RESPECT ELECTORATES’ MADATE

PRESIDENT WEAH PUTS AGITATORS ON SPOTLIGHT AT UNGA The beauty of democracy comes not only when you win elections; it is also and perhaps most importantly when you fail to win, and nurse your defeat and patiently await another round of elections. This is not the case with some politicians and their supporters in Liberia, and this is certainly not something contestants of the 2017 presidential elections can afford and stomach.

LETTER TO THE MASSES OF LIBERIA – II

By Sherman C. Seequeh My Dear Masses of Liberia: In this second letter of mine to you, I want to draw your attention to and disabuse your minds from doomsayers’ usual proposition that we, as a people, are still in Egypt.

The intent of the doomsayers to keep the “We’re Still…

DILLON EARLY SHOW OF TRASPARENCY: A CASE IN POINT

Abraham Darius Dillon’s quest to be elected in the Liberian House of the Senate, like any other political hopeful, was hinged on a plethora of campaign promises. But for him two, among his many pledges, sank well in the minds of voters: make public his assets through declaration and in print and take only five thousand United States dollars as pay monthly. He had belabored the issues of exposing monthly earnings of law makers to the public, taking only the amount of five thousand United States dollars off whatever amount there is as monthly salary and committing the balance to public account for county development to the extent that all eyes were turned to his direction for fulfillment. Of course, these two pledges had not…
