The award-winning advocate didn’t hold back her words as she blasted the divided opposition community members and leaders.
“It is time for supporters of the opposition candidates to get their acts together and STOP the war of words.”
Madam Gbowee said, since the disintegration of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) in Liberia, she has observed, with sadness, individuals who were formerly friends and allies constantly attacking each other and their candidates.
On her official Facebook page Madam Gbowee said, the former Vice President Joe Boakai’s supporters, including Henry Costa, constantly attack and jab at Mr. Alexander Cummings. Likewise, Mr. Cummings supporters, including Moriah Yeakula, repeatedly throw jabs and shades at Boakai’s supporters.
Pointing to the leader’s direction who have been mute she said, “More disheartening is watching leaders shed their integrity. “
Madam Leymah Gbowee said in Liberia many people believe anything from so-called popular voices as the absolute truth about other people’s characters.
Giving her prospective of Liberia, the former national orator reiterated that “Our nation, Liberia, is bleeding on every front—intellectually, economically, socially, and spiritually. Liberia desperately needs individuals that can combine all of their abilities, void of personal feelings, to work together to solve the problems.”
She said, despite this apparent need, why do we thrive on division and resist inclusion?
She questioned supporters of the opposition politicians, “ Do you all think that either candidate stands a chance divided?
Madam Gbowee believed that if the insults and disrespect persist, there will be zero wins for either of your candidates.
She wants EGOS out of the way and allow common sense to reign amongst the opposition political parties. Madam Gbowee believe that the rift in Liberia that she described as “bleeding nation needs individuals committed to reconciliation and inclusiveness to take us to the next level.”
She’s afraid that judging from opposition supporters’ behaviors, I am afraid that if their parties are successful in 2023, we will suffer from “DA OUR TIME” syndrome.
Given the current state of affairs, it seems like “EVERYBODY DAMN STUPID HERE!”
