To use a football analogy, we need to substitute all of the ruling party senators on December 8, 2020 and bring in new senators at halftime in the game to give us a chance of winning.
The Dec. 8 senatorial election is a pivotal one for our country. It is an opportunity for individual Liberians to try and understand what is at stake in Liberia and how it could be mitigated. It is only then that they will cast their votes for the right candidates.
As December 8, 2020 looms, the Collaborating Political Parties must unite behind specific candidates and ensure that their message is clear and focused on the record of this government. Do not let your egos undermine the opportunity to rescue Liberia.
I believe that dual nationality could be good for Liberia and Liberians if it is done right and for the right reasons. It will restore the sense of belonging to our brothers and sisters in the diaspora who have taken up other citizenships, freeing up their investment potential which could create a lot of small businesses and contribute to the livelihoods of many ordinary Liberians.
Associate Justice Kabina Jaâ€™neh was impeached by the House of Representatives in August 2018. He was convicted and removed from office by the Senate on March 29, 2019. He faced four counts in the bill of impeachment; however, he was found guilty on one count: the Road Fund.
On July 25, 2018, I lamented our claim to independence for not taking ownership of our failings or actions within our control to change the trajectory of our nation. Having read the editorial by FrontPage Africaâ€™s Rodney Sieh published on 25 July 2019, I felt obliged to give a different analysis. There are some points in the piece that I agree with, but a lot I believe are misplaced. I would like to deconstruct the narrative proffered by my countryman, whom I respect and applaud for his excellent investigative reporting.
Autocrat, dictator, repressive, corrupt, and the list go on. These are a few of the words being used by opponents and others to describe President Weahâ€™s tenure. And, I must say that the president is not doing much to change those descriptions of his short stint as president so far.
My advice to the government is to focus on their achievements and stop trying to mislead the Liberian people. It would only lead to more shots in the leg which does not help their case with cynics like me.
