Letter to the Editor: Liberia Has Become An Embarrassment!

Many who shared my view feel that there are no redlines left for terrorists to cross. This is a psychological war and succumbing to the strategies would give the enemies superior hand. Let stand up with one voice and call to win this war!

The Editor,

President George Weah is a leader who has no interest in solving problems. Even worse, he lacks decision-making capabilities. You cannot succeed if all you want to do is benefit from the perks of an office but not take assume the problem-solving responsibities of such high office!

How can the Government set up a committee for every situation?
The Vice President complained about arrears and insecurity and a committee was set up. Now a committee is set up to investigate gas shortage, and many other committees….Does the executive work through committees? No!!!!! Only the legislature.

No vision
No ownership
No accountability
No problem solving capabilities
No decision making capabilities
Listening is also a problem

How do we even function as a legislature?
we can only make recommendations and our recommendations are never respected. The best option is impeachment, do we have the numbers?no!! The legislature is also compromised and few people are only fighting to distinguish themselves or serve as a deterrent to worst decisions.

President Weah’s leadership is proving to be irresponsible and unresponsive to Liberians. Under his presidency, Liberia has become an embarrassment to its neighbors, and an increasingly difficult place to live.

We deserve so much better!

This year, 2020, and in 2023, we have a chance to respond, loudly and clearly.

We must make our disagreements known. We must make our feelings known. We must express ourselves with the power of our votes, and say, enough IS enough!

Yours sincerely,

Senator Nyonblee Kangar-Lawrence
