The Chairman for the Center for the Exchange of Intellectual Options (CEIO), Franklin Wesseh, has warmed Liberians not to bewitch the George Weah-led government, but rather join hands in fostering the agenda that will bring about growth and development of the nation.
Though Chairman Wesseh did not give any reason for his statement, he further warmed Liberian against ill-witching the government on grounds that when the government does not perform well, it will generally have a negative reflection on the nation and its citizens.
The assertion was made on Wednesday during an interview with the paper on Cary Street whenn he spoke on a wide range of national issues.
He holds that with the collaborative efforts of all Liberian, the country can regain its status amongst the comity of nations
Wesseh bewailed "We should hope and pray that he does well so that we will reap the dividends of his good governance. Whatever the case is, he is now our president, you cannot reverse this and so we all need to rally our support around him so that the well-being of citizens will be prioritized above self." "I'm of the conviction that the George Weah-led government is going to be a success."
He described Pres.Weah as a proven reconciler who is passionate about his people and concerned about uplifting them from the poverty to economic vibrancy, all of he was able to demonstrate throughout his soccer career.
Commenting on the Weah's zero tolerance approach on corruption, Wesseh said the president was not a good friend to corruption, stressing "I have no doubt that he would be able to target corruption with sincerity."
According to him, there are laws on the book but the implementation of these law remain a challenges noting when the leader is lacking the political will to deal with his colleagues you find out that sitting things will be repeated over and again and we will still have the same thing hampering our society.
"I hope Weah would learn some lesson from the Ellen approach of dealing with corruption because some of the way for a government to fail is lacking the will to deal with your colleagues, if you allow them perpetrated evil against the state and go with impunity is something that will hamper the growth and development of the country," he concluded.
