  all  good  governments  are  constituted  for  the  happiness  and  security  of  the people.  That security includes the protection of their properties. If  they  are  not  happy  with  the  government’s  leadership,  they  change  the  leadership  at  regular  elections  not  by  the  muzzle  of  the  gun  but  by  their inherent  democratic  power. The  democratic  system is  based on  Voltaire's  philosophical  thoughts  of  government,  Voltaire’s  philosophical thoughts of  government  influenced  Thomas  Jefferson,  the  father  of  American  Modern  Democracy,  and  Benjamin  Franklin  who  is  another  great  American  scientist  and  Politician. Voltaire also  advocated  for  Free Speech,  separation of  state and  religion  and  fought against  slavery.  Before 1951, the country had a multi- party system.  Beside  the  Pro-Administration  and  Anti -Administration  Parties, other  parties  that  were  active  in  Liberian  politics  were,  United  People  Party  (UPP).  Reformation Party ( RP),  Independent  Party  (IP),  Republic Party ( RP),  Independent  True  Whig  Party  (ITWP),  True Whig  True ( TWP), People  Reformation  Party ( PRP),  Reformation  Action  Party  (RAP), People  Democratic  Party  (PDP),  and  the  list  goes  on.  In  fact, it was Mr. Didwho  Welleh  Twe, who  founded  the  UPP  and  was  nominated  as  a  candidate  to  contest  for  the  presidency  in  1951  on  the coalition ticket  (RP &   UPP).  Tubman was afraid that he (Twe) could win the election.  He, Tubman intimidated him and tried to kill him.  Candidate Twe fled to Sierra Leone and Tubman was elected unopposed.  Unfortunately, the multi -party system in Liberia was destroyed by the country’s late President William V.  S. Tubman in 1955 after the fake assassination attempt.  It  took  the  country  thirty-four  years  (1951-1985)  to  restore the  multi -party  system after  the sacrifices  of  many  lives  and  properties.  Many  past  Presidents  of  Liberia  have  tried  to  return  the  country  to  a  one-party  system  but  they have failed  and  we  call  on  all  Liberians  to  continue  to resist one party system or Benevolent Government. 

The  story  of the  quietus  of  the  multi -party  system  in  Liberia.  In  1943  the country went  to  a very  important  election,  one  political leader ( Edwin J .  Barclay)  made a very fundamental blunder by supporting the candidacy of (William V. S.  Tubman Sr.) a 48-year-old  man for the leadership  because  he  did  not  want  to  manipulate  the  constitution.  He  supported  him  despite  his  obvious  acute  qualification  deficit  for  leadership.  He  felt  that the  48-year-old  man would  not  do  as  much  as  he  did  as  a  leader  and  therefore  created  an  appetite  for his  return  to  politics  and  leadership.  The former president underestimated the 4 8-year-old candidate. Academically,  he  was no  match  to  the  others ,  who  were  interested  in  leadership  (Samuel  David  Coleman,  Clarence  L. Simpson  Sr. Gabriel  Dennis  Sr.,  Benjamin  G.  Freeman and the list goes on).  Tubman  was  not  as  read  as  all  the  above  but  he  was  STREET  SMART.  Because  of  his  intent  to  come  back,  he  recommended  the  amendment  of  the  requirements  for  the  leaders  in the  constitution.  During the elections, the proposition for the amendment was on the ballot.  The  True  Whig  Party  carried  a  Tubman/  Simpson  Ticket  and  they  won.  During  that  election, a  proposition on  amendment  was introduced  and  the  REFERENDUM  passed,  giving  the leader  an opportunity  to  contest  for  one  four  year  term;  meaning,  the  leader  would  be  elected  for  the  first  term  for  eight  years  and  would  contest  for  another  term  for  four  years.  When  Tubman  was  elected  and  began  to  experience  the  glamor,  power,  luxury  and  associated  benefits  enjoyed  by  the leader,  he  found it difficult  to  leave  power.  He  used  the  country’s  resources  to  buy  over  the  security,  lawmakers  and  the  judiciary.  He even appointed is first cousin (Anthony Dashwood Wilson Sr. as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He now had control over the three branches of government.  When  contested  for  the  third  term  on  the  True  Whig  Party  Ticket,  there  were two  other  candidates  for  the  presidency  (Edwin  James Barclay  of  the  Independent  True  Whig  Party,  former president  and the man  that  sponsored Tubman  presidency  and  William  O.  Davis-Bright, an Independent Candidate.  Tubman saw this as a big threat to his leadership.  And  by  the  end of  the  start of the third  term,  all  potential  sons and daughters  were  either in jail or became  his  supporters.  He established and ran a TOTALITARIAN REGIME.  He became a Tyrant.  He  could  not  see  himself  living  in  the  country  as  an  ordinary  citizen. He  held  on  to  power  up  to his  demise on  June  23,  1971  after  27  years  as  president  of  Liberia.  In  order to  hold  on  to  power,  he became  corrupt,  nepotistic,  imperialistic,  and  a  demi-god in  the  country.  Even  after he  died  in  the  London  Clinic in  Great Britain,  it  was  difficult  to  announce his  death.  Nobody wanted to the first to say Tubman was dead.  Many  officials of government felt  that  this  was another  scheme  of Tubman to arrest  those  he  felt had l presidential ambition. Anyone that questioned his authority was equally arrested and later jailed or killed.  Many good  sons  and  daughters  of  the  country  were  victims  of his  autocratic  rule,  even  those who  supported him  initially. Even three sons (Hon.  James Y.  Gbarbea of Bong County, Gabriel G.  Farngalo  of Nimba  County,  and Robert  Kennedy of Lofa  County), who  he appointed as superintendents  of  these  counties  were  arrested  and  jailed  including Liberia's Ambassador ( Henry  Boima  Fahbullah  Sr.)  to Kenya  because  he  felt  that  these  sons  were becoming  popular  and may one  day  have the desire contest  the  presidency.  Many of his original friends were victims. This  tells us  that  a man who  greed  for  power  and  money  has  no  permanent  friends.  This is how the country became a one party state.  So  those  of  you, who  are  endorsing  a candidate, who partisans and supporters  are asking us to support the candidate ambition to become a Benevolent Dictator will  tomorrow become  a  victims,  when  the  country becomes  a  BENEVOLENT  STATE. It has already started.  Just investigated why the Speaker lost the election and you will realized that that big hands were involved. Especially big hand in the government.  He was getting too powerful and ambition it is believe that he was considering other position higher than Speaker. 

