Ex-Liberia VP Joseph Boakai Urges Liberians To Vote Out Weah

The presidential candidate of Liberia’s opposition Unity Party and the country’s former vice-president, Ambassador Joseph Nyuma Boakai, has carpeted President George Weah for endless foreign junketing and mind boggling corruption that is capable of returning the country to the nation’s pre-war conflict situation if not brought to a halt immediately.

The former vice-president, at a press conference in Monrovia, the nation’s capital, Wednesday, noted specifically that the major problem confronting Liberia at the moment is lack of leadership. 

He accused Weah of unconscionable corruption and profligacy that Liberians must bring to an end.

 “As I speak to you, President Weah has left the country and will be away for the next seven weeks without any tangible explanation to the Liberian people. It is needless to say that his long stay away from the country with no tangible reason is unprecedented in the history of the Liberian Presidency. Of course, we are aware that President Weah’s presence or absence are the same, but at least with minimum effect on our financial resources.”He said.

Accusing the Weah government of mind boggling corruption, Boakai specifically cited the National Housing and Population Census preparation, which, he said has been marred by “controversies, characterised by outright corruption and lack of well-defined policies.
