A Public Plead to President Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia
Dear Mr President,
I appreciate your efforts to protect the people of Liberia against the Coronavirus Epidemic.
However, I respectfully disagree with the manner in which you have attempted to ensure order in Liberia.
The delivery of your public message, in my opinion, was respectfully endangering to the life of a citizen, considering the potential outcome and expectations from the people and their responses to negative information.
As the President of a free society, it is your responsibility to protect every citizen of the Liberian society, especially one who is charged with protecting the environment, land, water, and air. A member of your administration.
Mr. President your public identification of a citizen with the Coronavirus was inappropriate and I am rather disappointed that you failed to have the right professionals to have rendered wise advice in addressing this life-threatening event.
I want to publicly ask you to please ensure the protection of Dr. Nat Blama’s life and that of his family despite this incident.
I can assure you that there is a logical explanation for this event, why because I have worked with Dr. Blama with many foreign environmental professionals will express similar views that Dr. Blama will have a clear explanation.
Allow me to inform you that this individual, Dr Blama was one of the many hardworking men and women who saved lives in Liberia during the “Ebola Crisis.” I pray you don’t forget his heroic efforts.
Again, I pray that my criticism of your actions against Dr Blama is not taken with any negative intent. As my President, the greatest respect is expected but I often correct those I come to appreciate.
As a professional health and safety consultant, I understand the importance of containment but at the same time, I believe that you had the authority to address the issue without endangering the life of one of your citizens.
May God continue to bless and guide you.
Anthony Nahn, Jr.