Liberia is a very rich country with vast resources. Geographers,  Mining  Engineers,  and  Geologists  tell  us  that  Liberia  is  the  fourth  richest  country in West Africa.   The countries that are richer than Liberia are Nigeria, Guinea Conakry, Cameroun, and Ghana.  If any  sound-minded Liberian  were to  be  elected  as President  of  this  country, this  would  give  that  person  the  right  and  privilege  to manage  these  colossal  resources.  It  would  also  give him/her enormous  power  and  glory, as well  as access  to  the  country’s financial  vault.  This  is the  reason  why  every son  and  daughter  of  this  country  wishes  to  be  the  president of Liberia. 

Because  the  past  presidents  did  not  create  opportunities  for  the  sons  and  daughters  of  the  country  to  advance  both  academically  and  financially,  they  traveled  abroad  for  greener  pastures.  Those who achieved  both economic and  academic  power  return every six  years  to  participate  in the country’s  democratic  process  for  positions  such  as  president/senate/representative.  They  come  with  the  message  that  they  have  the  solutions  to  the country's  old  age  problems  (infrastructure,  energy, healthcare,  transportation,  rule  of  law, security,  education,  entertainment,  etc).  Some  won  and  some  did  not  win  but  the  problems remain  unsolved.  The people  of  Liberia  have  suffered  too long  because of  the  lack  of these facilities  and  services.  The people’s  life  dangled in  the  balance,  and  they  are  looking  for  good  leadership.  Many  of  their  sons  and  daughters  have  failed  them,  including  the  so-called  “Iron  Lady”.  Even  the  current  boy  from  Gibraltar  has  not  done  enough  for  them.  The  roads  remain  deplorable,  the  health  system  remains  a  mess,  educational system  at  its lowest  in  the  history,  energy,  water  and sanitation,  solid waste management  poorly  managed,  and  the  people  live  in  abject  poverty.  Drug cartels have taken over the country, all functionaries of the country have become incurably corrupt including the integrity institutions created by the “Iron Lady”.

