MONROVIA: Nimba County’s charismatic Senator, Prince Yormie Johnson, has called on President George Manneh Weah to win back the confidence of the Liberian people ahead of the 2023 Presidential and General elections.
Senator Johnson indicated that President Weah needs to see that power is gradually being transferred from him to the opposition political parties, citing the outcome of the December 8, 2020 Special Senatorial elections across the country.
He said the results of the just-ended Special Senatorial Elections which favored more opposition and independent candidates is a clear manifestation as it relates to the need to address the needs and aspirations of Liberian by the Weah Administration.
Senator Johnson made the disclosure on Sunday when he delivered his sermon at the Christ Chapel of Faith in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.
According to Senator Johnson who is also a ‘Prelate’, President Weah is running his government based on ‘’sectionalism’’ as most of his appointed officials hail from the South-eastern region of the country.
He stressed that such governance practice is unfavorable, and as such, it should be stopped.
PYJ, at the same time, highlighted the key role he played in the election of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), led government, headed by President Weah.
The Nimba County Senator who is now an ally of President Weah stressed that the government led by the Weah-led administration has a cabinet dominated by South-easterners.
Interestingly, the Chairman of the ruling CDC, Mulbah Morlu, on Monday, at the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Headquarter disclosed that the CDC government is not deterred by the results of the just ended 2020, Special Senatorial Elections.
Mr. Mulbah and the CDC accepted the outcome of the elections and commended the Liberian electorate across the country for their participation in the elections and the National Referendum which were generally peaceful.
Mr. Morlu said CDC will continue to work harder to enhance Liberia’s democracy, ensure sustainable peace and stability and achieve the much needed and desired economic development and transformation they are pursuing as a government.
Chairman Morlu assured the public that the CDC-led government would push for a unified and more inclusive government to accelerate the resolution of complex economic and development challenges and improve delivery of basic social services.
He said the CDC and its collaborators are likely to win four counties, the CPP is likely to win six counties and independent candidates are likely to win four counties.
The CDC Chairman noted that the loss in Montserrado, for example, does not say that voters are making judgment on the President but they are rather sending a message to the CDC and its Government to address the challenges and concerns of the Liberian people in a manner that secures their trust.
He described the SSE as free, fair, and transparent; Promise Karteh Writes.
