The National Chairman of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change cautions opposition here that it is too soon to render guilty verdict against the leader ability of President George Manneh Weah.
Addressing a news press conference Wednesday, July 11, in Monrovia, Chairman Mulbah Morlu says recent criticisms by opposition political parties and critics are needless as the Weah administration is still in its formative stage.
According to Morlu, despite the government being about six months old on the national scene, it has achieved a lot as compared to previous administrations.
He notes the CDC-led administration inherited ‘massive corruption mess’ that President Weah and his team are struggling to clean and the current economic hardship that engulfs the country is a making of the former ruling Unity Party.
“It is very early for guilty verdict to be rendered against a president, who inherited a massively corrupt administration. This government in less than five months has attracted huge investment valued at about US$1billon. This is the only administration that insists civil servants should be paid ahead of officials of government. This has never happened in our governance process. The CDC government has achieved in the shortest possible much than expected,” he argued.
He says the reason investors have taken keen interest in investing their monies here is based on the President’s track record, adding, the President is corruption-free and a commoner who has come to the presidency to serve and give back to the people who voted for him. Their votes were clear message of change and that change is what President Weah is doing.
He franticly defends that President Weah is not responsible for the high cost of living, noting that the governance system has been total untidiness prior to Weah coming to the presidency.
Morlu continues that the President Weah will not work in the tune of the media and opposition who only criticize without providing strategic recommendation to the administration for onward reformation.