This  is  not  to  say  that  the  country  never  had  some  good  leaders.  Take for example, the country’s President called Dr.  William Richard Tolbert Jr.  He  had  a  positive  vision  and  plan  for  the  country;  he  was  called  “SPEEDY”  by  many  Liberians.  During his  reign,  a  lot  of  good  things  happened  but  he  came  too  late;  the  people  wanted  a  change  and  it  happened  while he was president. He was a victim of circumstances. Today the  country  has  retrograded  fifty  years  in  everything  and  at  every  level.  Those who came after him were worse in terms of mismanaging the country’s resources. Many  of  the  country’s  leaders  mismanaged  the  country’s  resources  and  squandered  many  opportunities.  As  rich  as  the  country is,  it  remains  one  of  the  poorest  countries  in  the  West  African  Region.  Many  of  those  sons  and  daughters  who  were  given  leadership  were  carried  away  by  personal  glorification  and  greed.  These  actions  of  past  leaders  caused  the  civil  crisis,  which  caused  the  death  of  250,000  of  the  country’s  citizens  and  the  destruction  of many  of  the  basic  infrastructures that provided services,  as  well  as  a  massive  brain  drain.  People  of  the  country  continue  to  have  faith  in  their  sons and  daughters  and  pray  that  one  day they will  elect one  that  will  change  their  lives  for the  better. 

In  the  2023  General  and  Presidential  Elections, there  are  candidates who  are  complaining. They believed that their votes were transferred to other candidates.  But  let  us  go  back  to previous  elections  and  see  the  pattern  of  how the people voted.  In  the  2011,  General  and  Presidential  Elections,  one  of  the  country’s  sons,  Rev.  Kennedy  Gbleyah  Sandy  returned  and  participated  in  the  Democratic Process  twice 2011  and  2017.  The  first time,  he  got 13,611 votes  or a  mere 1 .13%,  and  the second  time,  he  got 5,3 43  votes or  0.34%.  It  seems  that  the  Revered has retired  from  the  country’s  politics  because he did  not  contest  in  the  2023  election..  Many  years later  another  son,  Mr. Alexander  Benedict  Cummings  after  spending  over  thirty  years  in the  other  well-developed  countries, returned  and participated  in  two  of the  country’s  elections.  During  the  first election  (2017),  he  got  a little  over one hundred  thousand  votes  amounting to  7.2%.  Six  years  later  (2023),  he  participated  again  and  this time,  he  got  less  than  thirty  thousand votes  amounting  to  1.62%. This  son  and  his  supporters  believed that their  votes  were  not  counted  because they  spent  a  lot  of resources  and  time  for  Mr.  Cummings to be so massively rejected.  He and  his  supporters  forget  to  understand  that  when, he  contested for  the first  time,  his  running  mate  was  someone  who  was  a  former  instructor  at  Cuttington  University  College in  Suacoco,  Bong  County, one  of  the  country's  prestigious  university.  He also served as Minister and Ambassador in government. He had a base, unlike the running-mate in the 2023 election. 

The people on the ballots matter in the country.  In  its  recent history,  two  faces  from  a  minority  group  on  the same  ticket  could  find  it  hard to win  an  election in  the  country  for  a  very  long  time  to come, no  matter  how  competent  they are and  how  much money they  spend. Just  look  at the performance of  the banker’s  (Dr. Mill Jones)  ticket in  2017  (Jones  &  Reeves). The banker provided Micro-Loan to all market women and the Liberia Business Association.  The  banker’s  ticket  was  rejected because  of  the  names  of  the  candidates.  This  is  something  that  future  political aspirants  in  the  country should  take note  of.  The political advisers to Cummings ill-advised him on the selection of the running-mate. 

It seems the people of the country are getting wiser.  They  are  angry  and  now understand that  many  of  those  who  were  returning  from  the  advanced  country  and  wanting  leadership, majority  of  them  are  children  or  grandchildren  of  those  who  looted  the  country’s  resources  during  an  earlier  era  in  the  country.  They  have  the  economic  power,  but  they  need  the  political  power  to protect  their  economic  intersegments.  One good example is the case of Nigeria.  To win a presidential election in Nigeria now-a-days, the tickets must carry a Christian-Moslem or Moslem-Christian composition. 

With  reference  to  this  October  10,  2023  elections,  no p arty  got  the  required  votes  to  be  leader  of  the  country  and  there  will  be  a  RUN-OFF because  the  law  requires that  to  be elected  leader  requires  50% plus  one  vote.  The  issues  on  the ballots  are  many and history  is about  to  repeat  itself in  Liberia.  All historical events repeat themselves. 

