The Standard Bearer of the opposition Unity Party Amb. Joseph Nyumah Boakai has described as woeful the depth at which the country’s governance system has descended under the CDC-led Government.
Speaking with citizens of Montserrado County, District#4, the Ex Vice President, languished over the complex economic situation ordinary citizens are faced with, pointing specifically to the recent increase in the prices of rice and other commodities on the Liberian market.
He named the inability of the government to provide redress to the shortage of rice on the Liberian market as a product of bad governance, gross incompetence, corruption, and reckless handling of the state of affairs in the country among others as some factors that have governed the vast majority of the population in poverty.
Amb Boakai then assured Liberians that under his leadership as President of Liberia, he will ensure the country will be placed on the trajectory of sound economic growth and that the Liberian economy will be very responsive to the needs of Liberians.
“People don’t understand that leadership is about the people. These people from the other side have dragged this country down to its lowest, but I assure you all, my leadership will not leave this country the same way” JNB.
Referring to President Weah’s recent statement that likened Monrovia to the city of Miami in the US, the Unity Party Leader said President George Weah is living in a massive bubble that has impaired his vision of the harsh conditions ordinary Liberians are enduring, and the deplorable state of affairs of the country under his leadership.
He called on all well-meaning Liberians to treat the pending 2023 general and presidential elections with utmost urgency and seriousness.
He added that Liberians must decide if they are happy with the state of affairs of the country under Mr. Weah’s leadership or want to part ways with entrenched corruption, nepotism, incompetence, and the erosion of all good governance practices instituted by the Unity Party-led government before the CDC took state power in 2018.
The UP Standard Bearer encouraged all Liberians feeling the brunt of Mr. Weah’s leadership to remain strong, and courageous and make sure to vote against the CDC-led government in 2023.
