MONROVIA: Ahead of presidential and legislative polls next year, Liberians have been warned not to reelect President George Weah because it could be disastrous in terms of “continuous bad governance” in the country.

Liberian People’s Party (LPP’s) presumed presidential hopeful, Cllr. Tiawan Saye Gongloe, who is awaiting his party’s approval from its convention scheduled be held at the end of this year believes the Liberian nation is heading for hell which does not augur well for its people.

Gongloe who is the former President of the Liberia National Bar association (LNBA), made these comments over the weekend in the United States of America (USA), where he is holding and meeting with various states’ chapters of Team Gongloe, Liberian communities and ordinary people.

According to him, at the moment, Liberia is gradually slipping away, thereby returning to the ugly past of various dictatorial regimes during which rule of law was not respected, making the population not knowing who to turn to for redress.

Gongloe meeting brought together Liberian ‘radicals’ including human rights campaigners, political activists, and members of Gongloe’s own Movement for Justice in Africa (MOJA).

Others are the Liberian People’s Party (LPP) USA chapters’ as well as some prominent figures of both past and present regimes in Liberia and hundreds of well-wishers.

He is on a 3-month tour of the United States telling his compatriots (Liberians) and Americans during most of these engagements that his public service record speaks volume for him for anybody to take a look.

Gongloe said though he may not be the only qualified person in terms of education, but he is the most suitable person with impeccable character and integrity who Liberians can entrust with the leadership of the country in 2023.

The LPP presidential aspirant indicated that he is only person who can redeem Liberia from its present predicaments mainly whenever it comes to the fight against fraud, waste and abuse but most so, corruption and poverty reduction.

On Friday, 13 May, Gongloe arrived in the United States to rally support for his presidential bid during next year’s presidential and legislative elections which are expected to be tense.

Since his arrival in the USA, he has met with various groupings or organizations as well as prominent individuals of the Liberian communities in Atlanta, Philadelphia and Ohio who are solely interested in his presidential ambition.

This Friday, 27 and 28 Saturday, May, Cllr. Gongloe, who hails from votes-rich Nimba County will hold town hall meeting with the Friends of Gongloe, its board of directors and coordinators and also attend the convention of the United Nimba Citizens’ Council or UNICCO.
Today, (Wednesday), he is holding a teleconference or meeting with the Friends of Gongloe discussing what he refers to as “matters of importance” to his successful electioneering.

On Sunday, 29 May, the Liberian community including their churches will hold intercessory prayer service for the presidential hopeful also in Ohio after which there will be a meeting with TEAM GONGLOE of the North Dakota branch.

From Friday, 10 June to Sunday, 10 July, Gongloe will hold town hall meetings in Minnesota, Philadelphia, Staten Island, Trenton Town, Boston, Washington DC among others before wrapping up his engagement.

Ahead of the much-awaited presidential and legislative elections in Liberia, power seekers in Liberia have been visiting the United States, and other countries, scouting support from Liberians abroad.

So far, presidential hopefuls including Alexander Benedict Cummings, political leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC); former Vice President, Joseph Nyumah Boakai, who is also political leader of the former governing Unity Party (UP), among others have visited the USA in apparent preparation for the 2023 elections.