As Liberians prepare for the RUN-OFF, they  should  be mindful  of  whom  they  elect.  Should they elect a person, whose administration has violated all the democratic tenancies?  This is the million-dollar question for all Liberians to answer. Should they elect a candidate, who partisans want him to be a Benevolent Dictator?  These  are questions  Liberians  need  to  consider  as they  prepare for  the  Run-Off. Are Liberians not try of being ruled by Benevolent Dictator?  PEOPLE  OF  BONG,  NIMBA,  LOFA  GRAND  BASSA,  GRAND  KRU  AND  MONTSERRADO  COUNTIES),  remember  what  a  BENEVOLENT  DICTATOR  did  to  your  sons and  daughters  between  1951  to  1971.  If  you  re-elect  President  Weah,  who  partisans  and  sympathizers  want  him  to  be  a  Benevolent  Dictator,  it  means  your  son  and  daughter's  sacrifices  were  made nothing.  We want you to think about Hon.  Gabriel G.  Farngalo, James Y.  Gbarbea, Robert Kennedy, Henry Boima  Fabullah Sr,  P.  G.  Wolo, D.  Twe   B.  G.  Freeman,   Albert Porte and the list goes on. We call on you and to rejects  the  CDC candidate,  who  the  Finance  Minister  wants  for  him  to  be  a  Benevolent  Dictator.  someone who  has  realized  the  personal  benefits  associated with the position  of  President,  will  this  person  leave  easily  if defeated?  Our answer is a big NO. He  will  find  it  difficult  to  leave these personal  GLORIFICATIONS characterized in  the  ill-gotten  properties  and  vaunting  fame. Would he maintain the lifestyle he has been used to?  For  example,  traveling  on  a chartered  plane  or  spending  48  days  in  a  five  star  hotel,  and  wasting  country money on himself and friends while the  country’s  pending  and looming  issues  such  as  the  Security,  Rule  of  Law,  Corruption, Extra Judicial  Killing,  Bad  Roads,  Poor  Healthcare,  Poor  Education, High Unemployment,  Food  insecurity,  Energy, Water  and  Sanitation,  Solid  Waste Collection  (Environment),  Wasteful  Spending,  and  other troubling  matters  are  negatively  impacting  the  lives  of  the  people.  All of the above are very critical for their survival as a people and country.  Liberians should be mindful of who they elect.  If we  elect  the  wrong person, we  would  be  electing  someone who  will  practice  Tubmanism.  We  already  see  Tubman's  behavior in  one  of  the  candidates  in  the  Run-Off.  There  are  people  who  rather  see the  country  in  FLAME  than  honor  the  democratic  process.  It  is  alleged  that  such  people  have  started  looting  public  offices,  and  the recent  fire  incident  at  the  Ministry  of  Finance, Planning, and Development  needs  to  be investigated.  Liberians should prepare for the worst in the next few weeks. 

Considering what  has  been  happening, do  you think the  post-election  in  the  Run-Off will  be  peaceful?  Which  of  the  candidates  will  deliver  on  all that  are  required  to stabilize the socio-economic status of  the  country?  Is  there  a  possibility  that an  amendment  to  the  constitution  of  the country will be  done as was  done  by  Tubman?  Historical  events  can  repeat  themselves;  and  we  would  be  surprised  if  one  of  the candidates  (Weah)  does  not  amend  the  constitution.  Can the  young candidate  in  the  Run-Off  maintain  the  current  lifestyle  on  his  pension  and  savings  from  loots.  Following  his  records,  no  cabinet  members  dare  say  the  truth  to  him. Remember, the CDC Government attempted to amend the constitution in 2020. The CDC Government also tried to pass a pension bill that would help the official to maintain their lifestyle just case they lost the election.  In fact, he tells them what to do.  We  saw  this  from  the  Executive  Governor  of  the  Central  Bank  of  Liberia  many  years  ago  when  the  governor  said,  “I  will  follow  the  leader’s  directive,  even  if  it means  putting  aside  the  Act of the Central Bank and  doing his will”.  This  is  the  only opportunity  we  have  to  prevent  another  president  from  ruling  us  for  27  years.  We cannot miss this opportunity.  We  need  to  rally  all  the  registered  votes  to  turn  out  for  the  RUN-OFF  in  order  to  avoid  a  repeat  of  what  happened  in  the  country  68  years  ago.  Political Historians are fully aware of what happened 68 y ears ago. 

We  were  in  conversation  with  a  friend  a  few months ago,  who  wanted  to  be  president  of Liberia.  We asked him this question. ‘Why do you want to be president?” He answered  as follow: “ IN  THIS  COUNTRY,  THE  PRESIDENT  CAN  MAKE  THE  GOVERNMENT  TO  PAY  FOR  THE  OXYGEN  HE  BREATHES.”  He told us that the president controls everything in Liberia. The president is a demi-god. 

We  have  spoken  to  some  friends;  they  are  worried  about  the  influence  of  one  individual,  who  they  think  might  influence  many  decisions.  We  agreed  with  them,  but  that  individual  will  not  be  the  leader  of  the  county.  The  individual  of  concern  will  not  control  the  security  and  the  judiciary  and  the  legislature.  He can easily be check-mate.  It  is  easier  to  check-mate  one  individual  than  to  check-mate  a  political  leader  that  controls  the  security  and  has  established  a  private  militia with manpower  of  1,500  men  and his  militia  is  better  equipped than the government’s security agencies.  Currently,  the  tentacles  of  the  militia  were  felt  in  three  regions  where  citizens  were  injured  and  some  killed.  Right  now,  we  the  people  are more powerful  than  the  militia and  its  tentacles  and  we  should  be ready to  act  now  without  asking  questions  for  a  peaceful  and DEMOCRATIC  SOCIETY.  We cannot afford to be ruled by a Benevolent Dictator.  We do not want a Dictator as our leader.  A  Dictator does not entertain suggestions from his people.  He gets what he wants (any amount of money, women, any car, etc.).  This RUN-OFF is about protecting DEMOCRACY. It  is  about  rejecting  a  candidate,  who  partisans and  sympathizers want him to  be  a BENEVOLENT DICTATOR. THE CHOICE IS YOURS, LIBERIANS. We thank God for using Minister Tweah to tell us CDC the plan before the election. You now know the CDC PLAN for Liberia, which is making George Manneh Weah a BENEVOLENT DICTATOR.

The master plan of some Libertarians and supporters of the government and its agents if they observe that they are losing are as follow: 

  1. Thwart the democratic process by preventing the announcement of the winner after the Run-off. 
  2. Ask  the  supporters  to go  on  the  streets of  cities crying “ stolen election” as was  done in  America by Thump and his supporters. 
  3. Hijacking the process 

 If they can achieve one of the above plans  and ensure that NO ANNOUNCEMENT  IS  MADE up to three weeks in January of 2024, they will ask for an INTERIM GOVERNMENT. Some Social Medias are already propagating this idea. 

 We would like to close with a verse from the Holy Book – the Bible, Mathew 6:33: “BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.”  As we go to the Run-Off, we would equally say to you, you will be voting for your future and those of your children and grandchildren.  You will be voting for security, good governance, good education, good  healthcare, good roads, tourism, corruption-free society, clean environment, employment, energy, water and sanitation, food security, rule of law and transparent justice system. But these are not possible if we reelect GEORGE MANNEH WEAH BECAUSE THE LIKE OF TWEH AND OTHER WANT HIM TO BE A BENEVOLENT DICTATOR. 

IF THE OPPOSITION GROUP DO NOT JOIN FORCES, THERE WILL NO FUTURE FOR MULTI-PARTY  SYSTEM  AFTER THIS RUN-OFF. UNITE NOW OR SAY GOODBYE TO MULTI-PARTY SYSTEM. AND LAST QUESTION, WHAT DOES THE IRON LADY WANTS? EDWIN BARCLAY SUPPORTED WILLIAM V. S. TUBMAN BECAUSE HE HAD THE APPETITE TO RETURN TO POLITICAL POWER. BUT WHY IS GEORGE WEAH BEEN SUPPORTED BY THE EX-PRESIDENT IS THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION AT THE DETRIMENT OF THE LIVES OF MILLION OF LIBERIAN? WE ALL SAID THAT ANY OPPOSITION CANDIDATE WOULD DO BETTER THAN PRESIDENT WEAK.  AND TO CUMMUINGS, WE ASK, DO YOU THINK A BENEVOLENT PRESIDENT WILL ALLOW TO LIVE PEACEFULLY IN COUNTRY? 

A WORD TO THE WISE IS QUITE SUFFICIENT!!!
